I’m new to using Python and Streamlit and trying to figure out how to calculate to the max from a selection from a dropdown menu.
I have a dataframe with different column names. In the dropdown menu, all the column names show up as expected. From the selection, the idea is that the max value is found from the column(column consists of numbers, beside the column name). I later want to graph it but need to figure out this piece first.
df=pd.read_csv('test.csv', parse_dates=["Date"]) sb_options = list(df.columns) metric=st.selectbox('Select the Metric', options=sb_options) calc_max = metric.max()
Right now it can’t find the max value because the app sees the selection as a string.
I appreciate all the help I can get, and let me know if I need to elaborate further.
