    If I specify a "IsSelected" in the XAML of defining a ComboBox, on initial load it fires the SelectionChanged event. The event also fires everytime I add an item to the ComboBox programmatically (even without setting the selection).

    How do you determine if the SelectionChanged event was fired by a user making a "true" selection versus when initially loaded or items added/removed?

    Hello Dennis,

    This behavior is by design. You can check Microsoft SL and WPF Comboboxes and you will see that they have the same behavior. However there is an easy way to workaround this. You have to register the event in the code. You can check this forum thread.

    All the best,
