I have a drop-down field in my form, I am using below code on select:

DataCardValue7.Selected.Value= "9:00 AM"

Also tried with passing variable:

DataCardValue7.Selected.Value= varTime

  • Try creating a variable and then set its value on change of first control and use this variable as default value for your dropdown. Jul 24, 2019 at 7:33

  2. OnChange of your first control, Update the value of this variable like:

Change dropdown value OnSelect.
