Getting Started

This section explains how to create a group of visual symbols used for rating with SfRating control.

Adding SfRating control

Create a Universal Windows Platform project in Visual Studio and refer to the following assemblies.

  • Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP
  • Syncfusion.SfShared.UWP

1.Include the namespace for Syncfusion.SfInput.UWP assembly in MainPage.xaml

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:input="using:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input">

2.Now add the SfRating control with a required optimal name using the included namespace

<input:SfRating x:Name="rating">
SfRating rating = new SfRating();
Dim rating As New SfRating()

NOTE

This will yield a blank output screen unless ItemsCount is set

Set the number of items

Set the ItemsCount property to specify the number of rating items in control.

<input:SfRating ItemsCount="5" x:Name="rating">

<input:SfRating.Resources>

<Style TargetType="input:SfRatingItem">

<Setter Property="Padding" Value="1"/>

<Setter Property="RatedFill" Value="#FF1196CD"/>

<Setter Property="PointerOverFill" Value="#FF86BA35"/>

<Setter Property="Width" Value="35"/>

</Style>

</input:SfRating.Resources>

</input:SfRating>
