How to pull in existing value without using parent.default

I am customizing a sharepoint list form with the new powerapp forms for sharepoint lists.  I have multiple cascading text inputs that I am using gallaries to populate by clicking the text input field and opening a gallery then selecting a gallery item and using update context to put it into a variable then I set the default value of the text input to the variable.  Problem I am having is that it is not bringing in the existing value on the edit form because it is not set to parent.default.  How do I bring in the parent.default item when opening the form in edit mode?

 

My fields are ClientType, ClientName, ContactName.  It works fine on the New Item form just doesnt bring in the values for which I am using variables instead of parent.default into the Edit form.

I changed the fields to dropdowns and it seems to work better that way rather than using a gallery.

Hi @sscarcella,

 

You need to understand that within one EditForm, you could only bind with one data source. Since your Editform already has the SharePoint list data source, then all the controls in data cards will need connect to the data of this SharePoint list. If your scenario meets above requirement, please post your configuration about the variable here.
