.NET MAUI Path Getting Started


Before adding the Path, you need to:

  1. Set up your .NET MAUI application.

  2. Download Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

  3. Install Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

The Path 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 Path control to your page. The Path exposes the Geometry property, which you have to assign to a RadPathGeometry object. The RadPathGeometry object consists of different Path figures such as lines and arcs.

For demonstration purposes, let's choose one of the built-in geometries the Path supports, for example, the star pattern, and set it directly to the Geometry property:

<telerik:RadPath x:Name="starPath"
                 Geometry="{x:Static telerik:Geometries.Star}" />

2. Add the following namespaces:


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();
