Data Types Supported by built-in Editors

This documentation section includes the following topics, which provide information on data types supported by XAF and corresponding Property Editors, intended to visually represent a property in the UI.

If you need to store a type unsupported by your ORM in the database, refer to the Mapping Complex Types to the Database article.

If there is no built-in property editor for your specific task, you can easily add a custom one. Refer to the Implement Custom Property Editors topic to learn how to implement custom property editors.

Note

To see Property Editors for these types in action, refer to the Property Editors section in the Feature Center demo installed with XAF. By default, the Feature Center demo is installed in %PUBLIC%\Documents\DevExpress Demos 17.1\Components\eXpressApp Framework\FeatureCenter. The ASP.NET version of this demo is available online at http://demos.devexpress.com/XAF/FeatureCenter/.
