DevExpress DXperience Universal Edition review May 24, 2014Posted by fofo in devexpress.
I am a Microsoft Trainer and a former ASP.Net MVP and I am using Visual Studio to build .Net and more
specifically ASP.Net applications.
Ι have build several ASP.Net applications using the ASP.Net & MVC DevExpress controls & libraries.
I have been using the DevExpress DXperience Universal Edition.
This is an edition,a subscription package that is available from DevExpress and has all the components
and libraries. There other packages like Enterprise, WinForms, WPF,Silverlight and ASP.NET.
The Universal edition includes DevExtreme, their mobile development framework for Visual Studio. It
also includes CodeRush, the eXpressApp Framework and the Business Intelligence Dashboard.
From the ASP.Net MVC controls & features I really liked the Application Themes.
This is an easy and handy way to personalize the look and feel of the web application.
Naturally I use the Data Grid for ASP.NET MVC control. It allows me to provide my clients with very nice user experience at a very fast speed.
It supports great out of the box functionality like master-detail and advanced lookup.
The ribbon control is another control I use often and has been a great addition to categorize
The reporting possibilities are endless and I can create master-detail reports very easily along with
side by side reports.
I have been using DevExpress MVC extensions to build various applications.Recently I have built an ASP.Net MVC application that monitors the working days/hours/leaves of the staff of a particular organisation that is also connected with a access control system(card readers).
Some of the controls I used in this application include:
3) MVCxGridView, Exporter, Calendar Control
4) MVCxGridView, MVCxTreeview
These are some screenshots of my application.
I have also written about DevExpess controls in my other development blog (http://weblogs.asp.net/dotnetstories)
Ιn this post I am demonstrating how to bind an XPODataSource control to an ASPxGridView control.
Ιn this post I am demonstrating how to use client-side events that can make the user experience of your web application for the end user much better by avoiding unnecessary page flickering and postbacks.
Ιn this post I am demonstrating how to bind data from an ArrayList object to the ASPxGridView control.
Ιn this post I am demonstrating how to implement Master-Detail functionality using the ASPxGridView control.
Ιn this post I am demonstrating how to use the ASPxGridView and its great features that include sorting,grouping,filtering,summaries.
In conclusion DevExpress Universal subscription allows developers to continue creating high
performance windows and web applications.
I have been able to develop great web experiences for my clients very quickly and efficiently.
