Powerapps Combobox -> Flow Creat Item -> SP-List

Hi all,

 

I have a combobox field with multiple choice options. The selected values should be send via flow to a SP-List. But the flow only gets the frist selected value. I think this happens because in can only use:

ComboBox1.Selected.Result

I get red underlining when I use:

ComboBox1.Selecteditems. or ComboBox1.SelectedItems.Result

How can i get this to work properly?

Suppose your Flow is expecting something simple like a regular string separated by a comma between each item, but you still need this string to be based on one or more values of the ComboBox SelectedItems - in this case you might need to try something like this:

 

With({_str: Concat(ComboBox2.SelectedItems,Value & ",")},Left(_str,Len(_str) -1 ))

Hi @ittruck 

 

You can also convert and pass your multiple values through as a json string as follows:

 

YourFlowName.Run(

JSON(ComboBox1.SelectItems JSONFormat.IncludeBinaryData)
)
 
Then use ParseJSON on other side so you can work with it.
 
Hope this helps

Hi @poweractivate ,

thanks for your advice I' ve recreated your example and after I changed value to result, it worked. 👍

With({_str: Concat(ComboBox1.SelectedItems;Result & ",")};Left(_str;Len(_str) -1));

 Thanks also to @AmDev  for your answer
