Set Field drop down on form

I want to set drop down value on form based on toggle button value.


I tried to set the "default" property of dropdown to toggle1.value but it shows error saying property expects record values but return boolean value.


Also any other way to set value of dropdown field apart from patch?


Need support to correct above issue.


Also is there any way by which we can connect toggle control directly to dropdown field containing yes/no ?

Re: Set Field drop down on form

You need to set the Default property of the dropdown to something like this:

If(Toggle1.Value, "Default value if true", "Default value if false")

Where the default values are the text of what needs to be selected.

If your values are "Yes" and "No" then something like this:

If(Toggle1.Value, "Yes", "No")

Thanks @Meneghino,


Also i am trying to use radio button for choice field as we use in out of the box form.


Even if we select render as radio button, powerapp renders it as dropdown only. Is there any other way to do this ?
