Getting Started

This article will guide you through the steps needed to add a basic RadAutoCompleteView control in your application.

1. Setting up the app

Take a look at the Getting Started article how to setup the Telerik Blazor Mobile Bindings for Xamarin project.

2. Adding the required Telerik references

You have two options:

  • Add the Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin.Blazor Nuget package following the instructions in Telerik NuGet package server topic.

  • Add the references to Telerik assemblies manually, check the list below with the required assemblies for RadAutoCompleteView component:

Platform Assemblies
Portable Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.Input.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll
Android Telerik.Xamarin.Android.Input.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll
iOS Telerik.Xamarin.iOS.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll

After that we need to add the Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.Input in our _Imports.razor page:

@using Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.Input;

3. Adding RadAutoCompleteView control

<ContentView>
    <StackLayout>
            <RadAutoCompleteView ItemsSource="@AcvItemSource"
                                 Watermark="Search here..." />
    </StackLayout>
</ContentView>

@code
{
    public List<string> AcvItemSource { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        base.OnInitialized();

        this.AcvItemSource = new List<string>()
        {
            "Freda Curtis",
            "Jeffery Francis",
            "Eva Lawson",
            "Emmett Santos",
            "Theresa Bryan",
            "Jenny Fuller",
            "Terrell Norris",
            "Eric Wheeler",
            "Julius Clayton",
            "Alfredo Thornton",
            "Roberto Romero",
            "Orlando Mathis",
            "Eduardo Thomas",
            "Harry Douglas"
        };
    }
}

Here is the result:
