Issues with "Default" in Combobox

Hi there,


As the title suggests, I'm having trouble with the default in Combobox. 

So I have 3 frames: a browse, a detail (view) form and an edit / add form.

When people want to edit a field, I want the comboboxes, dropdowns and datumpicker to show the old data. I've got it working for the dropdowns and datumpicker, but the comboboxes doesn't seem to work. Everytime it displays: "Search items" instead of (for example) a customer.



I tried Parent.Default, but that doesn't work. It gives a red circle with a cross inside it which says something about that it expects the type of Record, but this rule produces incompatible value from the type Number. 


Thanks in advance.


I'd really love to know how to input the Current User as default in a particular combo box..... It would make life so much easier for my users....



We can use the below formula in the defaultSelectedItems , the catch is it accepts a record value and not a single data value in the control -->

Filter('Table', Id = Gallery.Selected.Id).ColumnBoundToCombobox

View solution in original post

En la propiedad DefaultSelectedItems de un listbox escribí el siguiente código:




Deseo que cuando es un nuevo registro por defecto esté seleecionado "contrato", pero se esté editando un registro muestre el valor que estaba guardado.


esto es un formulario de personalización de sharepoint hecho en powerapps.

Thank you so much, I had the same issue and this just helped me! 🙂


Super merci !
