There is no difference in how the data is passed to the RibbonComboBox. What you need to do is getting your data from the datasource as you would normally do and set the data using VIewModels.
If you have any issues with data binding the RibbonComboBox, please share a sample runnable project pointing out the issue or some runnable code snippets so I could give you a more concrete suggestion.
