  • 2 minutes to read

Cross-Platform Core Libraries contain reusable code for other DevExpress .NET assemblies and the eXpress Persistent Objects (XPO) object-relational mapping tool.

Core Libraries Assembly List

eXpress Persistent Objects (XPO)


eXpress Persistent Objects for .NET (or XPO) bridges the gap between relational databases and object oriented software constructs found in custom software. You can use XPO to build applications that are compatible with multiple database systems (MS Access, MS SQL Server, MS SQL Server CE, MS SQL Azure, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSql, Firebird, PervasiveSQL, VistaDB, SQL Anywhere, Advantage, DB2, SQLite, and Sybase).

DevExpress Data Library


The DevExpress Data Library implements basic functionality for data binding, control skinning, printing, exporting, and functionality that is common to DevExpress products that target different platforms (ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, WinForms, and WPF).

DevExpress Drawing Graphics Library


The DevExpress.Drawing Graphics Library contains the basic drawing functionality for DevExpress components. This library ships with the DevExpress primitives, which serve as counterparts for the System.Drawing primitives (Font, Pen, Brush, and so on). The DevExpress.Drawing library allow you to retain all possible functionality when deploying DevExpress-powered apps to non-Windows environments (specifically, apps targeting .NET 7 and deployed to Linux and macOS).

DevExpress Pivot Grid Core Library

Contains classes that implement the basic functionality for WinForms PivotGrid, ASP.NET PivotGrid, and WPF PivotGrid controls.
