Update a gallery item using a button

I am creating a leave request form. The manager will select a request from the gallery (similar to the Leave Request template) and select either approve or decline buttons.  I am getting an error when using Patch to set the approve button.  The approve button will change the data in the ApprovalUpdate field on the SP list (a choice field). 

 

What I current have in the OnSelect for the button: Patch(RequestTimeList, LookUp(RequestTimeList, ID=ThisItem.ID), {ApprovalUpdate: "Approved"});Refresh(RequestTimeList)

 

Getting an invalid argument type error.

The choice field is expecting a record, so try this:

 

Patch(RequestTimeList, LookUp(RequestTimeList, ID=ThisItem.ID), {ApprovalUpdate: {'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",
Value:"Approved"}});Refresh(RequestTimeList)

Thank you, that worked like a charm. The only thing I changed was that it didn't like the ID=ThisItem.ID, change it to ID=Gallery2.Selected.ID.  Thanks again.
