Template Gallery

The DevExpress Template Gallery provides predefined project templates to create projects with DevExpress ASP.NET AJAX controls (or ASP.NET MVC extensions). Note that some templates run the Project Wizard, which allows you to customize project settings prior to generating it.

In Visual Studio, click New Project, enter the project name, specify the folder location and click OK to launch the DevExpress Template Gallery. The following figure illustrates this dialog and its elements.

  • Platform Selector - allows you to choose the required application platform (WinForms, WPF, or ASP.NET).
  • Language Selector - allows you to choose between Visual C# and Visual Basic.
  • Template Categories - enumerates all template groups available for the selected platform, version and language. Templates are grouped by purpose or application UI type.
  • Search Box - allows you to search for specific templates by title.

Once you have chosen the required application options, click the desired template. If a Project Wizard is available for the template, the Run Wizard button is displayed. Otherwise, the Create Project button is displayed.

The tables below list available DevExpress ASP.NET project templates.
