Hi

I have created a combobox and along with that I have created a datatemplate. In the code behind I am binding the combobox with a datatable. But I am not getting the datatable.


Please check the code section.


What is going wrong.

You can not use Display Member and Itemtemplate at the same time.
Just remove the displaymember setting and change the DataTemplate like following:

<Window x:Class="Stadion.cbDt"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        Title="cbDt" Height="300" Width="300">
    <Grid>
        <Grid.Resources>
            <DataTemplate x:Key="ComboBoxDataTemplate">
                <Grid>
                    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                        <ColumnDefinition Width="0.2*"></ColumnDefinition>
                        <ColumnDefinition Width="0.8*"></ColumnDefinition>
                    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                    <CheckBox Grid.Column="0" Width="10" Height="10"></CheckBox>
                    <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Text="{Binding Drug}"></TextBlock>
                </Grid>
            </DataTemplate>
        </Grid.Resources>
        <ComboBox x:Name="Test" ItemsSource="{Binding}"                   
                  SelectedValuePath="ID"
                  Width="100" Height="20" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ComboBoxDataTemplate}">
        </ComboBox>
    </Grid>
</Window>
