If you need to store a type unsupported by your ORM in the database, refer to the Mapping Complex Types to the Database article.

If there is no built-in property editor for your specific task, you can easily add a custom one. Refer to the Implement Custom Property Editors topic to learn how to implement custom property editors.


To see Property Editors for these types in action, refer to the Property Editors section in the Feature Center demo installed with XAF. The default location of the application is %PUBLIC%\Documents\DevExpress Demos 24.1\Components\XAF\FeatureCenter.NETFramework.XPO.
