Hi all.

I am trying to change wpf combo box style in order to add ellipsis to the combo in case of long selected item the combo show me ellipsis. so using expression bland 4 i did change the control template and i did found a content presenter in order to show the selected item. for applying ellipsis i did change the content presenter to Label and in the label template i did use texblock. but it did not work then i did bound the textblock to content presenter content.Description with is displaymemberpath of combo. the problem is i did write statically content.description maybe in other case the display member path be Name or Age or any things. do any one have an idea to meet this requiremet.this is the xaml code:
combo style:
<Style x:Key="ComboBoxStyle1" TargetType="{x:Type ComboBox}">

<Canvas HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="0">


<Label ContentTemplate="{TemplateBinding SelectionBoxItemTemplate}" ContentTemplateSelector="{TemplateBinding ItemTemplateSelector}"
Content="{TemplateBinding SelectionBoxItem}" ContentStringFormat="{TemplateBinding SelectionBoxItemStringFormat}"
HorizontalAlignment="{TemplateBinding HorizontalContentAlignment}" IsHitTestVisible="false" Margin="{TemplateBinding Padding}"
SnapsToDevicePixels="{TemplateBinding SnapsToDevicePixels}" VerticalAlignment="{TemplateBinding VerticalContentAlignment}"
Style="{DynamicResource LabelEllipsis}"/>



<Style x:Key="LabelEllipsis" TargetType="{x:Type Label}">
