Please excuse me for the misunderstanding. It is hard to tell what is causing the issue only from the screenshot. I've attached a sample project where the RadComboBox shows the selected item when the pop up is opened. Could you check if this is the desired behavior?
If the issue still persists, please send us all RadComboBox XAML modifications which are made. This will be really helpful for tracking down the source of the issue.
