Controls

Getting Started

Let’s review the steps needed to get started with the Telerik UI for Xamarin controls in a Mobile Blazor Bindings project.

1. Setting up the project.

Let's begin with a new Xamarin Mobile Blazor project. Visit the Getting Started article in the Microsoft documentation. Now, we can start adding our Telerik Controls.

For a faster quick-start, visit Walkthrough: Creating your First App.

2. Adding the required Telerik references

You have two options:

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

  • Add the references to Telerik assemblies manually. Each control's Getting Started article contains a section which describes the needed Telerik assemblies.

No matter whether the Telerik UI for Xamarin Blazor assemblies are added manually or using the Telerik NuGet server, they the references need to be added in the _Imports.razor page:

for example:

@using Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.Primitives
@using Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.Input
@using Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.Common
@using Telerik.XamarinForms.Blazor.DataControls

RadBusyIndicator is rendered via the SkiaSharp graphics library so you need to install , RadDataGrid is renderer for Android via the SkiaSharp graphics library, so you need to install also SkiaSharp.Views.Forms in the .NET Standard and Android projects.
