Once you've installed, open a new command prompt and run the following command:
Once you've installed, open a new terminal and run the following command:
If the installation succeeded, you should see an output similar to the following:

Got an error?
If you receive a 'dotnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command error, make sure you opened a new command prompt. If you can't resolve the issue, use the I ran into an issue button to get help fixing the problem.
Create your app
In your command prompt, run the following command to create your app:
In your terminal, run the following command to create your app:
dotnet new blazorserver -o BlazorApp --no-https
This command creates your new Blazor app project and places it in a new directory called BlazorApp inside your current location.
Navigate to the new BlazorApp directory created by the previous command:
Take a quick look at the contents of the BlazorApp directory. Several files were created in the BlazorApp directory, to give you a simple Blazor app that is ready to run.
Program.cs is the entry point for the app that starts the server.
Startup.cs is where you configure the app services and middleware.
App.razor is the root component for the app.
The BlazorApp/Pages directory contains some example web pages for the app.
BlazorApp.csproj defines the app project and its dependencies.
Take note of the BlazorApp directory path as you will use it later in the tutorial.
Got an error?
If you receive a message similar to Template "Blazor Server App" could not be created. Access to the path 'C:\Windows\System32\BlazorApp' is denied, change your current directory to one where you have permissions to create a new folder and try to run the command again. If you can't resolve the issue, use the I ran into an issue button to get help fixing the problem.
Run your app
In your command prompt, run the following command:
In your terminal, run the following command:
dotnet watch run
The dotnet watch run command will build and start the app, and then rebuild and restart the app whenever you make code changes. You can stop the app at any time by selecting Ctrl+C.
Wait for the app to display that it's listening on http://localhost:5000 and for the browser to launch at that address.
Once you get to the following page, you have successfully run your first Blazor app!
The displayed page is defined by the Pages/Index.razor file. This is what its contents look like:
@page "/"<h1>Hello, world!</h1>Welcome to your new app.<SurveyPrompt Title="How is Blazor working for you?" />
It already contains the code that sets it as the homepage and displays the text "Hello, world!" and "Welcome to your new app". It also includes a SurveyPrompt component that renders a link to the Blazor feedback survey.
Try the counter
In the running app, navigate to the Counter page by clicking the Counter tab in the sidebar on the left. The following page should then be displayed.
You can find the implementation of the Counter component at Pages/Counter.razor.
A request for /counter in the browser, as specified by the @@page directive at the top, causes the Counter component to render its content.
Each time the Click me button is selected:
The onclick event is fired.
The IncrementCount method is called.
The currentCount is incremented.
The component is rendered to show the updated count.
Add a component
Each of the .razor files defines a UI component that can be reused.
Open the Index.razor file in a text editor of your choice. The Index.razor file already exists and it was created when you ran the dotnet new command. It's located in the Pages folder inside the BlazorApp directory that was created earlier.
Add a Counter component to the app's homepage by adding a <Counter /> element at the end of the Index.razor file.
@page "/"<h1>Hello, world!</h1>Welcome to your new app.<SurveyPrompt Title="How is Blazor working for you?" /><Counter />
Once this change is saved, the dotnet watch run command will restart the app and refresh it in the browser so that the Counter component shows up on the Home page.
Modify a component
Component parameters are specified using attributes or child content, which allow you to set properties on the child component. Define a parameter on the Counter component for specifying how much it increments with every button click:
Add a public property for IncrementAmount with a [Parameter] attribute.
Change the IncrementCount method to use the IncrementAmount when incrementing the value of currentCount.
The following code shows how to achieve that. The highlighted lines show the changes.
In Index.razor, update the <Counter> element to add an IncrementAmount attribute that changes the increment amount to ten as shown by the highlighted line in the following code:
@page "/"<h1>Hello, world!</h1>Welcome to your new app.<SurveyPrompt Title="How is Blazor working for you?" /><Counter IncrementAmount="10" />
The Index component now has its own counter that increments by ten each time the Click me button is selected, as shown in the following image. The Counter component (Counter.razor) at /counter continues to increment by one.
Congratulations, you've built and run your first Blazor app!
Now that you've got the basics, continue building your first Blazor app with Blazor self-guided learning module on Microsoft Learn where you will build a to-do list app.
