Project Settings Page

The DevExpress Project Settings page allows you to set up project-wide settings like the default control font or the DevExpress skin. To invoke this page, right-click a project in Visual Studio's Solution Explorer window and select “DevExpress Project Settings”. If you invoke the Project Setting dialog for a project that has no DevExpress libraries referenced, the corresponding notification appears. Click the "Convert" button to add four core DevExpress libraries: Data, Utils, XtraBars, and XtraEditors.

Important

  • If you utilize the Project Settings dialog, avoid setting other project-wide settings elsewhere. Otherwise, settings stored in the automatically generated app.config file can conflict with your custom settings.
  • If your application uses standard forms instead of DevExpress forms, settings from the app.config file are not loaded automatically. You need to call the WindowsFormsSettings.LoadApplicationSettings method to apply these settings.
