WinUI 3 for UWP vs WinUI 3 for Desktop (Win32)

DevExpress WinUI controls are available for use within WinUI 3 for UWP apps. WinUI 3 for desktop (Win32) requires optimization, so we have chosen not to support it at this time. We are aware that WinUI 3 for Win32 is more appealing to desktop developers and are working with Microsoft to bring DevExpress WinUI controls to WinUI 3 for Win32 apps.

HI Alex, is possible to use your WinUI control with UnoPlatform?

Stefano - not at this time. Should we pursue Uno support, we will definitely let everyone now. Have a great day.

Yes, UNO support is essential!  Infragistics has already released an Uno-specific control set.  (We had to use Syncfusion for Xamarin because Devexpress was late to *that* party...)

Hi, is it possible to use the WinUI controls in a "WinUI for Desktop" project?

Customer196182,


WinUI 3 for Desktop (Win32) requires optimization, so we decided not to support it at this time. We are working with Microsoft to bring DevExpress WinUI controls to WinUI 3 for Win32 apps as soon as possible.


Thanks,

Alex

@Alex

I am going to have to unfortunately join the Uno band wagon here.

@Ray

I know I spoke to you specifically in an email about the UWP controls a couple of years ago and the impression I got from you that it was hard to say what was going to become of the framework due to the mixed community reception vs Microsoft's seeming push. Now we're kind of back at the same thing with Win UI 3, but at least this time WPF should look to benefit from it... but yeah, I get it when you may not be sure about UWP itself. Uno seems to have changed that a bit though.


Uno has really taken off and I'd argue it has made UWP more attractive. I am also in the access preview for windows devs and Microsoft is doing a lot of promotion on their side for Uno, which is exciting. 

It is something to consider. I know you have a lot of other things on your plates, but I just wanted to voice my vote for Uno support. I personally would take it over Xamarin.
