    Hello,
    I have a RadComboBox declared in xaml:
    <input:RadComboBox x:Name="FontFamilyCombo" Width="128" Margin="2,2,1,3"     MouseLeftButtonDown="FontFamilyCombo_MouseLeftButtonDown" SelectionChanged="FontFamilyCombo_SelectionChanged" MouseEnter="FontFamilyCombo_MouseEnter" MouseLeave="FontFamilyCombo_MouseLeave" /> 
     
    It is initialized in C#:
    TextBlock[] family = new TextBlock[4];  
    family[0] = new TextBlock { FontFamily = new FontFamily(TextAttributes.arrFontNames[0]), Text = TextAttributes.arrFontNames[0] };  
    family[1] = new TextBlock { FontFamily = new FontFamily(TextAttributes.arrFontNames[1]), Text = TextAttributes.arrFontNames[1] };  
    family[2] = new TextBlock { FontFamily = new FontFamily(TextAttributes.arrFontNames[2]), Text = TextAttributes.arrFontNames[2] };  
    family[3] = new TextBlock { FontFamily = new FontFamily(TextAttributes.arrFontNames[3]), Text = "Default" };  
     
    foreach (TextBlock s in family)  
    {  
        FontFamilyCombo.Items.Add(s);  
    }  
    FontFamilyCombo.SelectedIndex = 1;  
    FontFamilyCombo.SelectedItem = family[1];  
     
    At runtime, no item is selected in the combo box.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks.

    Hi Charles,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It seems that there is a problem selecting an item defined like TextBlock from the ComboBox like you described. We will continue to investigate the issue. Meanwhile, I can suggest using the TextBlock as a ItemTemplate of the ComboBox.
    Please find the attached project for reference.

    If you have further questions please feel free to contact us again.

    Best wishes,
