Unable to load selected items from SharePoint column into a combobox

I have a combobox on my app. 



On change I have the data patching to a single line text in my SharePoint list. It stores names such as Jane;Paul;Jessica. 

However when I go back to the page on my app where the combobox is, the items I selected do not load back into my combobox.

How do I get the selected items to stay loaded on my combobox without it disappearing?

Hi @sngledev ,

I have a blog on this process - note it has a couple of disadvantages with partial updates (to be honest a multi-choice column to store the data is a better idea)
