How do i pass a identifier value from the dropdown search widget on mobile? Currently i get a conversion error when i do an assignment in the OnSelect Action:

The problem is that the dropdown search expects items in the DropdownItem Structure which is only text.

Kind regards,



Hi BAs, you should use the built-in function TextToIdentifier to convert the value that is coming from the dropdown selected element to you variable.

of course you will need to make sure that value can be converted to the same data type as the Panel Identifier variable.
