TechEd Europe 2010–Using DevExpress with SharePoint

IT Pros need controls too!

This week Rory, Gary and I are in Berlin, Germany for the 2010 edition of TechEd Europe. There are over 6500 attendees here and all hungry for information on Microsoft’s latest plans.

The European event, like many of the other TechEds, has a big IT Pro contingent. Many of those IT Pros are looking for SharePoint solutions.

A very popular question this week has been “Do your controls works with SharePoint?”.

The answer is yes, we do have controls that are suitable for developers working with both Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Services 2007 being supported.

Using ASP.NET controls in a SharePoint solution

You can make use of DevExpress web controls within SharePoint portals in two ways: by installing our SharePoint add-ons containing specific Site Features, or by inserting the web controls you want to use directly into SharePoint pages.

TechEd Europe: Rachel, Rory and GaryIf you own the grid control for ASP.NET or the ASP.NET HTML Editor, you can achieve a codeless integration of the Grid View and HTML Editor. You can view the ASP.NET grid control and the ASP.NET HTML Editor in action via our SharePoint demo site.

Where can I find more information?

If you want to check out some of the ASP.NET controls from DXperience in a SharePoint environment, head over to our SharePoint Demo Site.

With that, we will say “Best Wishes” from Berlin.

Is that lemonade in those glasses? :)

It would be nice to have versions of DX webparts (especially grid) that can bind directly to a BDC (Business Data Catalog).

I tried to make it work and it was lots of work that I would like to avoid :-)

Is that the real Rory Becker, or just a cutout that Gary's holding up?

Cheers, Julian
