Cross-Platform Core Libraries

Cross-Platform Core Libraries contain reusable code required by other DevExpress .NET assemblies. This code implements basic functionality for data binding, control skinning, printing, exporting, as well as functionality that is common to specific DevExpress products targeting different platforms (ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, WinForms and WPF). In addition, the eXpress Persistent Objects (XPO) object-relational mapping tool is included.

The following cross-platform assemblies are described in this documentation.
