UserControlrepresents a "view" in Avalonia, which is a reusable collection of controls in a predefined layout.
UserControlusually consists of two parts: a XAML file (e.g.
MyUserControl.axaml) and a code-behind file (e.g.
MyUserControl.axaml.cs). The code-behind defines a .NET class which represents the control.
UserControls are often paired with "view models" when using the MVVM pattern. For more information see the tutorial.
You can create
UserControls from templates:
- 1.Right click the folder in Solution Explorer that you'd like to add the control to
- 2.Select the
Add -> New Itemmenu item
- 3.In the dialog that appears, navigate to the "Avalonia" section in the category tree
- 4.Select "UserControl (Avalonia)"
- 5.Enter your control name under "Name"
- 6.Click the "Add" button
Run this command replacing
[namespace]with the namespace you'd like to create the
[name]with the name of the control.
dotnet new avalonia.usercontrol -p:n [namespace] -n [name]
