    I've searched the forums as well as the documentation but I couldn't get what I wanted. What I'm after is having something similar to this but using the Telerik Gridview control instead. I could get things going a bit as shown in the attachment. However, I did it by binding the gridview to the data because when I try to also bind the data to the combobox I get an error at runtime telling me "{"Items collection must be empty before using ItemsSource."}".

    Is what I'm trying to achieve even possible currently? If so how?

    You can find the blog post on the following link:

    However you can also check the following example from our XAML SDK Repository, that demonstrates another approach to implement a GridView inside of the drop down of the ComboBox:

    Hope this helps.
