Why am I getting two selections in my dropdown menus?

Brandon Granger shared this question 6 years ago

I have a dropdown menu which has four values ("", "Campaign", "Event", "General"). I am selecting one of the values from a label using this: "select(ddlMyDropdownMenu, lblMyLabel) on ddlMyDropdownMenu".

Whenever I do this, I get two selections in the dropdown menus. The first blank option is selected and then the value which matches my label is also selected.

Is this a bug in Justinmind because I cannot fix it no matter what I try?
