    Quick Start
    In This Topic

    This quick start guides you through the steps of adding the ListView control in your Blazor application, adding data to it and displaying the data in the control. In this example, we create a data source for ListView by creating a list of countries and bind the list to the ListView control to display the names of countries in the control.

    Create a Blazor App

    1. In Visual Studio, select Create a new project from the Get started pane.
    2. In the Create a new project dialog, select Blazor App and click Next.
    3. In the Configure your new project dialog, provide name of the project you want to create in the Project name field and location for the project in the Location field. Click Create.
    4. In the Create a new Blazor app dialog, select Blazor WebAssembly App template and click Create. A new client-side Blazor app is created. Alternatively, you can also create a Blazor server-side app.
      Note: Blazor Server App or server-side app can be created using the Blazor Server App template. For more details, see Blazor Server topic under Blazor Project Types.

    Configure the Data Source

    In the Data folder, add a class, say Country, and add the following code.

    C#
    Copy Code
    public class Country
        {
            public override string ToString()
            {

            }
    
            public string Code { get; set; }
            public string Name { get; set; }
    
            public static List GetCountries()
            {
    
                var assembly = typeof(Country).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;
                var stream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("ListView_List.Data.countries.json");
                var json = new System.IO.StreamReader(stream).ReadToEnd();
                var countries = JsonSerializer.Deserialize>(json);
    
                var listContries = new List();
    
                foreach (var item in countries)
                {
                    listContries.Add(new Country() { Code = item.Key, Name = item.Value.ToString() });
                }
                return listContries.OrderBy(c => c.Name).ToList();
            }
         }
    }

    Bind ListView to Data

    To bind ListView to data, set the ItemsSource property and type of the type parameter T for C1ListView component. Here, the ItemsSource property accepts the collection of items for the ListView control.

    Replace the existing code in the Pages\Index.razor page with the following code. 

    Razor
    Copy Code
    <C1ListView ItemsSource="countries" T="Country" Style="@("max-height:50vh")"></C1ListView>
    @code{
    
        IEnumerable<Country> countries;
    
        protected override void OnInitialized()
        {
            countries = Country.GetCountries();
        }
