Binding to Silverlight ComboBox and Using SelectedValue, SelectedValuePath and DisplayMemberPath

In this post John Papa explains how to bind a ComboBox to a collection of objects, and then bind a property from the selected object to some other scalar property.

The key here are the DisplayMemberPath and SelectedValuePath properties. These apply to the object that each item in the ComboBox is bound to. In other words, these properties are set to the State, not the ObservableCollection<State>. Also, notice these properties are not data bound, they are instead set to the name of the properties respectively. We do not want the values of the properties here, we want the actual name of the properties (which is why it is called DisplayMemberPath and SelectedValuePath).
