Design time

Radzen’s UI is divided in a few so called screens - specific UI that allows to do various development tasks.

New application

New application

This is the first screen that you will see when you install Radzen. It allows you to create applications in Radzen.

  1. First you need to pick the target framework - Blazor or Angular.
  2. Then you can choose a theme (you can change that later).
  3. Enter the application name.
  4. Finally choose a local directory where that application will live.

Design application

Design application

This is the screen you will spend the most time in while developing your application. It allows you to do the following:

  • Add and edit pages

  • Run the application

A lot more info is available in the Design application help article.

My Applications
