Incremental Loading

This topic describes how to enable incremental data loading in RadListView.

To enable incremental loading, you have to use as ItemsSource a collection that implements the ISupportIncrementalLoading interface. You can also take advantage of the IncrementalLoadingCollection which is our default implementation.

The IncrementalLoadingMode property specifies how new items are requested. Two loading modes are supported:

  • Automatic: Scrolling to the end of the control automatically loads more items.
  • Explicit: The user has to explicitly request more items by click/tap on the button.

The RadListView also supports LoadMoreDataCommand that by default is executed to load new data. You can find more information about the list view commands here.


This example demonstrates how to use the incremental loading functionality.

Here is the RadListView XAML declaration:

<telerikDataControls:RadListView x:Name="listView" IncrementalLoadingMode="Explicit" ItemsSource="{Binding Items}">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Text}"/>



This is the view model class:

public class ViewModel
    private int currentCount = 0;

    public ViewModel()
        this.Items = new IncrementalLoadingCollection<Item>(this.GetMoreItems) { BatchSize = 5 };

    public IncrementalLoadingCollection<Item> Items { get; set; }

    private async Task<IEnumerable<Item>> GetMoreItems(uint count)
        await Task.Delay(1000);
        var result = Enumerable.Range(this.currentCount, (int)count).Select(x => new Item { Text = "item " + x }).ToList();
        currentCount += (int)count;
        return result;

public class Item 
    public string Text { get; set; }

Here is the result:
