This looks liek a useful tool.

One other tool I think would be very useful would be some way of scanning the app for devexpress dependencies and including them in a folder that we can then upload to the web.

Uploading these files individually can be a real pain every time DX do an update.

Great! That should save me a lot of time!!

Mehul, maybe you can explain why there are themes that only cover a few controls. Some seem nice, but aren't complete enough to consider using. My only complaint about Aqua is that the round panels need a little color. The feed back I got from users was that the page looked washed out due to all of the white. And I'm not about to go messing around with the CSS.

John, I don't know if this will help but I generally go into the References and set the copy local option to true and it gets copied over when I publish.

Thanks John,

We'll discuss the idea. I also recommend creating a suggestion in the support center:

Thanks Christopher,

I'll look into the themes question. And thanks for the Aqua theme feedback, I'll pass it onto our design team.

I was under the impression there was already a request for all the themes to cover the full set of controls. Maybe I'm wrong but I certainly would like that. There not exactly a requirement but neither are win forms skins, end users like these touches though.

Hello Ashish,

You can change it using the ASPxGridView.Images.LoadingPanel property. You can also customize this element's style via the ASPxGridView.Styles.LoadingPanel.
