Smart Tags

DevExpress WPF components are integrated into Visual Studio. It means that along with the standard Visual Studio design-time capabilities, DevExpress components provide additional features like drag&drop of visual elements inside a control, extended context menus, etc.

In addition, there are several extensions that simplify working with the Visual Studio Designer, in general, and building UI using MVVM.

Note

The Smart Tag extension in Visual Studio 2010 works for DevExpress WPF Controls only.
