    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Based on the code you provided, here is some basic information you need to know. The CbTipocombustibles.Name is just the name of the ComboBox, it is not the value that users selected. You need to get the value from the TextBlock inside the ComboBoxItem. Then you could check that value to decide if you need to hide the TextBox or TextBlock.

    Please try the following code:

     ComboBox CbTipocombustibles = (ComboBox)sender;  
                //get selected comboboxitem  
                ComboBoxItem item = (ComboBoxItem)CbTipocombustibles.SelectedItem;  
                //get textblock inside the comboboxitem  
                TextBlock textblock = (TextBlock)item.Content;  
                //get the value which is selected  
                if (textblock.Text == "textgasolina")  
                    txttanqueel.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;  

    Thank you.
