Hello,

In my WPF application I want to integrate a page indicator, like everybody knows from mobile devices, to browse/slide through e.g. some images or pages/controls and the dots at the bottom indicating the current position.

I saw that Telerik provides something like that for Xamarin (SlideView: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/xamarin/controls/slideview/slideview-overview). 

Is there something similar for WPF I just don't see? Or any suggestion how I can realize this easily (e.g. with bit of restyling of another control)? Or maybe is it possible to host Xamarin control in WPF?

 

Thanks

Hello Philip,

Currently, the Telerik UI for WPF suite doesn't provide SlideView control. The closest that we have is the RadCarousel control. 

Alternatively, you can use several Telerik controls to create a custom SlideView visualization. You can find this approach in the attached project. The project shows a very basic implementation of the UI and part of the functionality. However, some parts doesn't work yet. For example, the buttons below the content are hard-coded and also not functional. Anyway, I hope the project is a good starting point for achieving your requirement.

Note that, at this point, it is not possible to host separate Xamarin controls in a WPF application.

Hello Martin,

thanks for your response.

 

That goes in the direction I had in mind to build such a control. Your example is a good starting point, thanks.

Would be great when Telerik consider to provide such a control in future since in my opinion it is very common to users.

 

Regards

I am glad to hear that the project is useful. As for providing such control in Telerik UI for WPF, I have logged a new feature request in the feedback portal where you can track its status. You can also find your Telerik points updated.
