DevExpress Code Examples
- 2 minutes to read
Examples that help demonstrate the use of DevExpress UI controls/components (for multiple development platforms) are available on GitHub (DevExpress-Examples).
Product updates may introduce API changes that affect example source code. If an update introduces a breaking change or adds simpler API, we create a new branch in the repository and update the code.
We label all branches to indicate compatible version numbers. Make sure to select the branch that matches your product version.
A repository’s Readme.md file includes the example’s description, lists files to review, and includes links to corresponding help topics/related examples.
Readme files for web-specific examples may include a [Run Online] link. Use this link to execute the example on our web server. For instance, the ASP.NET MVC Dashboard - Custom Properties example is available online at codecentral.devexpress.com.
