How do I update a RibbonComboBox in a WPF Application?

Hi

I am creating a WPF Ribbon Application with Visual Basic .NET.

On the Ribbon, I have created a RibbonComboBox.  I have also created a collection (in code) of items and set that as my ItemSource for the RibbonComboBox at run-time.  This works fine and the items show up in the RibbonComboBox.

However, how do I get the RibbonComboBox to display the item I select from the list?  When I drop the box down and select something, it does not update to display the selected item - the field just stays empty.  I tried setting the Text property but this does not seem to work.  How do you get the RibbonComboBox to display the selected item?

Thanks

Hi Vyyk,

since there's been no answer to your question yet, I thought I'd share my "experience" with the Microsoft's WPF Ribbon. A word of warning though: I'm definitely no expert on WPF and I just played around a bit with the Ribbon earlier this year out of curiosity.
I remember that I adding a RibbonGallery and a RibbonGalleryCategory to the RibbonComboBox did the trick for me (see the sample at the end of the MSDN entry on the RibbonBox class here).
I don't know if that's the only or the best way to do it, but it's the only one I know of.

I hope that points you at least in the right direction.

Hi Frank,

Brilliant - it took me quite a while to figure out how to do this at run-time but that article helped a great deal nonetheless.  Many thanks!  My hero :)

All the best
