ASP.NET Bootstrap - Four New Controls (v18.2)

ASP.NET Team Blog
24 October 2018

We've ported four major ASP.NET controls to our excellent Bootstrap line of controls:

  1. Spreadsheet
  2. Rich Edit
  3. File Manager
  4. Ribbon

These additions mean that our Bootstrap control set is close to being as comprehensive as the classic DevExpress ASP.NET control suite.


These new controls for Bootstrap contain nearly all the same great features as the classic controls.


The Spreadsheet is an Excel-inspired extension that allows you to introduce spreadsheet functionality to your ASP.NET Bootstrap web applications with ease. It provides a rich UI and an extensive API to create, manage, and convert spreadsheet files.


  • Images
  • Formulas
  • Charting
  • Comments
  • Worksheet Protection
  • Worksheet Printing
  • Worksheet Display Area
  • Worksheet Freeze Panes
  • Sorting and AutoFilter
  • Data Validation
  • Mail Merging
  • Custom Data Merging
  • External Ribbon
  • Context Menu Customization

Rich Text Edit

The Rich Text Editor is a Word-inspired extension that allows you to introduce rich text editing functionality to your ASP.NET Bootstrap web applications with ease. Using the control's rich UI and comprehensive API, your app can create, manage, and convert rich text documents.


  • Paragraph Formatting
  • Styles
  • Text with Images
  • Bullets and Numbering
  • Hyperlinks and Bookmarks
  • Tables
  • Floating Objects
  • Document Protection
  • Document Restrictions
  • Export of PDF
  • Sections
  • Headers and Footers
  • Table of Contents
  • Spell Checking
  • Auto Correction
  • Fields
  • Document Variables
  • Mail Merging via Document Server
  • External Ribbon
  • Context Menu Customization

File Manager

FileManager represents an Explorer-like extension providing your end-users with the capability to manage files and folders. This extension allows end-users to easily upload and select files, and even change the folder structure (by renaming, moving and deleting files or folders).


  • File System Providers
  • View Modes
  • Access Control
  • Customization
  • Adaptivity


A Ribbon control provides your ASP.NET Bootstrap web applications with ribbon functionality, i.e., a set of toolbars placed on several tabs:


  • Data Binding
  • Keyboard Support
  • Quick Access Toolbar
  • Adaptivity
  • Templates
  • Client-Side Events
  • Client-Side Functionality

Take a look at this classic post to see some benefits of a Ribbon control.

Which of these controls have you been waiting to use in your Bootstrap websites?

Excellent. All Four were needed. Your implementation seems to be very good as always.

Will we be able to see all the goodies of ASP.NET in ASP.NET Core in nearby future?

Hi Vladislav, we don't have immediate plans to implement a File Manager component in DevExtreme. It should be quite easy to compose it using existing DevExtreme components. We might reconsider this later. Thank you for your interest.
