Getting Started

This guide provides the information you need to start using the Telerik UI for WinUI DataForm by adding the component to your project.

At the end, you will be able to achieve the following result.

Prerequisites

Before adding the DataForm, 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 DataForm component, add the references to the Telerik.WinUI.Controls.dll assembly.

Define the Component

To start using the DataForm, you need to initialize it and assign its ItemsSource property. The following example shows how to bind the ItemsSource to a collection of custom objects.

Define the Item Model

public class DataInfo 
{ 
    public int Id { get; set; } 
    public string Name { get; set; } 
    public bool IsChecked { get; set; } 
    public DateTime Date { get; set; } 
    public MyEnum EnumValue { get; set; } 
} 
 
public enum MyEnum 
{ 
    ValueA, 
    ValueB 
} 

Define the DataForm in XAML

<telerik:RadDataForm x:Name="dataForm"/> 

Set the ItemsSource of the DataForm

public MainWindow() 
{ 
    this.InitializeComponent(); 
 
    var source = new BindableCollection<DataInfo>(); 
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) 
    { 
        source.Add(new DataInfo() 
        { 
            Id = i, 
            Name = "Item " + i, 
            IsChecked = i % 2 == 0, 
            Date = DateTime.Today.AddDays(i), 
            EnumValue = i % 2 == 0 ? MyEnum.ValueA : MyEnum.ValueB 
        }); 
    } 
    this.dataForm.ItemsSource = source; 
} 

Set the Header of the DataForm

The DataForm component provides a built-in header element that is displayed on top of the data fields. To define the header, set the Header property.

Set the DataForm Header

<telerik:RadDataForm Header="Data Form Header"/>
