I would like to propose that we add the WithBehavior(this VisualElement visualElement, Behavior behavior) and WithBehaviors(this VisualElement visualElement, params Behavior[] behaviors) extensions that will add the supplied behavior to visualElement.Behaviors.


Reduces the amount of code developers need to write 😄

Detailed Design

public static class VisualElementExtensions
    public static WithBehavior(this VisualElement visualElement, Behavior behavior)
        return visualElement;

    public static WithBehaviors(this VisualElement visualElement, params Behavior[] behaviors)
        foreach (var behavior in behaviors)

Usage Syntax

    MaxLength = 100
}.WithBehavior(new MaxLengthReachedBehavior().Bind(

Hey team & community,

@brminnick @jfversluis @VladislavAntonyuk @pictos

👍 for yes and 👎 for no

Oh yeah thanks! Closed now 😄
