Getting Started

Important

This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

Lessons in this section allow you to get started quickly with the DevExpress Grid component. These examples provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to create a Xamarin.Forms cross platform application for the Android and iOS mobile operating systems using the GridControl and demonstrate the control's basic functionality.

To replicate the current tutorial, you need the OS X operating system, as well as Xamarin Studio and Xcode installed. For details on requirements, see An Introduction to Xamarin.Forms.

This tutorial consists of the following lessons.

Once you perform all of these steps, you will get the same application as the Getting Started sample (the HelloGrid application) shipped with the DevExpress Grid component.
