I have tried to use Custom Font with a BreadCrumb with the purpose of displaying an home icon for the first Element with the following code.

        MyBreadCrumb.BreadCrumbElement.Items(0).Text = ChrW(&HF015)
        MyBreadCrumb.BreadCrumbElement.Items(0).CustomFont = "Font Awesome 5 Free Solid"

But instead of a nice looking home Glyphs I have an old crossed ballot (see attached picture)

I'm missing something ?

By the way, you should take a look at Font Awesome Example  (in VB.NET) in the following page and correct it. (the ChrW() instead of /uF017, the multiple variable settings instruction in one line).

Thank you for your support

Hello, Marco,

In order to display the glyph, it is necessary to specify the CustomFont for the ActionButton.TextElement

        Me.RadBreadCrumb1.BreadCrumbElement.Items(0).Text = ChrW(&HF015)

        Dim button As RadSplitButtonElement = Me.RadBreadCrumb1.BreadCrumbElement.Items(0)
        button.ActionButton.TextElement.CustomFont = "Font Awesome 5 Free Solid" 

Off topic, thank you for sharing the problem with the VB code symbols in the example. We will update the article accordingly.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
