Re: Dropdown List

Gallery also works with tables, so replacing the ComboBox1.Items = ... with Gallery1.Items should work. Try this:

Gallery1.Items=Table({Value:"A", Description:"Active"}, {Value:"I", Description:"Inactive"})


And then add a Label control to the gallery. Most likely, the label will be set automatically with "ThisItem.Description" and therefore will display "Description" values.

It is only asking for the text and not the Item

Is "MachineType" a record? Try ThisItem.MachineType.Value (or other text field)

Re: Dropdown List

MachineType is the column of the table

Re: Dropdown List

Is your label inside a gallery? If not then you should use something like Label1.Text=Gallery1.Selected.MachineType instead.You can test with the following formulas:

Gallery1.Items=Table({MachineType:"A", Description:"Active"}, {MachineType:"I", Description:"Inactive"})

Label1.Text=ThisItem.MathineType (assuming the Label is inside the gallery). 

Label1.Text = Gallery.Selected.MachineType (Label is outside the gallery)
