Included Components

This topic describes the components available from the WPF Data Editors library.

This topic contains the following sections.

Expanded Overview

The WPF Data Editors library contains a set of editors and simple controls that can be used in WPF applications.
Each editor provides a specific functionality that is required for editing data values of a certain type. In the Visual Studio IDE,
all Data Editors and Simple Controls components are available on the DX.18.1.WPF: Common Controls toolbox tab.

WPF Data Editors are designed to be used in the following ways.

  • As a standalone control

    The code sample below demonstrates how to use the BarCodeEdit control to display a bar code.

    The image below demonstrates the result.

  • As an in-place control

    DevExpress WPF data editors can be used for in-place editing within the container control such as GridControl or Bars. To embed a specific editor in a container control, create a BaseEditSettings descendant that corresponds to a specific editor type. This object provides the implementation of all the editor properties that allow the in-place editor to be fully customized. A container control (e.g., GridControl) uses information provided by the EditSettings classes to create fully-functional editors when required.

    The code sample below demonstrates how to display barcodes within the GridControl using the in-place BarCodeEdit editors.

    The image below demonstrates the result.
