Issue With Selecting Item In Dropdown

I am having a strange issue with a dropdown.


The dropdown filters results based on what the user has selected in another dropdown. Depending on the selection the dropdown might have no results, one result or multiple results. 


I have a onSelect method configured which allows the user to just click the dropdown in a one result scenario.

I have a onChange method configured that calls when the user selects from a dropdown with multiple results. 


The issue is that if the dropdown has more than one result the only way to select the first result is to first select another list item and then change back to the first item.


Anyone know why I am getting this behaviour?


Kind Regards

Hi @Jonfarmer4999 ,


Do you mean that the first choice of dropdown can't be selected if items have multiple choices, unless first to select other choices?

Which control do you use? Combo box or DropDown list?

Can you share more properties and formulas of Dropdown? Such as Defaults, Items, OnSelect, OnChange properties.


It is a really weird issue. Maybe you can have a try with new dropdown to check if the issue still remains.

If is, please post more formulas what would be more helpful to check out this issue.


Best regards,


Hi @v-siky-msft 


Yes that is correct. It is a dropdown


Items: Filter(Opportunities,_customerid_value = Dropdown2.Selected, statecode='Status (Opportunities)'.'0')


Defaults: "1"


onSelect: If(CountRows(Filter(Opportunities,_customerid_value = Dropdown2.Selected, statecode='Status (Opportunities)'.'0')) = 1, Navigate(Screen1,ScreenTransition.CoverRight,{ID: Dropdown1.Selected}))


onChange: Navigate(Screen1,ScreenTransition.CoverRight,{ID: Dropdown1.Selected})


I can't work out why I am getting this behaviour.
