Get all values in a multiselect control

Hi all - I have a few multiselect dropdowns on my powerapps form.  How to I return the value of ALL the values selected?  If I use "DataCardValue1.Selected.Value", this will return the LAST value I selected (ie - if the dropdown contains "Red", "Green" and "Blue", DataCardValue1.Selected.Value will just be the last of the values I selected.  I want to capture ALL of the items)

 

I tried DataCardValue1.SelectedItems.Value, but that does not seem to work.  Anyone know how to reference all of the selected values in a multiselect control?  Thanks!

If you'd like to show the selected items from a dropdown in a Text label you can do so like this

Concat(DataCardValue1.SelectedItems,Value&", ")

 

To remove the trailing comma and space at the end do this

 

Left(
    Concat(DataCardValue1.SelectedItems,Value&", "),
    Len(Concat(DataCardValue1.SelectedItems,Value&", ")-2
)

 

 

Note: the reason your original code did not appear to do anything was because it would return a single column Collection of values which cannot be displayed in a Text label.
