New Editor Controls for WPF and Silverlight (Coming in v2010 vol 2)

The DevExpress Editors Library for WPF as well as Silverlight provide you with a collection of controls that give you the flexibility of using editor controls to display formatted data as well as provide interactive and enhanced editing functionality. To further extend our data editors collection, we have created three new editor controls in the upcoming v2010 vol 2 release of DXperience.

These controls are...

  1. Calculators
  2. Color Pickers
  3. Password Box
