.NET MAUI TabView Getting Started


Before adding the TabView, 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 your .NET MAUI application is set up, you are ready to add a TabView control to your page.

  • To display content in the tab, you can define TabViewItem elements in its Items collection.

  • To define the header of a TabViewItem use its HeaderText property as in the example.

<telerik:RadTabView x:Name="tabView" AutomationId="tabView">
    <telerik:TabViewItem HeaderText="Home">
        <Label Margin="10" Text="This is the content of the Home tab" />
    <telerik:TabViewItem HeaderText="Folder">
        <Label Margin="10" Text="This is the content of the Folder tab" />
    <telerik:TabViewItem HeaderText="View">
        <Label Margin="10" Text="This is the content of the View tab" />

2. Add the following 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();
