Property Value

Type Description

A string value that specifies a data source field’s name.


Use the TextFieldName property when you bind the ComboBox to a data source that store custom objects (IEnumerable<CustomType>). This property specifies the name of the data source field that contains text for the ComboBox items.

If the TextFieldName property is not specified, the ComboBox component searches for a Text field in the data source and uses this field as a text field. Otherwise, ComboBox populates its items with the CustomType.ToString() values.

ComboBox CustomObject

@using BlazorApp.Data

<DxComboBox Data="@Staff.DataSource"

@code {
    Person SelectedPerson { get; set; } = Staff.DataSource[0];
