After trying too many unsuccessful things and wasting WAAAAAAY TOO MUCH TIME on something that should be simple, I have come to the realization that either the functionality I need is not documented, documented well, or doesn't exist. I just want to use a .png file as the image source for a ButtonToolbarItem, but the only samples, items in the docs, or Google imply that it can only be done with a FontImageSource. If this is true, I think this constraint was a very poor decision on Telerik's behalf. What if a font doesn't exist for the image I NEED to display on a button?

Help me with this or admit this was a shortsighted decision...

Thanks, Steve Miller

Hi Steve,

Thank you for all details provided. 

I have noticed you have logged a bug report for the font usage: https://feedback.telerik.com/maui/1605156-errors-are-being-thrown-unable-to-load-font-telerikfont  and mentioned the .png file visualization in the ButtonToolbarItem. 

I have reviewed the documentation and the information needed is described: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/maui/controls/toolbar/items/button#net-maui-button-toolbaritem 

The properties for ButtonToolbarItem configuration are Text and ImageSource. Here is the ImageSource description: 

ImageSource(Microsoft.Maui.Controls.ImageSource)—Specifies the source of the image to display in the toolbar item.

You can use a .png file for the ToolbarItem. I have attached the same project as in my reply to the feedback item. 

Here is the result: 

The available.png is displayed in the button toolbar item. I hope this information and the shared project will be of help. Let me know if you have any additional questions. 

Regards,
Didi
