Configuring the .NET MAUI app

The Syncfusion .NET MAUI Visual Studio Code Snippets utility adds only the code for the controls in the XAML file. So, we need to install the required NuGet packages and add namespaces by following these steps:

  1. Open the .NET MAUI app’s project file and manually add the necessary Syncfusion .NET MAUI individual NuGet package(s) as a package reference for the Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls. We’ve included a commented code sample indicating each component’s corresponding NuGet package entry. Copy and paste the NuGet package entry into your .NET MAUI project file. This NuGet package will be automatically restored during the project’s build or save process.

  2. To integrate Syncfusion controls into your app, go to the XAML file and insert the necessary Syncfusion .NET MAUI namespace entries.

  3. Finally, run the app to see the Syncfusion .NET MAUI control.
