Limitations on FamilyMemberComboBox

Jan 2, 2010 at 3:31 PM

Hi All,

I've added 22 items in the FamilyMemberComboBox (yes, I know I'm extending the functionality beyond genealogy) and when I scroll down on the combo box, it stops scrolling down at the 18th item.

Anybody has run into this fix? Anyone has a fix?

That particular combo box is styled using a resource in the Themes\Silver\SilverResources.xaml and the Themes\Black\BlackResources.xaml files.

If you search for the style:

<Style x:Key="FamilyMemberComboBox" TargetType="ComboBox">

and then the property:

MaxHeight="{TemplateBinding MaxDropDownHeight}"

and delete that property, you will be able to see your 22 items.

Hope that helps.
