Sharepoint list Choice field 'Value' property not appearing

Hello, everyone.

 

I'm a beginner in PowerApps and i believe i found my first difficulty.

I have a Sharepoint list with a Choice column and i would like to use the information in that column as a filter using a Dropdown control. In order to achieve that, i've read a few tutorials here in the Community, but i always face one problem: the Value property (I guess) for that column is not available to be used with the Dropdown control and I don't understand why.

As a test, i created a simple list and tried to generate a PowerApp from that to show you:

 

Here's the list. the type data for the column 'Opções de teste' is ChoiceHere's the list. the type data for the column 'Opções de teste' is Choice

 

The app I generated. Notice that the choice field appear to each registerThe app I generated. Notice that the choice field appear to each register

 

And here, I expected to see the Value property to the Choice column in that list, but it didn't happenAnd here, I expected to see the Value property to the Choice column in that list, but it didn't happen

Change your Items property formula on the dropdown to be based on Choices.

i.e.  Choices('Teste DropDown'.yourChoiceColumnName)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
