I already submitted a support ticket, but I just wanted to post here.

If the Template property of a RadComboBoxItem is set, then the DisplayMemberPath property of the RadComboBox will no longer display on each item in the drop down.  The currently selected item will still appear correctly.

The workaround is to explicitly set the ItemTemplate property on the RadComboBox.

Hi Ryan,

As we have replied you in the support ticket for this particular scenario you need to replace the ContentPresenter inside DefaultRadComboBoxItemTemplate with:

<ContentPresenter x:Name="Content" HorizontalAlignment="{TemplateBinding HorizontalContentAlignment}" Margin="{TemplateBinding Padding}"/>

And DisplayMemberPath will work as expected. Or if you want to keep all the bindings inside and have it working correctly you can add the following line to the ContentPresenter setup:

ContentTemplateSelector="{TemplateBinding ContentControl.ContentTemplateSelector}"

Hope this helps.
