Window(XafApplication, TemplateContext, ICollection<Controller>, Boolean, Boolean) Constructor

Creates an instance of the Window class.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v23.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.ExpressApp


public Window(
    XafApplication application,
    TemplateContext context,
    ICollection<Controller> controllers,
    bool isMain,
    bool activateControllersImmediately


Name Type Description
application XafApplication

An XafApplication object that provides methods and properties to manage the current application. This value is assigned to the Frame.Application property.

context TemplateContext

A TemplateContext object representing the created Window’s context. This value is assigned to the Frame.Context property.

controllers ICollection<Controller>

A ICollection<Controller> Controllers collection.

isMain Boolean

true if the created Window is main; otherwise, false. This value is assigned to the Window.IsMain property.

activateControllersImmediately Boolean

true if Controllers are created immediately after the Window has been created and before the Window’s Window.Template is created; false if Controllers are created after the Window’s Window.Template has been created.


The constructor is used to create and initialize a new Window. The Controllers passed via the controllers parameter are registered within the created Window (see the Frame.RegisterController method description).

This method is not designed to be used directly from your code. The currently set View Strategy creates Windows automatically via the XafApplication.CreateWindow method. For instance, when the main Window is created, the default Show View Strategy activates Window Controllers after the Window’s Template is created. For the remaining Windows, Window Controllers are activated before creating the Template.
