SfComboBox have no any template

Please help me as I need to use SfComboBox instead of standard one. But when I'm adding SfComboBox to my XAML (no matter entering manually in XAML or drag'n'dropping from the Toolbox), the SfComboBox is without any view or template. It only shows the black arrow button but not anything else, no border... nothing. And only after the touch it is showing some UI. I attached the screenshot and you can see the standard ComboBox and next SfComboBox. I tried to do this in a clean project, but the result is same. Also in the Syncfusion WinRT sample browser it working correctly. I really don't know what I have missed.

I am facing the same problem of the initial thread. In my case the page's background is white making SfComboBox's drop down button invisible.
Is it possible to change the template of SfComboBox to suit my needs ? It's curious because the Samples solution is not showing this problem, but
unfortunately I couldn't figure out how the SfCombox it's being templated in this specific case.

Attached a small test application that shows the problem.

Appreciate any help,
Marcos Hass Wakamatsu
