Multi Column ComboBox in C# WPF

For my working purpose I wanna try to make a multiple column Combox Box.So i prepare myself to make this.But i fetched too many problem for this and Finally i have gotten this solution.

At first write this code in XAML file to create MultiColumn ComboBox.

<ComboBox Grid.Column="1" Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="1,0,0,232" Name="cmbWHTypeId" Width="175" TabIndex="0" VerticalAlignment="Bottom">
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding WhtID}" Width="60"/>
                <TextBlock Text="|" Width="10"/>
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding WhtName}" Width="100" />


Then Write the following Code in CS file of  UI

cmbWHTypeId.ItemsSource = objBWhTypes.GetAllWhTypes();

Here GetAllWhTypes() is a method which returns a list collection.

public List<EWareHouseTypes>GetAllWhTypes()
List<EWareHouseTypes> liWhTypes = new List<EWareHouseTypes>();

IEBSDataContext objDataContext = new IEBSDataContext();

var b = from WAREHOUSE_TYPES in objDataContext.SP_WarehouseType_GetAll() select WAREHOUSE_TYPES;
foreach (var item in b)
EWareHouseTypes objEWhTypes = new EWareHouseTypes();
objEWhTypes.WhtID = item.WT_ID;
objEWhTypes.WhtName = item.WT_NAME;
catch (Exception e)

throw e;
return liWhTypes;

EWareHouseTypes is a class and it contains two property id and name.


EWareHouseTypes aWHType = (EWareHouseTypes)cmbWHTypeId.SelectedItem;

Manually SET INDEX for a Particular ID

string typeID="WHT01"

for (int i = 0; i < cmbWHTypeId.Items.Count; i++)
EWareHouseTypes aWHType = (EWareHouseTypes)cmbWHTypeId.Items[i];
if (aWHType.WhtID == typeID)
cmbWHTypeId.SelectedIndex = i;
