Dynamic / Auto DropDownItemHeight ?

I've been wondering, if there is a 'dynamic' variant of the DropDownItemHeight method on SfComboBox ?
I've been trying to show a custom view for a SfComboBox, using Grid and labels in grid's rows and columns, like this:

<Grid Padding="10,5,0,0">
<RowDefinition Height="*"/>
<RowDefinition Height="1"/>
<Label Grid.Column="0" Text="{Binding Name}"/>
<Label Grid.Column="1" Text="{Binding}"/>
<Label Grid.Column="2" Text="{Binding}"/>
<Label Grid.Column="3" Text="{Binding}"/>
<Label Grid.Column="4" Text="{Binding}"/>
<BoxView Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="5" Color="LightGray"/>

I removed the irrelevant binding names, except the one causing problem. When the value bound to a Label's Text is long enough, so the Label breaks the line, the row's height doesn't change, which leads to the text represented by the label to be cut off, dependant on the current DropDownItemHeight setting.

Currently, the solution I worked out is to set the value of DropDownItemHeight manually, but then again, each and every row has that height, instead of automatically shrink it to the contents of that row.
