This tutorial will walk you through the common task of populating RadRating with RadRatingItems declaratively.

Example 1 demonstrates a regular RadRating declaration, where telerik points to: <xmlns:telerik="" />

Example 1: Declare a RadRating

<telerik:RadRating x:Name="radRating" />

In order to add rating items you need to use the RadRating's Items property. The Items property is an ItemCollection which contains your RadRatingItems. Example 2 shows how to add RadRatingItems to your RadRating.

Example 2: Adding RadRatingItems

<telerik:RadRating x:Name="radRating"> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="1" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="2" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="3" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="4" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="5" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="6" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="7" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="8" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="9" /> 
    <telerik:RadRatingItem Content="10" />
