Accessibility in Xamarin Rating (SfRating)

12 Aug 20221 minute to read


The SfRating control has built-in AutomationId for inner elements. The AutomationId API allows the automation framework to find and interact with the inner elements of the SfRating control. To keep unique AutomationId, these inner elements’ AutomationIds are updated based on the control’s AutomationId.

For example, if you set SfRating’s AutomationId as “Feedback” and you select the fourth item, then the automation framework will interact with the SfRating as “Feedback Rating 4”. When the rating is added as custom view, the Automation framework will interact with the element’s AutomationId.


AutomationId support works only when the precision mode of SfRating is set as Standard.
