    How can I define the DataFormComboBoxField in my own Template?
    Take telerik's code for testing:
                <DataTemplate x:Key="MyTemplate">
                        <telerik:DataFormDataField Label="First Name" DataMemberBinding="{Binding FirstName, Mode=TwoWay}" />
                        <telerik:DataFormDataField Grid.Column="1" Label="Last Name" DataMemberBinding="{Binding LastName, Mode=TwoWay}" />
                        <telerik:DataFormComboBoxField Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" Label="Occupation" Width="140"
                                                       ItemsSource="{Binding OccupationPositions}" />

    The comboBox can't get the itemsSource, need help!

    Hello Vivian,

    You will need to set the 3 properties of the combo box field  - ItemsSource, SelectedValuememberPath and DisplayMemberPath.

    The DataContext of the combo field would be the current item of the RadDataForm .

    The way you are setting ItemsSource - ItemsSource="{Binding OccupationPositions}"  means you expect the OccupationPositions is a property of the current item.

    Can you please check and let me know where is the OccupationPositions property defined ?
    Also if you give me enough details on your data model , I will gladly prepare a small working example for you .

    Kind regards,
    Pavel Pavlov
