Iconize Plugin for Xamarin Forms

Use icon fonts in your Xamarin.Forms application!

Icon Fonts

Font Requests
If you have an icon font or series of svg pictograms you'd like included, just submit an issue or pull request and we'll work to add it.

In case you can't find the icon you want, you can extend the available icon directly from your app. All you need to do is to implement IIconModule with a .ttf file in your assets/resources and provide the mapping between keys and special characters, then give it to Iconize.With().

There are no constraints on the icon keys, but I strongly suggest you use a unique prefix like my- or anything, to avoid conflicts with other modules. FYI, if there is a conflict, the first module declared with Iconize.With() has priority.



  • IconButton (Button)
  • IconImage (Image)

    • Requires IconNavigationPage
