Prepopulate dropdrown (Edit mode of record)

Hello all,


My control on the form is a drop down, which works fine (, but when edit mode it will prepopulate IF the control type is Edit Text, but if I change it to Allowed fields(for drop downs) it disappears. I tried calling it explicitly via LookUp or gal<GalleryName>.Selected.<column name> but nothing shows up? Can I please get an assist; and also does this apply to ComboBox controls(Non multiselect) too or is there a different method chain for Comboboxes?


Thank you and regards

And for more context, for Items property on the dropdown is an array of strings, not from a datasource IE Sharepoint, SQL, etc. The combobox is using Office365Users connector
