WinApplication Class

Manages a WinForms XAF application.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Win

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


public class WinApplication :


The WinApplication class is the platform-specific descendant of the XafApplication class. In the WinForms application project, this class is inherited (see WinApplication.cs or WinApplication.vb file). The descendant is instantiated in the Program.Main method (see Program.cs or Program.vb file). You can access the class’ members to perform customizations before the XafApplication.Setup and WinApplication.Start methods are invoked.

Since the WinApplication object can be useful at many points in your code, it must be easily accessed. The following properties, cast to the WinApplication type, provide access to the current WinForms application: ActionBase.Application, Controller.Application, Frame.Application, CustomizePopupWindowParamsEventArgs.Application, CreateCustomTemplateEventArgs.Application, ModuleBase.Application, etc.
