Chat Items

RadChat works with a collection of ChatItem objects. The control provides different chat items that you could use, such as the basic TextMessage as well as various pickers (itempicker, datapicker, timepicker) and predefined cards (defined through a cardpicker).

Additionally, you could create your own chat items with custom item templates and add them to the Items collection of the control. For more details go to MVVM Support and ItemTemplateSelector topics.

This section covers the specific details of the different chat items RadChat provides:

  • Message - the basic message unit in RadChat;
  • Time Break - used to encapsulate messages in a conversation by a certain condition such as read/unread, time intervals or any other you would choose.
  • PickerItem - special ChatItem type which contains RadChatPicker control used for providing a selection to the end user.
