Create Collection from Combobox SelectedItems

Hi all,

 

I've been trying to figure out and can't seem to create a collection with the selected items in a multi-select Combobox.

 

I've done a simple test: I added a button and set the OnSelect to:

 

ClearCollect(CollectionName, Combobox.SelectedItems) = which returns blank, and

 

ClearCollect(CollectionName, Filter(SharePointList, ID in Combobox.SelectedItems.ID)) = which returns blank (in this case the SharePointList is the name datasource as the Combobox)

 

I've even tried to set a global variable but that also returns blank.

 

Is it possible to create a collection from a combobox selecteditems?

 

Thanks

HI @mccardj ,

Yes  - ClearCollect(CollectionName, Combobox.SelectedItems) is the correct syntax, but is the button/icon outside a Form and the combo box in it. Also what mode is the form in. This may be caused by a known bug as per this thread.

Hey @WarrenBelz , thanks for your reply! Weird - when I reloaded the app, the ClearCollect worked instantly. Thanks so much!
