Filter in Powerapps gallery with Choice column



I am using Dataverse for teams as database. I have a table with choice column (ex: Red, Blue, green).

I want to filter the gallery for this column. I have created a dropdown for this column. But when i am trying to filter on this column for the gallery i am getting error.(incompatible type conversion)


Formula i have used is: Filter(Questions, 'Test1 (Questions)' = Dropdown4.Selected.Value)


Please suggest.

Hello @Dronzer10,

You posted this a long time ago, and were you able to get the result you wanted?

I just tested this.

I have a table in Dataverse for Teams called: Stock Location. 

I added a Choice column on it called: AChoiceColumn

It has three choices: Red, Blue, Green.

I created a Canvas App. It has 5 rows. Three of them have a value of: Red.

I filtered the gallery to only show rows with the value of Red in the AChoiceColumn. 


Gallery before adding the filter:



Gallery after adding the filter:



The expression I added in the gallery's Item property is:

         'Stock Locations',
         AChoiceColumn = [@AChoiceColumn].Red


So it's:

         ChoiceColumn = [@ChoiceColumn].ValueYouWantToFilterOn


This excellent blog post by Tim Leung provides more information. Hope this helps.
