Demo Application

  • 2 minutes to read

The DevExpress .NET Products Installer installs demos for each product. Demos are divided into two types: Sample Applications (real-world applications built using DevExpress products) and Technical Demos (which highlight a product's primary features). These demos provide an overview of each product's features, as well as implementation examples.

DevExpress Office File API demos are in the Reporting, Analytics & More section.


The Office File API demo is divided into WinForms, ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC.


Launch the Demo Center

There are three ways to run the DevExpress Demo Center:

  • Click the "Demo Center 18.2" shortcut in Windows Start Menu.
  • In Visual Studio, select "DEVEXPRESS | Run Demo Center 18.2.4" in the Visual Studio DevExpress menu.
  • Open the DevExpress product installation folder and run the Demo Center manually. The default path is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 18.2\Components\Components\Bin\DevExpress.DemoCenter.v18.2.exe".

Find the Source Code

Each demo ships with C# and VB.NET source code (ASP MVC demo ships only in C#), which describes how to solve real-world tasks using DevExpress products. Use one of the following approaches to review the required demo code:

  • Click C# Solution | VB Solution for a desired platform to inspect the source code of its demo modules (see the image above).
  • Open the demo solution manually. The default demo source directory is C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 18.2\Components\Office File API\.... You can also access this folder by invoking the Windows Start Menu and clicking "All Programs" | "DevExpress 18.2" | "Demo Source Code".

Online Demos

You can also launch ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC demos from the Office File API Website Page. Click Online Demos to open the Office File API Demos section.
