The Unit Conversion API provides you with a set of extension methods for the System.Double data type. It enables you to easily perform conversions between different units of measurement and operate with quantity values (i.e., physical values expressed in units of measurement).

Important

The Universal Subscription or an additional Office File API Subscription is required to use this component or library in production code. Refer to the DevExpress Subscription page for pricing information.
