.NET MAUI Chat ItemPicker

The RadChatPicker control provides an ItemPickerContext that enables you to display a list of options the end user can choose from.

ItemPickerContext exposes the following properties that allow you to show a list of possible options to the user:

  • ItemsSource—Defines the data source used to generate the content of the ItemPicker control;
  • SelectionMode—Defines whether users are allowed to select one or many items out of the provided ItemsSource;
  • SelectedItems—Defines the currently selected items;
  • SelectedItem—Defines the last selected item;

The following example shows how to use the ItemPicker

ItemPickerContext context = new ItemPickerContext
    ItemsSource = new List<string>() { "2 days", "5 days", "7 days", "Another period" }
PickerItem pickerItem = new PickerItem { Context = context, HeaderText = "Select an item" };

context.PropertyChanged += (s, e) =>
    if (e.PropertyName == "SelectedItem")
        if (context.SelectedItem != null)
            chat.Items.Add(new TextMessage { Author = chat.Author, Text = "" + context.SelectedItem });
