Barcode Getting Started


Before adding the Barcode, you need to:

  2. Download Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

  3. Install Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

The Barcode is rendered through the SkiaSharp graphics library.

Define the Control

1. When your .NET MAUI application is set up, you are ready to add a Barcode control to your page. The following example uses the QR Code symbology. For more details on the available Barcode symbologies, refer to the articles on the supported 1D and 2D Barcode types.

<telerik:RadBarcode x:Name="barcode"
        <telerik:QRCode SizingMode="Stretch" />

2. Add the telerik namespace:


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();
            .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
                fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");

        return builder.Build();
