This article is compatible with the latest version of Silverlight.

Introduction

In this article we are going to explore some of the features of the ComboBox. Also we change the look of the control using a few templates based on the default control templates. You can see all the source code here.

Download source.

ComboBox and ListBox

The ComboBox control is very similar to the ListBox control. It derives from ItemsControl and Selector, it has ItemContainer property but it also has a few additional things that are connected with the drop down items menu. Using the events DropDownClosed, DropDownOpened and IsDropDownOpen(bool) you can keep track of it. MaxDropDownHeight limits the height of the drop down area. IsSelectionBoxHighlighted indicates weather the control has focus and the drop down menu is opened. Except SelectedItems and SelectedIndex ComboBox has SelectionBoxItem and SelectionBoxItemTemplate that give you access to the selected item that is displayed outside the drop down menu.

Making templates for the ComboBox

ComboBox has 5 states and 4 parts. To work properly you need to create a template that has all of them. However, hat's not all. To fully customize the ComboBox you also need to make template for ToggleButton, ComboBoxItem(ContentControl) and ScrollViewer. So there are plenty of templates you need to create. To make things a little simpler we didn't make template for the ScrollViewer as it is not always necessary to place the items in ScrollViewer and is not defined as "TemplatePart" of the ComboBox.

Here is a list of all the states and parts you need to define in XAML to create fully operational templates. We took the library templates and slightly modified them.

    I love how you have to rip apart the whole fucking control template to change the color-style of the combo box. Must be the same genius who hard-coded the white background into the button.

    Seriously guys ? wtf ?
