    Seemingly simple question... I have a RadComboBox that I want to display the selected item without the font being bold.

    The template being used:

      <DataTemplate x:Key="SelectionBoxTemplate">
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Code}" FontWeight="Regular"/>

    The radcombobox:

    <telerik:RadComboBox x:Name="RegionComboBox"
                         ItemsSource="{Binding Regions}"
                         SelectedValue="{Binding Region,
                         SelectionBoxTemplate="{StaticResource SelectionBoxTemplate}"/>

    I can change the color of the displayed item, but I cannot get the font weight to be regular. It is always bold.

    Hi Greg,

    I guess you are using Windows8 theme, where the default FontFamily of RadComboBox is Segoe UI Semibold. This FontFamily  doesn't have Normal FontWeight that is why you cannot change it. I suggest you change the FontFamily of RadComboBox or the TextBlock of SelectionBoxTemplate to Segoe UI which is the same font but with Normal FontWeight.

    Hope this helps.
