Hi,

RadComboBox has a property EmptySelectionBoxTemplate which can be used instead of EmptyText. In this DataTemplate you could put a TextBlock with the desired color and text.

Hi Valari

Is there a way to use this template if the RadComboBox is:
  • IsReadOnly="True"
  • IsEditable="True"

the template you suggested only seems to work if the RadComboBox is not editable.

Hello,

When the control is in edit mode the displayed template is a simple TextBox. In order to set a Empty Text to that TextBox all you need to do is set the EmptyText of the control. Setting a more complex DataTemplate when the control is in that mode is not possible since the ComboBox relies on the input text in order to trigger its editable functionalities like the searching functionality.

Hope this is helpful.

Regards,
Vladi
