ASP.NET Touch Support for the iPad and Android Tablet Devices (coming in v2011 vol 2)

Thinking Out Loud
26 September 2011

A couple of weeks ago, we posted a teaser video demonstrating touch support across a number of different DevExpress ASP.NET Controls.

I wanted to expand on that post a bit and describe what our ASP.NET Team has implemented. First and foremost, the following is a list of ASP.NET Controls with touch support (along with what can be executed using gestures):

  • ASP.NET Callback Panel-ASP.NET Panel - scrolling
  • ASP.NET Popup Control-ASP.NET Dock Panel - dragging, resizing, scrolling
  • ASP.NET Splitter - pane scrolling, pane resizing
  • ASP.NET Menu - scrolling
  • ASP.NET ListBox-ASP.NET ComboBox - item list scrolling
  • ASP.NET Grid - column header dragging, column resizing, scrolling
  • ASP.NET TreeList - column header dragging, node dragging
  • ASP.NET Scheduler - scrolling, appointment dragging
  • ASP.NET Pivot Grid - Scrolling, column header dragging,  customization window resizing

Note that these apply to both WebForms Controls and MVC counterparts of each control (yes, we will release an MVC PivotGrid Extension in this upcoming release). If you have never used our 80+ ASP.NET Controls, you can obtain more information on our award-winning products here:

Supported Browsers

Touch is supported on the Safari browser and Android 3+ browser. Win8 support will be around the corner.

How it Works

Our team created a scrollbar extender (a client object that can draw scrollbar indicators on the client side). Each control that uses scrollbars uses this extender. It includes a public API which can be used for your specific business needs.
