SimpleAction Class

Represents a Simple Action.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Actions

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v18.2.dll


[ToolboxTabName("DX.18.2: XAF Actions")]
public class SimpleAction :
<ToolboxTabName("DX.18.2: XAF Actions")>
Public Class SimpleAction
    Inherits ActionBase


The SimpleAction class inherits the basic functionality of Actions from the ActionBase class. Built-in Action Containers display Simple Actions via a button. Simple Actions are used to execute custom code when an end-user clicks this button. For this purpose, the SimpleAction.Execute event is designed.

To add a Simple Action to a Controller, drag and drop the SimpleAction item from the XAF Actions section on the Toolbox to the required Controller's Designer area (see Add a Simple Action). Alternatively, you can use the ActionAttribute to convert a business class' method to an Action (see How to: Create an Action Using the Action Attribute).

Generally, you do not need to create SimpleAction objects manually. All Actions are created together with their Controllers in each Window and Frame.
