This article introduces Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Toolbox for Visual Studio, which eases the process of adding Telerik controls to your .NET MAUI application. The .NET MAUI Toolbox is part of the Visual Studio Extensions for Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.
Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Visual Studio Extensions are distributed with the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI MSI installation. You can also download and install them as a separate product from the Visual Studio Marketplace for Visual Studio 2022.
For detailed instructions on how to install the VS Extensions, see Visual Studio Extensions topic.
To show the Toolbox and start using the controls, navigate to the tab "Extensions" -> "Telerik" -> "Telerik UI for .NET MAUI" -> "Open Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Toolbox" within Visual Studio. You can also find this option when you type "Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Toolbox" in the Quick Launch search field (top right corner in Visual Studio).
When you open the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Toolbox, you will see a window with the different controls from the suite.
If no usable controls are present in the toolbox, make sure that you added all the required references, and try to rebuild your project.
Embedding the controls from the suite is made as easy as possible. All you need to do is simply drag one of the controls within your XAML file. This adds the control definition and maps the needed namespace declarations.
