Switch Reference and Methods

The Switch is a generic component and its type comes from the model field it is bound to - it is either bool or bool? (a null value is treated as false). Add a reference to the component instance to use the Switch methods.

Method Description
FocusAsync programmatically focuses the Switch.
@* Use the Switch reference to programmatically focus the component *@

<TelerikButton OnClick="@FocusSwitch">Focus Switch</TelerikButton>

<TelerikSwitch @bind-Value="@toggleSwitch" @ref="@SwitchRef" />

@code {
    bool toggleSwitch { get; set; } // the type of this field determines the type of the reference
    TelerikSwitch<bool> SwitchRef { get; set; }

    void FocusSwitch()
