  • Compress a stream: RadZipLibrary can significantly facilitate your efforts in compressing a stream, for example to send it over the internet.

  • Support for large files: The Zip Library works seamlessly with large files (over 4GB).

  • Support for encryption: You can protect your ZIP file with password for more security.

Required references

You have two options to add the required Telerik references to your Xamarin.Forms app in order to use RadZipLibrary:

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 RadZipLibrary you have to install the Telerik.Zip nuget package.

  • Add the references to Telerik assemblies manually, check below the required assembly for RadZipLibrary:

    • Telerik.Zip.dll

    Please keep in mind this assembly is located in the Portable folder, still, you need to add a reference to them in the Xamarin.Forms project as well as in each of the platform projects (Android | iOS | UWP).
