Main Features

DevExpress Data Editors provide the following benefits, making it much easier to implement a fully-functional and easy-to-use data editing form:

  • A wide range of controls.

    There are already over 20 available controls and there are more to come. The large number of controls at your disposal ensures that you can find the one that provides the best experience for end-users.

    Please refer to the Included Components topic for the list of currently available editors.

  • Client-side adaptability.

    To reduce the risk of error, and make it easier for end-users to enter data, you may need to dynamically change content in data editors. You may need to filter values in list boxes or populate combo boxes with different values depending on other controls. To provide a superior user interface, these operations should be done on the client. And, as opposed to standard controls, we fully support this functionality.

  • Built-in validation mechanism.

    Although our controls fully support standard Validator controls, they also have built-in validation functionality. We recommend using the latter option. In this instance, you will be able to combine several data validation conditions in a single control. And, you won't be concerned about aligning the validator control - we provide two built-in error indication solutions including error frames and error icons. To see our validation mechanisms in action, please try our Inplace Validation, Validation Summary and Grid Validation demos.

  • SharePoint Support.

    You can enhance your SharePoint solutions by using the powerful functionality of the DevExpress controls. To see how to integrate our controls into a SharePoint project, please browse the SharePoint Controls Demo Site and the following knowledge base articles : How to integrate a DevExpress web control into a SharePoint page and Replacing a SharePoint master page's default Quick Launch menu with the ASPxNavBar).
