        new CardViewColumn {FieldName = "PostalCode", VisibleIndex = 4},

DevExpress controls require that you register special modules, handlers, and options in the Web.config file. You can change this file or switch to the Design tab in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE to automatically update the Web.config file. Note that this information is automatically registered if you use the DevExpress Template Gallery to create a project.


The ASPxCardView control stores its columns within the ASPxCardView.Columns collection. Data columns can be automatically created for each field in the data source when the ASPxCardView is rendered, or created manually. This is controlled by the ASPxCardView.AutoGenerateColumns property.

By default, this property is set to true. This forces the ASPxCardView to render each field from the data source as a data column. The order of columns is the same as the order of fields in the data source. To manually control which columns are to appear in the ASPxCardView, set the ASPxCardView.AutoGenerateColumns property to false. In this case, you should manually add data columns to the ASPxCardView.Columns collection.

Client-Side API

The ASPxCardView control provides you with a comprehensive client-side functionality implemented using JavaScript code.

The client-side API is always available for this control.
