DevExpress ASP.NET Popup Control - Adaptive (17.2)

Starting with the v17.2 release, the DevExpress ASP.NET Popup Control has a new adaptive mode. In this mode, the popup will resize its content automatically according to the screen resolution. This mode provides the best experience for a user on any device, whether it's on the desktop, a tablet, or a phone. You can also configure the maximum and minimum widths to limit the resizing area. This mode supports a fixed header and footer, which will always be displayed regardless of the scroll position.

Check out the AdaptiveLayout demo page that shows how to create adaptive dialogs using the Popup and FormLayout controls:

Looks great!

Will this also work, when the content of the popupcontrol is loaded from another view/page via ContentUrl?

Yes, the component should be adaptive in this case as well. Let me know how it works on your side.
