Multi select check boxes populate on display/edit from SP list

Hey folks,


I have an app with multi select check boxes that work great for the initial form input, however on edit/display, I can't seem to get the logic right for the forms to reference the sharepoint list and check the selected boxes from the Choices column. Any guidance would be appreciated.

The new form logic
Update for datacard:  




and in each checkbox I've got this


If(check1.Text in First('ListName').Values.Value,true,false)



So my question... how do I recall these selections once they're saved in the list? I've been unsuccessfully arm wrestling this so far. Thanks all

Please use this code in the OnSelect property of the checkbox

This doesn't seem to work either. To ensure I was clear - the form has already been filled, this is when it's being re-opened for display/edit and I want the checkboxes to populate same as the user initially entered it.
