Show text based on a drop down value, conditional.

I need to show different text based on the drop down value.  For example if someone selects A in the drop down then the text box below displays "you have selected A" , if B then you have selected B" etc

Thanks for your help @WarrenBelz  on this 🙂

I used the below in the end to populate a text field

 

 

If(
DataCardValue2.Selected.Value = "Cyber Security",
"Here is some cyber examples",
DataCardValue2.Selected.Value = "CMAR for Finance",
"CMAR example text!"
)

@MikeBlairTP ,

If that is in the Tooltip, you can shorten this

Switch(
   Self.Selectd.Value,
    "Cyber Security",
   "Here is some cyber examples",
   "CMAR for Finance",
   "CMAR example text!"
)

Hi @MikeBlairTP ,

In a Label Text

"You have selected " & DDName.Selected.xxxx

where xxxx is the valid output of the dropdown (Value/FieldName etc)

This solves perfectly the example I give above, thank you. 
However, I am trying to a block of text when some selects an item from the drop down. The text will change depending on the value of the drop down. 

@MikeBlairTP ,

Can you please give me an example of what needs to show and where you are getting it from.

Thanks, I’m trying to create a tooltip style function like the below. I’ve seen static tooltip using an icon and text when you hover, but mine is dynamic.

@MikeBlairTP ,

Where are you getting the "tooltip" value that matches "Cyber Security" from? Also you can have dynamic tooltips on a control like a combo box, but they will only react once you have selected an item, not in the drop-down list as you have illustrated.

Reacting once selected should do. I can always add some text to say click to see examples. Are dynamic tooltips straight forward to setup?

You just need a list of selected items and their corresponding tool tips, then lookup that list.
