UI Construction

UI construction is a primary step in building a business application. The eXpressApp Framework automatically generates a UI based on your business model and the Application Model. You can use a default UI. At the same time, you are allowed to customize it via an Application Model or in code. At this stage, you should know XAF UI elements and the mechanisms of their creation and interaction. Topics in this section provide detailed information on each UI element.
