    I'm trying to change the names of the shapes I show inside the image editor tool but I can not get my head arround it how to do it.

    I want to change the text of the shape rectangle and ellipse.

    How to approach this problem?

    Best regards.

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for the provided images.

    The shapes of the ShapeTool does not provide out of the box way to change its name in the combo box. What I can suggest you to workaround this is to create a custom class which derives from the desired shapes and specifies a custom property.
    public class MyEllipse : EllipseShape
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public MyEllipse()
            Name = "Custom Name";

    Then you can extract and modify the template of the ShapeToolSettings element. In the template you can navigate to a RadComboBox element with x:Name PART_ShapeComboBox and change the DisplayMemberPath property.

    I have created a sample project which demonstrates this behavior. Before running the project set your image path in code behind.
