I created a customer propertyeditor that incorporates a combobox.

The combobox isn't styled quite the same way as the default combobox that you autogen.

For example I am using metrodark and my combobox sticks out because it is lighter than everything else whereas yours belnds in.

What style can I apply?

Hi Jack,

If you have a custom Style for it, you could have your style be based on ours by putting this in the Style.BasedOn attribute:

{StaticResource {x:Static themes:SharedResourceKeys.ComboBoxStyleKey}}

Or if you don't have a custom Style, you could just set that directly to the ComboBox.Style property.  Or a third option would be to enable native control themes via our Themes system (see documentation for how).

Hi Jack,

For the ComboBox controls in our default property editors, we don't use a custom style.  Most just are defined like this:

<ComboBox x:Name="comboBox" Margin="0" Padding="0"
  HorizontalContentAlignment="Left" VerticalContentAlignment="Center" BorderThickness="0"
  Background="Transparent" IsEditable="true">
