Demo Applications

In addition to all products shipped with the DevExpress .NET Products Installer, the setup program also installs a set of corresponding demos for each product. These demos provide an overview of all the features available in each DevExpress product, as well as implementation examples. Demos for all controls and components are gathered into the Demo Center application.

Expanded Launch the Demo Center

There are three ways to run the DevExpress Demo Center.

  • Click the "Demo Center 17.1" shortcut in Windows Start Menu. The shortcut is located in the "All Programs | DevExpress 17.1" folder.

  • In Visual Studio, select the "DEVEXPRESS | Run Demo Center 17.1.6" menu entry.

  • Open the DevExpress products installation folder and run the Demo Center manually. The default path is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 17.1\Components\Components\Bin\DevExpress.DemoCenter.v17.1.exe".

Expanded Find the Source Code

Each demo ships with source code (in C# and VB.NET), which is useful for learning how to solve real-world tasks with DevExpress products. Use one of the following approaches to review the required demo code.

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

  • Individual demo modules for desktop platforms (e.g., the WinForms Data Grid control demo) run in separate windows. Buttons at top of these windows allow you to open this demo module as a Visual Studio solution.

  • Open the required demo solution manually. The default demo source directory is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 17.1\Components\.... To quickly access this folder, invoke the Windows Start Menu and click "All Programs" | "DevExpress 17.1" | "Demo Source Code".
