Examples

This example shows how the Text property can be used to set text into the TextBox before the user makes a selection.

<ComboBox Name="cb" Margin="10,10,3,3" Width="200" Height="30" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="2"         
          ItemsSource="{StaticResource myCities}" Text="My Cities"
          IsEditable="true"  IsReadOnly="true" 
          IsDropDownOpen="True" StaysOpenOnEdit="True">
</ComboBox>

Remarks

When the IsEditable property is true, setting this property places initial text entered in the text box. When IsEditable is false, setting this value has no effect.
