Now my gallery form is almost perfect but I can't change the combobox (with single select and search) to a dropdown because it contains a list of thousands of employee names (from the Office365-connector). Is there any chance this property could be made available for comboboxes?
The combobox has, since it was introduced, supported empty selection, so there's no need to set any property for that.
Thank you for looking into this!
I have documented the specific usecase in this topic that is now removed from the spamfolder:
And I found the solution in your blogpost:
In the DefaultSelectedItems property from the combobox I had to enrich the formula with: If(EditForm1.Mode=FormMode.Edit;....;Blank()). I would not have guessed that myself. You're always welcome to screen the topic and give advise for best practices 🙂
The old Advanced Property in DropDown DataCardValues named "AllowUnsetValue" has been renamed to "AllowEmptySelection"
On Dropdown-DataCardValues you can set this "AllowEmptySelection" property to value "true" and the Default-Property to "" then you will have a blank default value in the Dropdowns. For all FormModes, of course
It makes sense to set this Default-Blank only to FormMode.New otherwise each edit will update with blanks:
Not available for Combo Boxes
I am struggling with this as well. I am using a dropdown control, and if I *change* either the Default or Reset, then I am presented with a drop down with nothing selected. But once I select something, and stop and restart the App, the previous selection persists. I think I need to start with the empty control, because I'm loading a gallery once the dropdown item is selected. I don't want to load the gallery with the previously selected item.
Just a quick sidenote. The property is called AllowEmptySelection and not AllowUnsetSelection.
But after posting this I saw that someone already mentioned this. Dope 😉
