Property Value

Type: System.String

The text that identifies the item to the user. The default value is an empty string.

This property specifies the text to displayed when an item is selected, and enables the user to select an item by typing the value of this property. As soon as the user types enough of the value to distinguish the item from other items in the selection, the item will be selected. Use this property on an item in a collection.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


The following example creates a ComboBox that contains images as items instead of text. The IsEditable property is set to true, so text is displayed when one of the images is selected.

<ComboBox IsEditable="true">
  <Image TextSearch.Text="Cat" Source="data\cat.png"/>
  <Image TextSearch.Text="Dog" Source="data\dog.png"/>
  <Image TextSearch.Text="Fish" Source="data\fish.png"/>
