Text label retain value in edit mode and still be editable

Hello, I have a label and the text property is set to, ListBox1.Selected.Result, which works fine but when I use the app and go to edit mode the label is blank again 

 

I have tried, a version of a formula I am using for my dropdowns in the dropdown "default" property, but labels do not have a defualt property. 

 

If(EditForm1.Mode = FormMode.Edit, ThisItem.'Maintenance Asset Description'.Value, ListBox1.Selected.Result)

 

This formula in the text property does retain the value but now the label does not change when a new item is selected from the list. 

 

any help appreciated!

Is the label inside the datacard for the List Box?  What is the default for the List Box?

yes they are inside the same data card, I think I am following your logic, set the default up for the list box and keep the test property on the label as listbox1.selected.result ?

That's how I do it with controls added to a data card.  In regards to the List Box,  I make the Default what I want it to be if the default is blanks still.

 

If(Isblank(Parent.Default),"Defaulttextinlist",Parent.Default)

 

I do not use a label though,  I use the actual Datacard Field and it is set to the value of the selected item.  I make this invisible to user

 

This means that is a user goes to edit mode it gets the value of teh saved data if there is some or a value based on a default

yeah this work perfectly, I just added the formula below to my list box default property

 

If(EditForm1.Mode = FormMode.Edit, ThisItem.'Maintenance Asset Description'.Value, " ")

 

and kept my label's text property set to 

 

listbox1.selected.result 

 

I was using a dropdown but switched to a label and a list box to have the text wrapping 🙂
