onvisible combo box selected value is Blank even though it already has some value

Combobox default selected items is filled with some value , but if we try to retrieve the value it's shows empty. Unless untill we select the value the combo box value shows as blank

hi @Malini_Saranya may i suggest you use the DefaultSelectItems instead on default property and set the property to the condition you wish. 

Hi @rubin_boer . The default property I meant was DefaultSelectItems only.

Cool, @Malini_Saranya 


Have a look at this example. Two dropdowns same datasource. The first one an empty defaultselecteditems and the next one just some function to give me one value. i could ask go for more than one value as allow multiple is selected.



what is your formula looking like?


Hope this helps




Issue is not while setting the value . I can see the value onvisible of page since the combo box has DefaultSelectedItems.


I am trying to compare the value of two combobox to see both has same value . So on select of the second combo box value there is a check condition cmb1.selected.value = cmb2.selected.value , even though combo box has value it is showing cmb1.selected.value is blank

ok @Malini_Saranya try cmb1.selected.YourColumn = cmb2.selected.YourColumn in my case it would be on the column myID







Hope it helps



Even though the cmb has Friday 17 , it still shows blank
