Populate/Pre-Select a Multi-Select [RESOLVED]

Hey there!
Sooooooo… I am trying to get this bad boy to pre-select on a Multi-select.

To give you an idea of what this is doing. I’m using a Bulk Add I created to add in National Parks ($get_nps). Users have certain National Parks they affiliate with and that is already in their meta (u_nps). I then want to high-lite, on another form, which parks that user has already set for their “default”. I am using this code that I pilfered from:
https://legacy.forums.gravityhelp.com/topic/pre-select-an-option-based-on-user-data

add_filter( 'gform_pre_render', 'populate_45_8' );
function populate_45_8( $form, $field ) {
  if( $form["id"] != 45 ) return $form;
  if( $field["id"] != 8 ) return $form;
		$field = GFFormsModel::get_field( $form, 8 );
		$existing = $field['choices']; // grab the already-exisintg choices from the form

  		$user_id = get_current_user_id();
		$user_data = get_userdata($user_id);
	  	$capabilities = wp_capabilities;
		$get_role = get_user_meta( $user_id, $capabilities, true );
		$user_role = key($get_role);
				$meta_key_used = 'u_nps';
	  			$get_nps = get_user_meta( $user_id, $meta_key_used, true );

		$existing = $field['choices']; // grab the already-exisintg choices from the form
		$choices = array(); // set up the array

			foreach($get_nps as $item) {
				if($item != ' ') {
					if($item['text'] == $get_nps) $selected = true;
					if($item['text'] != $get_nps) $selected = false;
				}
				// rewrite it so the choice set in the profile is selected and all others are not
				$choices[] = array('text' => $item['text'], 'value' => $item['value'], 'isSelected' => $selected);
				$field['choices'] = $choices;
			}
    return $form;
}

And when I test it, it works fine:

  GF_Field_MultiSelect Object
  (
    [type] => multiselect
    [_is_entry_detail:GF_Field:private] => 
    [_context_properties:GF_Field:private] => Array
        (
        )

    [_merge_tag_modifiers:GF_Field:private] => Array
        (
        )

    [id] => 8
    [label] => National Parks
    [adminLabel] => 
    [isRequired] => 1
    [size] => medium
    [errorMessage] => 
    [visibility] => visible
    [storageType] => json
    [inputs] => 
    [choices] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [text] => Acadia National Park, Maine
                    [value] => Acadia National Park, Maine
                    [isSelected] => 1
                )

            [1] => Array
                (
                    [text] => Arches National Park, Utah
                    [value] => Arches National Park, Utah
                    [isSelected] => 
                )

But it does not work/high-lite in the actual form:

Any thoughts???

Here’s the answer to my own question… sometimes I wish others shared as much as I do… I think I’m starting to get jaded…

add_filter( 'gform_pre_render_45', 'populate_45_8' );
add_filter( 'gform_pre_validation_45', 'populate_45_8' );
add_filter( 'gform_pre_submission_filter_45', 'populate_45_8' );
add_filter( 'gform_admin_pre_render_45', 'populate_45_8' );
function populate_45_8( $form ) {

  		$user_id = get_current_user_id();
		$user_data = get_userdata($user_id);
	  	$capabilities = wp_capabilities;
		$get_role = get_user_meta( $user_id, $capabilities, true );
		$user_role = key($get_role);
		$meta_key_used = 'u_nps';
		$get_nps = get_user_meta( $user_id, $meta_key_used, true );
		$use_nps = key($get_nps);

  		$custom = get_option( 'gform_custom_choices' );
		$existing = $custom['Destinations'];

		  foreach ( $form['fields'] as &$field ) {

			if ( $field->type != 'multiselect' || strpos( $field->inputName, 'populate_45_8' ) === false ) {
				continue;
		  }
		$choices = array();

		foreach ( $existing as $nps ) {
		  if($nps == $get_nps){
				$choices[] = array( 'text' => $nps, 'value' => $nps, 'isSelected' => true );
			}
		  	if($nps != $get_nps){
				$choices[] = array( 'text' => $nps, 'value' => $nps, 'isSelected' => false );
			}
		}
		$field->choices = $choices;
	}
	return $form;
}
