Populate gallery with allowed values of a column

Hi there! 


I am trying to set up a gallery that displays all allowed values of a SharePoint choice column.

I tried it with


text = DataSourceInfo(YourDataSource, DataSourceInfo.AllowedValues, "FieldName")

However, it did not work as it returns a table and not text. 


I guess I have to first set the gallery items (?) and then get the text of the item in the list. I appreciate any help.

Hi MaxE,


Please check this documentation about DataSourceInfo at here:


The description about DataSourceInfo.AllowedValues is “What types of permissions can users be granted for this data source? If not set by the data source, returns blank”.


So I assume that if you haven’t granted the user the types of permission for the data source, it will return blank.


Best regards,
