NuGet Packages

In Visual Studio, you can use DevExpress NuGet packages to add DevExpress libraries to your application. DevExpress publishes these packages on a private NuGet web server, to help add and update DevExpress references in your projects.

Refer to the T466415: DevExpress NuGet Packages article for a complete step-by-step guide on how to set up your Visual Studio instance for DevExpress NuGet packages.

Note the following requirements to use DevExpress NuGet packages:

  • The DevExpress NuGet feed is only available to licensed DevExpress customers.
  • You will need to create a new package source for the DevExpress NuGet feed, as detailed in the Managing packages for the solution section.

    NOTE

    Set the feed’s source URL in the following format: "https://nuget.devexpress.com/{your feed authorization key}/api"

    The key is available in the Download Manager page of your DevExpress account.

  • Only certain development platforms, such as ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET Core, WinForms, WPF, are currently available. See the KB article for a complete list.
  • Design-time assemblies are not included.
  • DevExpress controls referenced with NuGet packages are not available from the Toolbox.
