Dogfooding the ASPxperience

ASP.NET Team Blog
01 August 2007

We use our own controls all over the website. They make the site look smooth and professional without a lot of effort. Our homepage is a great example, let's take a look at where ASPx controls are used on the DevExpress homepage:


1. ASPxMenu - At the top.


This menu is also used through out the site as the main navigation control. (Check out this Screencast that shows how to change the menu to look like the Office 2007 Ribbon control)


2. ASPxHeadline - Part of our ASPxNewsControl


The ASPxHeadline control is fully customizable and can be bound to XML files as well.


3. ASPxNavBar


The ASPxNavBar can display icons in a number of different ways.


4. ASPxRoundPanel - Used for entire middle section


The ASPxRoundPanel can emulate just about any round panel look, even MacOS!


5. ASPxNavBar - Used with collapsible groups


The ASPxNavBar can even be configured to dynamically load each group with a callback.


That's four we use on the homepage, we've got our components all over the site. I'll probably write more on that later but for now you can check out the demos and try them all out.

The ASPx controls get a serious workout on our homepage. It gets the most traffic and the controls never skip a beat.
