Getting Started

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

1. Setting up the app

Take a look at these articles and follow the instructions to setup your app:

2. Adding the required Telerik references

You have two options:

  • Add the Telerik UI for Xamarin Nuget packages 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 RadBarcode component:

Platform Assemblies
Portable Telerik.XamarinForms.Barcode.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.SkiaSharp.dll
Android Telerik.Xamarin.Android.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Barcode.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.SkiaSharp.dll
iOS Telerik.Xamarin.iOS.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Barcode.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.SkiaSharp.dll
UWP Telerik.Core.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Barcode.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.SkiaSharp.dll

RadBarcode is rendered via the SkiaSharp graphics library so you need to install also SkiaSharp.Views.Forms in all projects of the Xamarin solution (.Net Standard/Shared, Android, iOS, etc).

Example

If your app is setup, you are ready to add a RadBarcode control to your page. In the sample the QRCode symbology is used, for more details on the available Barcode symbologies go to Supported Types topic.

<telerikBarcode:RadBarcode x:Name="barcode" 
                       Value="https://www.telerik.com/xamarin-ui"                               
                       WidthRequest="100" HeightRequest="100">
    <telerikBarcode:RadBarcode.Symbology>
        <telerikBarcode:QRCode SizingMode="Stretch" />
    </telerikBarcode:RadBarcode.Symbology>
</telerikBarcode:RadBarcode>

In addition to this you need to add the following namespace:

xmlns:telerikBarcode="clr-namespace:Telerik.XamarinForms.Barcode;assembly=Telerik.XamarinForms.Barcode"

Here is the result:
