Hi, I have a ComboBox in WPF with two ComboBoxItem.

I want to get a different value from each ComboBoxItem that's different from 'Content' property.

In HTML, it's like :
<select name="test" id="test">
    <option value="valueReturned1">Choice number one displayed</option>
    <option value="valueReturned2">Choice number two displayed</option>
My XAML is :
<ComboBox x:Name="cbStat">
    <ComboBoxItem Content="item one displayed"></ComboBoxItem>
    <ComboBoxItem Content="item two displayed"></ComboBoxItem>

What I have to do for put a 'value' in my ComboBoxItems that i can will get when i select an item ? (like in HTML i get the 'value' property.

I have search for a 'value' property in the ComboBoxItem but not found Frown | :(

Thanks by advance for help.

SelectedIndex? What kind of a "value" are you looking for?

It's exactly what I search. The fact that we obtain the index of the item and not a custom value bothered me; but for a list defined in XAML, it will go.

Well, after a little headache... this solution looks good for me.

<combobox x:name="nameSelectionTypeStat" height="24" xmlns:x="#unknown">
          VerticalAlignment="Center" MinWidth="75">
CodeBehind :
private void nameValiderTypeStat_Click_1(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (nameSelectionTypeStat.SelectedIndex == 0)
        MessageBox.Show("Choice 1");
    else if (nameSelectionTypeStat.SelectedIndex == 1)
        MessageBox.Show("Choice 2");
