Insert DevExpress MVC Extension Wizard

The Insert Extension Wizard allows you to easily add fully functional MVC extensions to your projects, with minimal coding.

The dialog can be invoked by selecting DEVEXPRESS | ASP.NET Controls v17.1 | Insert DevExpress MVC Extension… in the main menu of Visual Studio, or by right-clicking the design area of a view to invoke the context menu. Note that in either approach, a view must be focused in order to invoke this dialog.

In the Insert DevExpress Extension dialog, select and customize the required extension and click Insert.

The wizard automatically generates the View code for the extension and inserts it into the View at the cursor position.

If the selected MVC Extension functions via callbacks, the wizard can add all the necessary actions and helpers to your Controller and Partial Views to your project. To see all the changes made by the Insert Extension Wizard, go to the Output window in Visual Studio and select the output from DevExpress extension integrator.

The selected output lists entries describing the changes made to your project. You can double-click any of the entries and Visual Studio will open the changed (or added) file and focus the position where the new code was inserted.
