Accordion Getting Started

Prerequisites

Before adding the Accordion, you need to:

  1. Set up your .NET MAUI application.

  2. Download Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

  3. Install Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

Define the Control

When your .NET MAUI application is set up, you are ready to add a Accordion control to your page.

1. Here is the Accordion definition in XAML and C#:

<telerik:RadAccordion x:Name="accordion">
    <telerik:AccordionItem HeaderText="Attachments">
        <telerik:AccordionItem.Content>
            <Label Text="Attach files"  Margin="30" />
        </telerik:AccordionItem.Content>
    </telerik:AccordionItem>
    <telerik:AccordionItem HeaderText="Comments">
        <telerik:AccordionItem.Content>
            <Label Text="Add your comment here" Margin="30" />
        </telerik:AccordionItem.Content>
    </telerik:AccordionItem>
    <telerik:AccordionItem HeaderText="Rating" IsExpanded="True">
        <telerik:AccordionItem.Content>
            <telerik:RadShapeRating x:Name="rating" Margin="20"/>
        </telerik:AccordionItem.Content>
    </telerik:AccordionItem>
</telerik:RadAccordion>

RadAccordion provides a read only collection Items of type IList<AccordionItem>.

**2.** Add the `telerik` namespace:
xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2022/xaml/maui"

3. Register the Telerik controls through the Telerik.Maui.Controls.Compatibility.UseTelerik extension method called inside the CreateMauiApp method of the MauiProgram.cs file of your project:

using Telerik.Maui.Controls.Compatibility;

public static class MauiProgram
{
    public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
    {
        var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();
        builder
            .UseTelerik()
            .UseMauiApp<App>()
            .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
            {
                fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
            });

        return builder.Build();
    }
}
