    My name is Dejan and I'm new in Telerik/Silverlight environment, but not in programming. 

    We just start new project, Silverlight app development using Telerik Silverlight Controls and I have really annoying problem with combo box. (maybe it's not big deal but I'm stacked).

    Platform is: VS2010 + Silverlight4 + Telerik RadControls for Silverlight Q3 2010 SP1 + MSSQL 2008 

    Scenario is next:

    I have Entity with two fields: ID and Code. As you can see in code below I populate only "Code" field inside ComboBox List.
    It is Entity with more then 5000 and growing items and I'm using VirtualizingStackPanel because.

    I want to select "Code" as my choice inside ComboBox(IsEditable="True") but when I choose some "Code" value from the list only thing I'm getting in SelectionBox is "table name:ID" as SelectedItem, but if I change ComboBox(IsEditable="False") SelectionBox show me a "Code" I choose from the list.
    In both cases (IsEditable = True or False), SelectedValue and SelectedItem have same value = "TableName : ID" but different result is shown in SelectionBox:

    If  "IsEditable=True"  then SelectionBox = "TableName:ID
    If "IsEditable=False" then SelectionBox = "Code"

    And my ComboBox MUST be editable.
    Why is that so and how to resolve this issue?

    Best regards


    My code is:
    <Grid Height="57" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="369,43,0,0" Name="gridSC" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="420" DataContext="{Binding ElementName=supplier_codeDomainDataSource, Path=Data}">
                <telerik:RadComboBox  ItemsSource="{Binding ElementName=supplier_codeDomainDataSource,Path=Data}" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="91,22,0,0" Name="cBoxSupplierCode" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="250" IsEditable="True" SelectionChanged="cBoxSupplierCode_SelectionChanged" Text="{Binding Code}">
                            <VirtualizingStackPanel Width="300"/>
                            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                               <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="{Binding Code}"/>
                <riaControls:DomainDataSource AutoLoad="True" d:DesignData="{d:DesignInstance my1:View_Supplier_Code, CreateList=true}" Height="0" LoadedData="supplier_codeDomainDataSource_LoadedData" Name="supplier_codeDomainDataSource" QueryName="GetView_Supplier_CodeQuery" Width="0">
                        <my:ViewSupplier_codeDomainContext />
