You could achieve this by creating a collection that stores those selections and then refer back to that collection elsewhere in the app. 

 

Let me know if you need a little more help on that and I have a few apps I can pull out what I used to acheive.

Re: Multiple textboxes use as Dropdown else where

Hi @Teja_Veleti ,

 

Are these text that you are trying to use as the options of a dropdown control inside multiple textinput controls? If so, then please follow below steps to achieve this:

1. Insert a button control, set its OnSelect property to:

ClearCollect(C1,{Options:TextInput1.Text},{Options:TextInput2.Text})

TextInput1 and 2 are the textinput controls' names.

 

2. Insert a dropdown control. Set below formula in the Items property of the dropdown control:

C1.Options

 

Regards,

Mona
