Getting Started

This article will guide you through the steps needed to add a basic RadButton 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:

If you don't want to add the all Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin nuget package, you have the option to add a separate nuget package. For RadButton control you have to install the Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin.Input nuget package. This nuget will automatically refer the Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin.Primitives, Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin.Common, and Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin.DataControls nuget packages.

  • Add the references to Telerik assemblies manually, check the list below with the required assemblies for RadButton component:
Platform Assemblies
Portable Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.DataControls.dll
Android Telerik.Xamarin.Android.Common.dll
Telerik.Xamarin.Android.Data.dll
Telerik.Xamarin.Android.Input.dll
Telerik.Xamarin.Android.List.dll
Telerik.Xamarin.Android.Primitives.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.DataControls.dll
iOS Telerik.Xamarin.iOS.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.DataControls.dll
UWP Telerik.Core.dll
Telerik.Data.dll
Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls.Data.UWP.dll
Telerik.UI.Xaml.Input.UWP.dll
Telerik.UI.Xaml.Primitives.UWP.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.DataControls.dll

3. Adding RadButton control

You could use one of the following approaches:

Drag the control from the Toolbox.

Take a look at the following topics on how to use the toolbox:

Create the control definition in XAML or C#.

The snippet below shows a simple RadButton definition:

<telerikInput:RadButton x:Name="button" 
                        Text="Click me!"  
                        BorderThickness="2" 
                        BorderColor="#4488F6" 
                        Clicked="button_Clicked"/>

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

xmlns:telerikInput="clr-namespace:Telerik.XamarinForms.Input;assembly=Telerik.XamarinForms.Input"
using Telerik.XamarinForms.Input;

Then define the Click event handler:

private void button_Clicked(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   //implement your logic here.
}

Here is the result:

SDK Browser and Telerik Xamarin Samples applications contain different examples that show RadButton's main features. For detailed information on this go to Xamarin Demos Applications topic.
