Getting Started

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

Before you proceed, please, take a look at these articles and follow the instructions to set up your app:

Required Telerik Assemblies

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

The path of the assemblies is relative to the Binaries folder that is located in the installation folder of the controls. The default location is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik UI for Xamarin RX XXX\Binaries.

All binaries built for a specific platform are placed in a folder named after that platform.

Example

Once your application is correctly set, you are ready to add a RadEntry control to the page:

<telerikInput:RadEntry x:Name="entry" WatermarkText="Enter first name"/>

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;

Here is the result:
