.NET MAUI ListPicker Commands

This article describes the commands available in the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI ListPicker control.

ListPicker Commands

List Picker for .NET MAUI exposes the following commands you can use to programmatically manipulate displaying the popup as well as clearing the selected item:

  • ToggleCommand(ICommand)—Allows you to show/hide the popup used for selecting an item from a list of items.
  • ClearCommand(ICommand)—Allows you to clear the displayed item.

OK and Cancel Buttons

Through the popup or the drop-down, users can pick an item. This must be confirmed or rejected with the OK or Cancel buttons located in the popup or drop-down.

The ListPicker allows you to add a custom logic for the Accept and Cancel commands which are executed when the OK or Cancel buttons are clicked.

  • AcceptCommand(ICommand)—Defines the command, which confirms the current selection of the picker and closes the popup or drop-down. Use AcceptCommandParameter to pass a parameter to the command execute method.
  • CancelCommand(ICommand)—Defines the command, which rejects the current selection of the picker and closes the popup or drop-down. Use CancelCommandParameter to pass a parameter to the command execute method.

You can apply the Accept and Cancel commands for the popup mode by setting the PopupSettings property of the ListPicker. For the drop-down mode, use the DropDownSettings property.


The example shows how to define the commands in the PopupSettings. The same is valid for the DropDownSettings.

1. Define the ListPicker:

    <Button Text="Toggle Command" Command="{Binding Source={x:Reference listPicker}, Path=ToggleCommand}"/>
    <Button Text="Clear Command" Command="{Binding Source={x:Reference listPicker}, Path=ClearCommand}"/>
    <telerik:RadListPicker Placeholder="Pick a name!"
                           ItemsSource="{Binding Items}"
            <telerik:PickerPopupSettings AcceptCommand="{Binding Accept}"
                                         CancelCommand="{Binding Cancel}" />

2. Set the sample ViewModel:

public class ViewModel
    public ViewModel()
        this.Items = new ObservableCollection<Person>()
            new Person("Freda","Curtis"),
            new Person("Jeffery","Francis"),
            new Person("Ema","Lawson"),
            new Person("Niki","Samaniego"),
            new Person("Jenny","Santos"),
            new Person("Eric","Wheeler"),
            new Person("Emmett","Fuller"),
            new Person("Brian","Johnas"),

        this.Accept = new Command(this.OnAccept);
        this.Accept = new Command(this.OnCancel);

    private void OnAccept(object obj)
        // implement your custom logic here

    private void OnCancel(object obj)
        // implement your custom logic here

    public ObservableCollection<Person> Items { get; set; }
    public ICommand Accept { get; set; }
    public ICommand Cancel { get; set; }

3. Add the Business model:

public class Person
    public Person(string name, string lastName)
        this.Name = name;
        this.LastName = lastName;

    public string Name { get; set; }

    public string LastName { get; set; }

    public string FullName
            return $"{this.Name} {this.LastName}";

4. Add the following namespace:
