    Hi, I'm trying to change the DisplayMemberPath triggered by IsDropDownOpen, but the displayed value does not change. I tried to change the background of the combobox just to verify that the trigger works, and the background is changed accordingly to the IsDropDownOpen state. Am I doing this wrong, do you have another solution?

                            <Style TargetType="telerik:RadComboBox">
                                    <Trigger Property="IsDropDownOpen" Value="False">
                                        <Setter Property="DisplayMemberPath" Value="Value1" />
                                        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Blue"/>
                                    <Trigger Property="IsDropDownOpen" Value="True">
                                        <Setter Property="DisplayMemberPath" Value="Value2" />
                                        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Yellow"/>

    Telerik version: 2013.3.1316.40

    Hi Arnstein,

    Could you explain why it's needed to change the DisplayMemberPath property at runtime? I would suggest using the SelectionBoxTemplate property of RadComboBox to display a different information when item is selected. Please, refer to the attached project and let me know if this helps.
