Toggle Default value in a form.

Hi experts, 


I have a used a toggle input control in a NewForm. When setting up an EditForm for this same particular datasource, i would also place a toggle input in place to also show what value was selected before (true / false). 


In the EditForm, the datacard.default value is set to ThisItem.Received and the toggle.default control within it is set to Parent.Default.


However, the toggle.default control will throw off an error:

Warning: Expecting a true or false value. The current value may cause unexpected behavior.

Using ThisItem.Received on the toggle.default control itself will also throw the same error. 


The datacard actually does indeed show the correct intended value, however would like to know if this would throw off any potential problems in future.

Hi Randy, 


The datasource is a SQL table. The column format should either be Boolean or String.
