  • IE7 no longer supported in v15.1 and above

    The DevExpress ASP.NET controls will no longer support Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) in version 15.1 and above.

    If you still have to support IE7 then you can use v14.2 of our ASP.NET controls, but my advice is to move forward. Once IE security updates are no longer available, your risk window will start to expand.

    Your feedback

    Recently I asked if dropping IE7 would affect you and your customers.

    The response was a resounding call to drop IE7 and move our codebase forward.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Upgrade to latest IE

    I recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.

    Why? Because many modern websites do not support older browsers. Read more here.

    And older browsers also prevent us from moving forward. Read more here.

    Project Spartan (IE in Windows 10)

    I'm excited to see the new versions of IE that are being announced with Windows 10. With a possible new rendering engine, improved JavaScript, etc. It's an exciting time to be a web developer.

    And, as usual, DevExpress web technologies will support the popular released browsers.

  • Video: DevExpress ASP.NET MVC: Unobtrusive Validation

    Validation of input data is important for your websites. Here's a great XKCD comic that drives home this point:

    XKCD - Exploits of a mom

    Now, check out the video for my recent webinar on ASP.NET MVC's Unobtrusive Validation feature:

    DevExpress ASP.NET MVC: Unobtrusive Validation

    What's it about?

    The video begins with me giving a short description, history, and a few other details about the ASP.NET MVC Unobtrusive Validation feature.

    Then, Don Wibier (DevExpress Technical Evangelist), shows three technical demos about:

    1. The standard ASP.NET MVC feature for unobtrusive validation from Microsoft.
    2. How DevExpress MVC Extensions build on top of the standard ASP.NET MVC feature.
    3. WebForms developers also have great validation features available to them with DevExpress ASP.NET WebForms controls. And Don shows a small WebForms example to highlight these features.
