Trouble with filering gallery by ComboBox

I have a gallery of records.

I have a collection of a column in the records. e.g. Department Collection.


I would like to filter the gallery, show all if combobox is empty or combobox = "All". 

Or if an item is selected in the combobox then filter the records by it. Going by other posts I am sure I have it correctly set up but it just doesnt seem to work.


Here is a tester gallery I am using and the code:

Gallery Code:
Filter(SalaryData, IsBlank(ComboBoxDepFin_Test.SelectedItems.Result) || 'PAMS Dept' in ComboBoxDepFin_Test.SelectedItems.Result)


My Collection code and a screenshot of the options:
ClearCollect(DepCollection, {Result: "All Departments"});
Collect(DepCollection, Distinct(SalaryData,'PAMS Dept'));



I've also put a label and added the combo.selected.result but it seems to retrieve blank even when I am selecting an option.


Any one any ideas?

Hey @Rajeey3 ,


instead of ComboBoxDepFin_Test.selecteditems.result have you tried ComboBoxDepFin_Test.Selected.Result

try Selected.Result instead of selecteditems

I changed the code to :

Filter(SalaryData, IsBlank(ComboBoxDepFin_Test.Selected.Result) || 'PAMS Dept' = ComboBoxDepFin_Test.Selected.Result)


but as you can see it just doesnt filter? lol

You need to troubleshoot.

take a label and set text property to ComboBox.Selected.Value or  ComboBox.Selected.Result.

See what kind of data you are getting. your result should be 'PAMS Dept'. Only then it will work.


Also if 'PAMS Dept' is a choice type colum then you need to write 'PAMS Dept'.Value in filter query.




Yeah ive a label set up for it but also retrieves blank. And when I hover over .selected.result it says = blank in the formula bar.

Strange one when an option has been selected! 

The PAMS dept field is just a text field, collection code is above.

Hey @Rajeey3 


I hope you've to update like this in the gallery items property


If(IsBlank(ComboBoxDepFin_Test.Selected.Result), SalaryData, Filter(SalaryData,'PAMS Dept' = ComboBoxDepFin_Test.Selected.Result))



Possibly a bug? @Dominik-Winkler
