Populating Items in UWP Radial Menu (SfRadialMenu)

Items Source

Radial menu items can be populated with the business object collection. Let us create a SfRadialMenu which will show the list of Application commands.

The Application command model look likes below.

public class ApplicationCommand

    {

        public string Name { get; set; }



        public string ImagePath { get; set; }



        public ICommand Command { get; set; }

    }
Public Class ApplicationCommand


		Public Property Name() As String



		Public Property ImagePath() As String



		Public Property Command() As ICommand

End Class

Create the Application command collection as follows.

private List<ApplicationCommand> options;

public List<ApplicationCommand> Options

   {

            get { return options; }

            set { options = value; }

   }
Private options_Renamed As List(Of ApplicationCommand)

Public Property Options() As List(Of ApplicationCommand)


			Get
				Return options_Renamed
			End Get

			Set(ByVal value As List(Of ApplicationCommand))
				options_Renamed = value
			End Set

End Property

Populate the Application command collection as follows.

Options = new List<ApplicationCommand>(); 

 Options.Add(new ApplicationCommand() { Name="Bold" , ImagePath="bold.png" });    			  
 
 Options.Add(new ApplicationCommand() { Name = "Cut" , ImagePath="cut.png"}); 

 Options.Add(new ApplicationCommand() { Name = "Copy" ,ImagePath="copy.png"}); 

 Options.Add(new ApplicationCommand() { Name = "Paste" ,ImagePath="paste.png"});
Options = New List(Of ApplicationCommand)()

 Options.Add(New ApplicationCommand() With {
	 .Name="Bold",
	 .ImagePath="bold.png"
 })

 Options.Add(New ApplicationCommand() With {
	 .Name = "Cut",
	 .ImagePath="cut.png"
 })

 Options.Add(New ApplicationCommand() With {
	 .Name = "Copy",
	 .ImagePath="copy.png"
 })

 Options.Add(New ApplicationCommand() With {
	 .Name = "Paste",
	 .ImagePath="paste.png"
 })

Bind the Application command collection to the ItemsSource property of the SfRadialMenu control.

  • xaml
  • <navigation:SfRadialMenu IsOpen="True" ItemsSource="{Binding Options}"/>

    This will populate the SfRadialMenu as shown in the image below.

                <navigation:SfRadialMenu.ItemTemplate>

                        <StackPanel >
    
                            <Image Height="15" Width="15" Source="{Binding ImagePath}"/>
    
                            <TextBlock Margin="0,5,0,0" Text="{Binding Name}"/>
    
                        </StackPanel>
    
                    </DataTemplate>
    
                </navigation:SfRadialMenu.ItemTemplate>
    
       </navigation:SfRadialMenu>
