How do you use CDS picklists in a dropdown?

Hello all.  I have created a custom picklist in CDS.

How can I obtain the values to display as choices in a dropdown control in PowerApps?

Thanks for any input.

There is now a new extension to the DataSourceInfo function that allows you to do this:

 

DataSourceInfo(MySource, AllowedValues, MyPickListColumn)

This returns a table of available values.

 

Thanks PowerApps team!

Can you use DataSourceInfo() to filter the picklist results? I want to limit the choices of my dropdown that is populated with a picklist. Basically only show valid picklist values based on a previous filter/choice.
