Dataverse combobox DefaultSelectedItems to show stored value


I'm creating a Gallery editable grid and i would like combobox to show the the stored value as DefaultSelectedItems but Parent.Default doesn't work like dropdown from Classic control does.

The data type is Dataverse Choice column.


Attached referential image.  Thanks in advance for your help.

@acepeda Is this ComboBox inside an EditForm? What is the Parent of this ComboBox?

Hi, This combobox is inside a Gallery.. i'm implementing a 'Excel-Like' input.


@acepeda in that case the Parent is the Gallery and I'm sure the Default value of the Gallery is not going to have Items of the Type that the Combobox is expecting. Hope you get the point. 

I Just solved:

DefaultSelectedItems: Table(Lookup(Choices(Mainportfolio_Choices),Value = ThisItem.MainPortfolio_NM))

@acepeda well that's exactly what I told you. You can't use Parent.Default

Hi @acepeda
