May be doing this wrong
but i assume the purpose of exposing the datafield is being able to replace with a more appropiate or complex type
unfortunately it seems to loose its binding and dataannotations (label and description)
Instead i replaced the content member of the existing datafield with a combobox
It there any advantage in replacing the datafield
with the DataFormComboBoxField as opposed to setting the content property
Is it considered better "Form"

Hi David Ocasio,
Both approaches are good. Indeed we allow direct setting/replacing the content for more flexibility. However letting the field to initialize its content generally is better as all neccessary bindings, initialization etc. are done automatically .
