Follow up to my own post, now that I’ve found the answers.
1) To populate a static list at design time:
Click on ComboBox, and a dropdown saying “(New ComboBoxItem)” appears. Double-click on that to create new Item. Type in value in the “Text” field of the Properties screen.
2) To populate a static list at run time:
Use the Items.Add method of the control, like this:
3) To populate a dynamic (data-bound) list:
You can’t. According to Xceed’s technical support, the ComboBox “control was not designed to be data bound.” As a workaround, you can read the data yourself, then use Items.Add to build the control, something like this (some details on creating a data connection have been left out):
myCmd = New SqlCommand(“SELECT <FieldName> FROM <TableName>”, myConnection)
myReader = myCmd.ExecuteReader
Do While myReader.Read
