        Title="MainWindow" Height="450" Width="650">
    <Grid>

        <dxlc:DataLayoutControl 
            CurrentItem="{Binding}" 
            AutoGenerateItems="False" 
            HorizontalAlignment="Left" 
            Width="250">
            <dxlc:DataLayoutControl.Resources>
                <DataTemplate x:Key="errorTemplate" >
                    <Image Source="{dx:DXImage 'Images/XAF/State_Validation_Warning.png'}"/>
                </DataTemplate>
                <Style TargetType="dxe:TextEdit">
                    <Setter 
                        Property="ValidationErrorTemplate" 
                        Value="{StaticResource errorTemplate}"/>
                </Style>
            </dxlc:DataLayoutControl.Resources>
            <dxlc:DataLayoutItem Label="User ID">
                <dxe:TextEdit EditValue="{Binding UserID, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged, ValidatesOnDataErrors=True}"/>
            </dxlc:DataLayoutItem>
            <dxlc:DataLayoutItem Label="Name">
                <dxe:TextEdit EditValue="{Binding Name, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged, ValidatesOnDataErrors=True}" />
            </dxlc:DataLayoutItem>
        </dxlc:DataLayoutControl>
    </Grid>
</Window>
