Get ID from selected SharePoint Person Column

Hi

 

I have a SharePoint list with a person column.

In PowerApps I have a Combobox where I list all the persons in this SharePoint list.

 

Now I need the ID of the item in the SharePoint list for the person selected from the combobox.

 

In the combobox items i have:  (This lists all the people from the list in the User column, User column is a person column)

Sort(
    Distinct(
        Listname,
        User.Displayname
    ),
    Result,
    Ascending
)

How would I get the SharePoint item id for the selected user?

 

If I don't use a person column but a single line of text then I just do a LookUp.

LookUp(listname,'Full name'=ComboBox1.Selected.Result,ID)

 But how would I do the same if the column is a person/people column?

Hi @JimmyWork ,

Something like this should work

LookUp(
   ListName,
   User.DisplayName = ComboBox1.Selected.Result
).ID
