How to get a dropdown filter for canvas controls?

I’m trying to create a canvas control that works as a drop-down select list for a table. However, I seem to only be able to do that for tables that reference the original table, but not the original table itself. My only option when creating a canvas control is a text search one. Is there a way to do this?

You solved it, thank you!!

For future reference, the solution is kind of weird. By default, when you create a canvas control to filter a table by a text column it will create a “text search” control. There’s seemingly no way to edit the control to change the type of control it is.

So instead, create a canvas control as a relation to the table you’re trying to filter. Then create a formula filter for the table that recreates what the canvas control would do: thisRow.Contains([canvas control name]) or Matches instead of Contains if it’s a single select.
