Combo box control in PowerApps
A control that allows users to make selections from provided choices. Supports search and multiple selections.
A Combo box control allows you to search for items you will select. The search is performed server-side on the SearchField property so performance is not affected by very large data sources.
Single or multi-select mode is configured via the SelectMultiple property.
When searching for items to select, for each item you can choose to show a single data value, two values or a picture and two values (Person) by modifying the Layout setting in the Data pane.

DefaultItems – The initial selected item(s) before the user interacts with the control.

BorderStyle – Whether a control's border is Solid, Dashed, Dotted, or None.
BorderThickness – The thickness of a control's border.
