Before adding the Badge, you need to:

  1. Set up your WinUI project.

  2. Create your Telerik UI for WinUI application and install the Telerik UI for WinUI components depending on the required installation approach:

Add the Assembly References

To use the RadBusyIndicator component, add a reference to the Telerik.WinUI.Controls.dll assembly.

Define the Component

The following example demonstrates how to define the BusyIndicator component. You can access the BusyIndicator through the xmlns:primitives="using:Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives" alias that points to the Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives namespace.

To show and hide the animated indicator, set the IsActive property of the control.

To display an additional content element next to the indicator, set the ContentPosition and Content properties.

Note that the BusyIndicator is displayed on the UI thread and if the thread is blocked, the control will not be shown. It is intended that the user is informed about a long-running background process.

Define the BusyIndicator

<primitives:RadBusyIndicator x:Name="radBusyIndicator" IsActive="True" ContentPosition="Right" Content="Custom text"/>   
The following image shows the end result.
