C# Events (design-time)

The RibbonComboBox has a TextChanged event that is raised when the user changes the text in the edit box and the user exits the edit box by pressing the Enter key or changing the focus.
This event is also raised when the user selects a different value from the dropdown list.
The ItemsLoading event is raised before the dropdown list is displayed and allows you to change the list immediately before it is shown.
