Reset ComboBox using manual entered Items is not working


I'm having issues trying to reset a combobox, which uses a custom item list, in a custom tablet-mode app.


ComboBox.Items = ["Option1","Option2","Option3"]

ComboBox.Default = 

ComboBox.DefaultSelectedItems = []

ComboBox.Reset = ResetVariable


I've tried adding a button to reset the combobox.. this didnt work

Button1.OnSelect = Reset(ComboBox)


I've tried adding a button to update the variable.. this didnt work

Button.OnSelect = UpdateContext({ResetVariable: true});UpdateContext({ResetVariable: false});


I've tried adding the context change, into the Screen.OnVisible + Screen.OnHidden hooks... this didnt work

Screen.OnVisible = UpdateContext({ResetVariable: false});

Screen.OnHidden = UpdateContext({ResetVariable: true});



any idea's of how to correctly reset a combobox, when the Items are hard coded ["Option1","Option2","Option3"]
ps. i don't want to add a "Empty" option into the hard coded values


thank you

Re: Reset ComboBox using manual entered Items is not working

Hi @Cam,


Instead of setting the DefaultSelectedItems to blank (nothing), try setting it to an empty collection ([]) - that should work:

ComboBox1.DefaultSelectedItems: []
Button.OnSelect: Reset(ComboBox1)

Re: Reset ComboBox using manual entered Items is not working

Yep that's what I've already got.
It works correctly when you test it in PowerApps Studio, but it you publish the app and try it in the PowerApps webplayer, it doesn't work 😞

Is there a workable solution that works for published apps?
