Before adding the Button, 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

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

<telerik:RadButton x:Name="button" 
                   Text="Click me!"  

2. Add the telerik namespace:


3. Then define the Click event handler:

private void button_Clicked(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    if (count == 1)
        label1.Text = $"Clicked {count} time";
        label1.Text = $"Clicked {count} times";

4. 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();
