ASPxDiagram.ClientInstanceName Property

Specifies the ASPxDiagram‘s programmatic identifier on the client.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.ASPxDiagram

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.ASPxDiagram.v23.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public string ClientInstanceName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

The control’s client identifier.


Use the ClientInstanceName property to specify a unique client-side identifier for the ASPxDiagram control. Use this identifier on the client side to access the ASPxClientDiagram object in code.


    var diagramData;
    function SaveDiagramData(s, e) {
        diagramData = diagram.Export();
    function LoadDiagramData(s, e) {

<dx:ASPxDiagram ID="ASPxDiagram1" runat="server" ClientInstanceName="diagram" />

<dx:ASPxButton ID="btnSave" runat="server" Text="Save" AutoPostBack="False" ClientSideEvents-Click="SaveDiagramData" />
<dx:ASPxButton ID="btnLoad" runat="server" Text="Load" AutoPostBack="False" ClientSideEvents-Click="LoadDiagramData" />

If the ClientInstanceName property is not specified for a control, the control’s client identifier is generated automatically and equals the value of the control’s ID property. In this case, client-side access to the control is not allowed when the control is in a naming container, for instance, within an ASPxPageControl‘s page or an ASPxPopupControl‘s window.
