Is the Chevron color set to transparent (e.g. RBGA(0,0,0,0))?  Does the Chevron color on the right hand pane have a color assigned?

Thanks.  The fill color is black and the background is clear (255, 255,255).  Seems the problem is the field sometimes is not connected to the data.  It is working now.  Someone suggesting replacing the choice fields in SharePoint with text boxes and placing dropdown controls directly on top and setting the text field default to the selected value of the dropdown control.  

Generally frustrated with what seems to be a "flakieness" in the PowerApps interface.

 

Thank you

Wow, that sounds like a painful alternative.  I'm glad you were able to determine the cause though.
