Web Application Project Templates

With the installation, we provide specific project templates ('DXperience ASP.NET MVC Web Application') that are available both for C# and VB.NET, as well as all supported ASP.NET MVC versions. They help you to easily start with MVC application development using DevExpress Extensions for ASP.NET MVC. Certain templates run the Project Wizard, allowing you to customize project settings before creation.

These project templates work much like the standard ASP.NET MVC Web Application template available in Visual Studio 2010/20012/2013 - but go further by delivering a simple web application that is ready to use our collection of ASP.NET MVC extensions. The generated project contains all the necessary web project files, assembly references, and code entries you'd normally add to new MVC projects. Now there's no need to manually modify your project.

The tables below list the DevExpress project templates available for ASP.NET MVC.

Project Template Description
Empty Web Application An empty ASP.NET MVC web application ready for use with DevExpress ASP.NET MVC extensions.
Web Application An ASP.NET MVC web application to be configured by the DevExpress ASP.NET Project Wizard and powered by DevExpress ASP.NET MVC extensions.
Responsive Web Application An ASP.NET MVC web application with responsive design to be configured by the DevExpress ASP.NET Project Wizard and powered by DevExpress ASP.NET MVC extensions.
Bootstrapped Web Application An ASP.NET MVC web application to be configured by the DevExpress ASP.NET Project Wizard and powered by a combination of DevExrpress ASP.NET MVC extensions and Bootstrap framework elements (CSS templates and UI components).

For a complete list of the shipped DevExpress project templates, refer to the Template Gallery topic.

Note
