Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Web.v18.2.dll


public static bool EnableGroupUpperCase { get; set; }
Public Shared Property EnableGroupUpperCase As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description

true, if the upper case is enabled for layout group captions; otherwise, false.


By default, in XAF ASP.NET applications, the upper case is enabled for layout group captions. The following code snippet demonstrates how to disable it.

protected void Session_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e) {
    WebApplicationStyleManager.EnableGroupUpperCase = false;

This property has effect when used before the application main page is shown. You can access it in the Session_Start method located in the Global.asax file, after the WebApplication.SwitchToNewStyle method is called.

The result is demonstrated in the image below.



You can also disable the upper case for the grid column, layout group and navigation group captions at once, using the WebApplicationStyleManager.EnableUpperCase property.
