Using Icons

Grial uses Fontawesome icons 4.3.0

Since they are made from vectors they will render properly across different devices with different pixel densities. In other words, they will look sharp wherever you display them.

Since they are made from vectors they will render properly across different devices with different pixel densities. In other words, they will look sharp wherever you display them.

To use your desired icon, just follow this procedure:

  1. Go to Fontawesome icons
  2. Type the name of the icon you are looking for in the text input and click on the suggested icon that matches your search. You will be redirected to the icon’s page.
  3. Copy the unicode value of that icon (something like f004)
  4. If you are using the icon on a .XAML file, you should use it as “” + UNICODE + “;”
  5. If you are using the icon on a .CS file, you should use it as “\u” + UNICODE

Important: Icons can ONLY be used on controls.
