.NET MAUI ToggleButton Content Configuration

The purpose of this help article is to show you the main configuration options of the control.

Setting Content

Define the content inside the ToggleButton by setting the Content property (object) or ContentTemplate (DataTemplate) property.

The Content is responsible for the actual content displayed in the button. It can be set to string, View, complex object, etc.

Here are the scenarios for the visualization of Content or ContentTemplate inside the RadToggleButton:

  • If ContentTemplate is set, the View returned from the ContentTemplate.CreateView() is displayed inside the RadToggleButton.ControlTemplate, having Content as its BindingContext.

  • If ContentTemplate is DataTemplateSelector, first the DataTemplate is selected and then a View is created from the chosen template using Content as its BindingContext.

  • If Content is set to a View and ContentTemplate isn't set, the View is displayed inside the RadToggleButton.ControlTemplate.

  • If Content is set to a string and ContentTemplate isn't set, a Label is displayed inside the RadToggleButton.ControlTemplate.

  • If Content is set to an object and ContentTemplate isn't set, the ToString() of the object is used and converted to Label inside the RadToggleButton.ControlTemplate.

Setting Content to String
