Getting Started

This example will guide you through the steps needed to add a basic RadCalendar 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 RadCalendar 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 RadCalendar component:
Platform Assemblies
Portable Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.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
iOS Telerik.Xamarin.iOS.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Common.dll
Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.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

3. Adding RadCalendar 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 RadCalendar definition:

<telerikInput:RadCalendar x:Name="calendar"/>
var calendar = new RadCalendar();

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;

RadCalendar control requires its visual parent to provide vertical or horizontal space for the control to fill into. Please avoid placing the control inside ScrollView as the calendar control has its own scrolling.

Here is the result:

Basic RadCalendar Example

SDK Browser and QSF applications contain different examples that show RadCalendar's main features. You can find the applications in the Examples and QSF folders of your local Telerik UI for Xamarin installation.
