Dropdown Patch and Collect in gallery

Hi all, I'm new to powerapps and I'm hoping you can help me out here.

 

I have a form and gallery connected to sharepoint. I followed Shane's repeating table video for this.

 

The issue I'm having is with dropdowns and combobox's within the gallery. I have a save button after each line, with a patch and collect function. This all works well with text input fields as demonstrated in Shane's video. However I don't know how to write these functions with the dropdowns.

 

For Patch, where text input is {LineText: Input_Text.Text}, I have for the dropdown {LineDrop:Input_Drop.Selected.Value} -----------> this seems fine

 

For Collect, where text input is {LineText: ""}, I don't know what to do with the dropdown. 

 

Does someone know what to put here? Thanks!

If this is your collect to provide the next blank line in the collection, you don't need to put anything there.   All you are doing is creating a blank row in your collection to use for your next line in your repeating table.

 

Here is an example from one of my apps that is a 'repeating table':
