Use Demo Applications

The DevExpress .NET Products Installer installs demos for each product. DevExpress Reporting demos are in the Demo Center application.

Expanded Launch the Demo Center

There are three ways to run the DevExpress Demo Center:

  • Click the "Demo Center 18.2" shortcut in the Windows Start Menu.
  • In Visual Studio, select "DEVEXPRESS | Run Demo Center 18.2" in the Visual Studio DevExpress menu.
  • Open the DevExpress product installation folder and run the Demo Center manually. The default path is "C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 18.2\Components\Components\Bin\DevExpress.DemoCenter.v18.2.exe".

Expanded Find the Source Code

Each demo ships with source code (in C# and VB.NET). Use one of the following approaches to review the demo code:

  • In the Demo Center, right-click a demo and select "Open CS Solution"/"Open VB Solution".
  • Desktop platforms' demo modules run in separate windows. Buttons at the top of these windows allow you to open a certain demo module as a Visual Studio solution.
  • Open the demo solution manually. The default demo source directory is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 18.2\Components.... To access this folder, invoke the Windows Start Menu and click "All Programs" | "DevExpress 18.2" | "Demo Source Code".
