If I have a ribbon combobox, such as:

<ribbon:ComboBox Width="200" Label="Something:" KeyTipAccessText="F1">
<ribbon:ComboBox.Content>
<ComboBox>
<ComboBoxItem>Item 1</ComboBoxItem>
<ComboBoxItem>Item 2</ComboBoxItem>
</ComboBox>
</ribbon:ComboBox.Content>
</ribbon:ComboBox>

Is there a way to set it so the first item in the combo box is selected?

Yes use this line:

<ComboBox SelectedIndex="0">

How about setting a specific item as selected for a PropertyGrid combo box? Thanks!

Hi Maggie,

Please post questions relating to the PropertyGrid in the PropertyGrid (for WPF) Support forum.

To answer your question, the controls in the PropertyGrid are meant to work of an associated property/object. So if you have a property call MyProperty, then the ComboBox would show the current value. You can then provide a list of possible "standard" values to choose from, which can be displayed by the ComboBox. So ultimately, you change the selected item of the ComboBox by changing the associated property.

If you have a specific scenario where you are having problems, please email over a small sample project and we can take a closer look.
