The ASPxHeadline control is available on the DX.23.1: Navigation & Layout toolbox tab in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE.

Drag the control onto a form and customize the control’s settings, or paste the control’s markup in the page’s source code.

<dx:ASPxHeadLine HeaderText="The ExpressQuantumGrid Suite v6 is Now Available" TailText="Details" 
        ID="headLine" runat="server" ContentText="November 17, 2006 - We are happy to announce..." 
        Date="11.17.2006" NavigateUrl="...">

Run Time

using DevExpress.Web;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    ASPxHeadline headLine = new ASPxHeadline();
    headLine.ID = "headLine";

    headLine.HeaderText = "The ExpressQuantumGrid Suite v6 is Now Available";
    headLine.TailText = "Details";
    headLine.ContentText = "November 17, 2006 - We are happy to announce...";
    headLine.NavigateUrl = "...";
    DateTime date = new DateTime(2006, 11, 17); // Year, Month, and Day. 
    headLine.Date = date;


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 ASPxHeadline class provides properties that allow the control’s content, date, header, tail and other elements to be customized.

It’s also possible to display the headline’s header. To do this, specify its text via the ASPxHeadline.HeaderText property.


The ASPxHeadline control doesn’t implement any public client-side API.
