Thanks for writing back.
In general, in these cases adding a specialized property is not a good idea. The better approach is to modify the template by applying a new style that contains the required setters or modifying the control's tempate (as you already did).
We can consider exposing a GroupPickerStyle
property which allows for directly setting a style for the popup though.
