    Leverage Your .NET Skills & Tools

    I've heard from several enterprises that they want to have a mobile tablet experience without:

    1. Losing their existing investment in ASP.NET.

    2. Trying to find new talented resources to create native app experiences.

    3. Or retraining their developers for a specific app platform (iOS, Android, etc.)

    With the new DevExpress file template, you can have a functional iPad website in minutes. In fact, we've added fake data in the file template to help you get started by showing you how to data bind the controls.

    iOS Guidelines & CSS Styles

    Apple has specific guidelines for building and styling apps for their platform. When creating this template, we adhere to follow the Apple iOS guidelines so that you can get started fast. And because this is an ASP.NET project, you can simply upload and deploy it to your IIS web server and then view it from an iPad device.

    We've even added specific styles for Portrait and Landscape modes so you'll have the ability to show different views based on device orientation.

    New iOS Theme

    This new tablet file project template uses the new DevExpress iOS theme. 

    ASP.NET iOS Theme

    In our continuing effort to address your business needs, we have introduced a new iOS-like application-wide theme. Although this theme does not fully emulate iOS element appearance, it is designed and optimized for touch interfaces. We have modified the size of tap-able UI elements to fit the average size of a fingertip, thus making them fingertip-size control elements.

  • DevExpress SharePoint Case Study: Using DXv2 ASP.NET in SharePoint with Mark Hazleton

    Check out this short 9 minute SharePoint 2010 video case study with Mark Hazleton. Mark is a SharePoint developer who shows you how he has leveraged several of the DevExpress ASP.NET products for a stunning website he created for his client.

    In the video, Mark shows off some of the very slick elements of the SharePoint portal he had built for his client. Mark really leverages many of the DevExpress ASP.NET controls and he has great chart visuals too!

    He also shares his story about the website and the DevExpress experience:

    We originally started using the Pivot Grid to provide a dynamic way to display data. As we evolved the POC, we started using more and more controls. The idea that we could implement a basic theme was great for the POC phase of the project as we did not have a designer, and my design skills are lacking. Many times we would use the DevExpress.com Demo site to get ideas on how to best use the controls. Eventually, we standardized on using only DevExpress controls, or custom controls derived from the base DevExpress controls. Having full source code was a big plus as we could extend controls when necessary. -Mark Hazelton

    Thanks Mark for the video case study!
