Hello experts,
I am new to WPF and working on populating a combo box with information from a class. I have looked at some examples on the web but can't seem to get it to work properly. What I'm trying to do is populate the the items from a class I have set up. I have figured out how to bind the text boxes from the datacontent of the window. But how to bind the items of the combo box to a class. I am using VB.net for the code behind.
Thank you,
John

combobox binding in wpf is tricky cause it works only if you bind to a property and the only property combobox has is Length.
so you wanna use ComboBoxItemString class which has property ValueString to bind to.
check here for example and description:
