DiagramControl.UseDirectXPaint Property

Gets or sets whether to use the DirectX rendering.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraDiagram

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraDiagram.v21.2.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(DefaultBoolean.Default)]
[DXCategory("Appearance")]
public DefaultBoolean UseDirectXPaint { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
DefaultBoolean

Default

A DefaultBoolean enumerator value that specifies whether this control employs the DirectX Hardware Acceleration. The DefaultBoolean.Default value is equivalent to DefaultBoolean.True if the static WindowsFormsSettings.ForceDirectXPaint method was called, or to DefaultBoolean.False otherwise.

Available values:

Name Description
True

Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.

False

Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.

Default

The default behavior determined by the control’s logic.

Remarks

DirectX hardware acceleration is enabled for the DiagramControl automatically if you call the WindowsFormsSettings.ForceDirectXPaint method at the application’s startup or have DirectX enabled in the DevExpress Project Settings window. Use the UseDirectXPaint property to override this behavior.

Note

Only modify the UseDirectXPaint setting before the control’s handle is created. For instance, you can do this at design time, or in the form’s constructor.
