A sample of what a standard rating control looks like

Control description

The rating control lets users rate something by clicking an icon that represents a rating. It can display three types of ratings; an average rating, a tentative rating, and the user's rating.

Note  The rating control is available only in HTML. There is no XAML rating control.

Usage guidance

Use the rating control to show the degree to which users like, appreciate, or are satisfied with an item or service. For example, use the rating control to let users rate a movie. Don't use it for other types of data that have a continuous range, such as screen brightness. (Use a slider for that.)
