display global optionset on an Embedded Canvas App

I have a Global OptionSet in Dynamics CRM which I have been trying to display on an Embedded Canvas App without any luck .Adding the field to the Form simply makes it look like a text field and I am able to display the currently selected value using Default set as ThisItem.fieldName but am unable to get it to display all the values as a dropdown which users can select and then update.

I thought this was basic stuff but have spent a few hours getting nowhere. Am I missing anything obvious, anyone can guide me on this please.

To display all the values from an option set, can you try to use the below expression on the "Items" property of the dropdown as:


Here, ColumnName is the name of column which points to the required option set.


Hope this Helps!
