XtraDialog Class

A message box that allows displaying any control (e.g., a UserControl) in its client area.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public static class XtraDialog
Public Module XtraDialog

Remarks

To display a dialog, call the static XtraDialog.Show method. Method parameters allow you to specify a control to be displayed in its client area, provide the dialog's caption and add predefined buttons.

To learn how to customize the dialog's buttons, see the XtraDialog.Show(DevExpress.XtraEditors.XtraDialogArgs) topic.

The following code invokes an XtraDialog displaying a UserControl with custom controls (two TextEdit controls and one CheckEdit control), and the OK and Cancel buttons.
