XAML Namespaces

This document defines XML namespaces and describes how to use them in XAML (that is why it is also correct to call them XAML namespaces). In this topic you can also find a list of all XAML namespaces, defined for DevExpress WPF controls, as well as the usual namespaces mapped to them.

Expanded Using XAML Namespaces

In general, XAML namespaces provide the same functionality as the usual namespaces, but can be used in XAML. These namespaces provide the capability to refer to certain types in different name scopes, using namespace names. Note that each XAML namespace can be mapped to one or more ordinary namespace.

Usually when you drop any DevExpress control onto the Window in the Visual Studio designer, a reference to the corresponding XAML namespace is automatically added to the top of the Window's XAML file. For example, after you drop a GridControl, the following reference will be added.

Here, the dxg namespace prefix is used to identify an XAML namespace containing the GridControl class and other classes that are intended to be used with GridControl (e.g. GridColumn). Thus, after a namespace reference has been added, you will be able to reference types from this namespace using the dxg: prefix as follows.
