restrict user to manual edit in dropdown

i have created an app, and it has one Choice drop down field for user to select Yes or No options. how can i restrict the user not to type the manual text in that dropdown box, for now it is accepting if user manually type any text other than Yes or No option given in Drop down.

Hi @PrabhuRajaram ,

Change the control type from Combo Box to Drop-down and users will have to select one of the options. If you want to show a blank box initially, change the AllowEmptySelection to true.

@PrabhuRajaram ,

You will need to add a new drop-down into the card, change the Default to the DefaultSelectedItems of the Combo Box, the Items to the same as the Combo Box change and the Update of the data card to replace the combo box name with the drop-down name. 

I assumed when I posted that you may know how to do this, so if you do not understand the concept, it may be better to leave it alone.
