Showing the Telerik Toolbox

Visual Studio 2019

To show the Toolbox and start using the controls, navigate to the tab "Extensions" -> "Telerik" -> "Telerik UI for Xamarin" -> "Open Telerik UI for Xamarin Toolbox" within Visual Studio. You can also find this option when you type "Telerik UI for Xamarin Toolbox" in the Quick Launch search field (top right corner in Visual Studio).

Figure 1 shows where you can find the option in Visual Studio 2019:

Adding Controls to Your Project

Embedding the controls from the suite is made as easy as possible. All you need to do is simply drag one of the controls within your XAML file. This adds the control definition and maps the needed namespace declarations. Figure 3 shows how to perform this action.
