Demo Application

The DevExpress .NET Products Installer installs demos for each product. Demos are divided into two types: Sample Applications (real-world applications built using DevExpress products) and Technical Demos (which highlight a product's primary features). These demos provide an overview of each product's features, as well as implementation examples.

DevExpress Office File API demos are in the Reporting, Analytics & More section.

The Office File API demo is divided into Winforms, ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC.

Expanded Launch the Demo Center

There are three ways to run the DevExpress Demo Center:

  • Click the "Demo Center 18.1" shortcut in Windows Start Menu.

  • In Visual Studio, select "DEVEXPRESS | Run Demo Center 18.1.3" in the Visual Studio DevExpress menu.

  • Open the DevExpress product installation folder and run the Demo Center manually. The default path is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 18.1\Components\Components\Bin\DevExpress.DemoCenter.v18.1.exe".

Expanded Find the Source Code

Each demo ships with C# and VB.NET source code (ASP MVC demo ships only in C#), which describes how to solve real-world tasks using DevExpress products. Use one of the following approaches to review the required demo code:

  • In the Demo Center, right-click a demo and select the "Open CS Solution"/"Open VB Solution" menu item.

  • Open the demo solution manually. The default demo source directory is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 18.1\Components\Document Server\.... You can also access this folder by invoking the Windows Start Menu and clicking "All Programs" | "DevExpress 18.1" | "Demo Source Code".
