Server-side Programming Overview

Overview of the Server-side APIs you can use to create and configure the Telerik WebForms Avatar Control.

Creating an Avatar in the Markup

To create an Avatar in the markup, add the Avatar element to the page and set its properties accordingly. You can find the properties in the following article:


<telerik:RadAvatar runat="server" Type="Text" Size="Large" Text="JS" Border="true" FillMode="Outline"  ThemeColor="Success"  />

Creating an Avatar dynamically

To create the Avatar on the server, create a new instance of the RadAvatar object, set its properties and add it to the Controls collection of another control (e.g. PlaceHolder1). You can find the properties and enums in the following articles:


<asp:PlaceHolder ID="PlaceHolder1" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>
protected void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e)
    RadAvatar avatar = new RadAvatar() {
        Type = Telerik.Web.UI.AvatarType.Text,
        Size = AvatarSize.Large,
        Text = "JS",
        Border = true,
        FillMode = AvatarFillMode.Outline,
        ThemeColor = AvatarThemeColor.Success
Protected Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim avatar As RadAvatar = New RadAvatar() With {
        .Type = Telerik.Web.UI.AvatarType.Text,
        .Size = AvatarSize.Large,
        .Text = "JS",
        .Border = True,
        .FillMode = AvatarFillMode.Outline,
        .ThemeColor = AvatarThemeColor.Success
End Sub

Creating controls programmatically must be done in an early event such as PreInit (preferably), Init. For more details you can check out the ASP.NET Page Life-Cycle Events
