Public Property ApplyItemTemplateToSelectedItem As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description

true to apply the item template to the selected item; otherwise, false.


There are two properties that allow you to change the visual presentation of the selected item (displayed within the edit box) and items displayed within the dropdown list. These are the BaseEdit.EditTemplate and LookUpEditSettingsBase.ItemTemplate properties, respectively. In some instances (e.g. creating an image combobox), it is required to use one template to present the selected item and items displayed within the dropdown list. To do this, set the ApplyItemTemplateToSelectedItem property to true.

The item template is applied only if the combobox's ButtonEdit.IsTextEditable property is set to false.
