I have a combo box for a WPF windows application. The combo box is bound to some data on code and I created a DataTemplate to display multiple columns in the drop down box (see code). However, I am having an issue retrieving the selected value from the combo box. I have tried cboCustomers.SelectedItem, cboCustomers.SelectedValue, cboCustomers.SelectedBoxItem all to no avail. How do I retrieve this value?

<ComboBox ItemsSource="{Binding}" SelectedValuePath="CustomerID" Height="23" Margin="12,0,19,52" Name="cboCustomers" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Width="675">
            <ComboBox.ItemTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CustomerID}" Visibility="Hidden"/>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CustomerName}" Width="250"/>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CustomerState}" Width="25"/>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CustomerAddress1}" Width="175"/>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CustomerAddress2}" Width="150"/>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CustomerPhoneBusiness}" Width="75"/>
                    </StackPanel>
                </DataTemplate>
            </ComboBox.ItemTemplate>
        </ComboBox>

I think I figured it out. cboCustomers.SelectedItem actually returns back a DataRowView object which I can then drill down to find the appropriate value.
