ASP.NET Team Blog
02 December 2013

Take a look at the new DevExpress SharePoint 2013 Demo site:

DevExpress ASP.NET and SharePoint 2013

The new demo is great too. It's cleaner and we've improved the navigation. On the left side, you'll find the DevExpress ASP.NET NavBar (ASPxNavBar) control integrated there. Give it a try now.

SharePoint 2013 supported

Beginning with the DevExpress 13.1 release, SharePoint 2013 is supported by all the DevExpress ASP.NET controls. Including the two SharePoint specific WebParts (List GridView and HtmlEditor):

New SharePoint 2013 features in 13.2

We added support for SharePoint 2013 in the first release of 2013 (13.1). But we wanted to wait to announce it because we've added a lot more features in the 13.2 release:

  1. The new SharePoint 2013 Demo portal! - We completely redesigned this demo and the new site gives you a great example of DevExpress ASP.NET integrated into SharePoint 2013.
  2. Design time support - DevExpress ASP.NET controls fully support design time in SharePoint projects. See also: Visual Web Part Creation
  3. ASPxHtmlEditor and SPxHtmlEditorWebPart:
    1. Improved visual interface in the list pages
    2. Controls are hidden on SharePoint wiki pages
  4. SPxListViewWebPart - DevExpress ASP.NET GridView SharePoint WebPart:
    1. Document Library support - (Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive)
    2. Support SPFieldLookup - (A lookup field takes its value from a field in another list. The list that provides data for the lookup field is called the lookup list. To get a reference to the lookup list, access the SPFieldLookup object's LookupList property. To determine which field in the lookup list is providing information, access the LookupField property)
    3. Support SPChoiceField and SPFieldMultiChoice - (SPFieldChoice - allows you to select one or more values)
    4. Support SPFieldUser (Similar to SPFieldLookup)
    5. External Field Support (This column lets you combine a column of data from an external data source with other columns in a native list or library. Because an external data column is added to a native list or library, all related list or library features work, including versioning, approvals, check-in and check-out, and file attachments )
    6. New context menu with different access rights
    7. New web part settings panel
    8. Localization

SharePoint 2010, MOSS 2007

Starting with version 13.1 (v2013 vol 1), DevExpress ASP.NET controls only support SharePoint 2013.


DevExpress base/ASP.NET products migrated to .NET Framework v4+ with version 13.1 (v2013 vol 1). SharePoint versions prior to SharePoint 2013 are no longer supported (as of 13.1), because they require/operate under ASP.NET v2 (.NET v2) runtime.

If you're using any of the following versions then you'll need to use DevExpress ASP.NET controls that prior versions of 13.1 (v2013 vol 1):

  • WSS 3.0
  • MOSS 2007
  • SharePoint 2010
