Adaptive Dialogs in DevExpress ASP.NET Controls (v17.2)

In the v17.2 release, we've updated many of our ASP.NET controls to use adaptive dialogs. I talked about this feature in this recent ASP.NET Spreadsheet post.

Adaptive Dialogs

An adaptive dialog will resize its content automatically according to the screen resolution. For example, here's the DevExpress ASP.NET RichEdit's File Open dialog that now supports adaptive behavior:

To achieve this, we used the FormLayout and Popup controls in adaptive mode. For v17.2, we added the adaptive layout feature to the Popup control. Check out the online demos of these controls here:

We use our smaller controls within our larger controls. So the DevExpress ASP.NET Scheduler, RichEdit, etc. now get the benefits of these smaller controls because we use them for functionality like dialogs.

Which Controls?

These four major controls now make use of adaptive dialogs now with v17.2:

  1. Spreadsheet
  2. Rich Edit
  3. HTML Editor
  4. Scheduler

You can experience these controls in our updated online ASP.NET demos.

ASP.NET MVC supported

The DevExpress ASP.NET MVC versions of these controls also support adaptive dialogs now.

Try it today

You can test these new features today by downloading the DXperience v17.2 Beta that is available in your download center (for existing customers).
