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).



Each DevExpress GitHub example is a separate repository. Each repository contains solutions/projects with source code and data files (for desktop, web, or multi-platform solutions/apps).


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 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
