The GetStyleSheets method is used to attach the necessary stylesheet files of the desired DevExpress theme. This method should be called within the HEAD tag of view pages (in most cases, it's reasonable to call it in the Site.Master or Layout page).


Attach all required style sheets within one GetStyleSheets method call.

Every extension suite has its own set of required style sheets. Their optimization in performed inside the GetStyleSheets method. If you call the method several times, it can cause the style sheet duplication and as a result an incorrect control appearance, for example, missing SVG icons.


The GetStyleSheets method is analogous to the ExtensionsFactory.RenderStyleSheets method and is oriented for use in MVC Razor projects. The GetStyleSheets just renders style sheets to the response and returns an empty string for consistency with Razor syntax.

The following code attaches DevExpress stylesheets to provide the default appearance for DevExpress extensions.

        new StyleSheet { ExtensionSuite = ExtensionSuite.NavigationAndLayout }, 
        new StyleSheet { ExtensionSuite = ExtensionSuite.Editors }, 
        new StyleSheet { ExtensionSuite = ExtensionSuite.HtmlEditor }, 
        new StyleSheet { ExtensionSuite = ExtensionSuite.GridView }, 
        new StyleSheet { ExtensionSuite = ExtensionSuite.Chart },
        new StyleSheet { ExtensionSuite = ExtensionSuite.Report }
