Default selection for WPF RibbonComboBox

Aug 24, 2009 at 4:38 PM

I cannot find any way to have a default selection for the WPF RibbonComboBox.  No matter how hard I try to databind it to other objects, fill in the Text property at initialization, or do other tricks, the RibbonComboBox is always empty until I actually physically move my mouse to select an object from the combo box, and even then the resulting selection only shows up as being selected in the UI if I specifically set the Text field of the combo box to be equal to the Content of the RibbonComboBoxItem that was selected.

Any tips, tricks, or fixes?  I can post code if need be.
