UserControl represents a "view" in Avalonia, which is a reusable collection of controls in a
UserControl usually consists of two parts: a XAML file (e.g.
MyUserControl.axaml) and a
codebehind file (e.g.
MyUserControl.axaml.cs). The codebehind 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:
- Right click the folder in Solution Explorer that you'd like to add the control to
- Select the
Add -> New Itemmenu item
- In the dialog that appears, navigate to the "Avalonia" section in the category tree
- Select "UserControl (Avalonia)"
- Enter your control name under "Name"
- Click the "Add" button
.NET Core CLI
Run this command replacing
[namespace] with the namespace you'd like to create the
UserControl in and
[name] with the name of the control.
dotnet new avalonia.usercontrol -na [namespace] -n [name]
For more information see the .NET core templates repository.
