Getting Help on API

You can get help with certain DevExpress Windows Forms controls/components or any of their properties using the F1 shortcut in the Visual Studio Designer and in code.

In the Visual Studio Designer, select a control/component in the Toolbox or within a form, and then press F1 to open an online documentation topic with the class description.

You can also select a control's property or event in the Properties grid and then press F1 to open an online documentation page describing this member. The F1 shortcut is supported in the standard Properties window and in the Properties grids integrated in control Designers.

Online documentation pages can also be opened from the Visual Studio code editor (once the full path to the DevExpress control or its member is resolved).
