Security System Usability Improvements (Coming soon in v14.1)

With the new CheckedListBoxPropertyEditor editor, application administrators can now easily assign member-level permissions:


Technically, we have provided two PropertyEditor implementations (one for Windows and one for Web), which can display values via a checked list box control in the UI and store the resultant choice in a string property of a business object. For now, these editors are used only in the security module, but we can come with a more generic solution in the future if there is a good demand from our customers.


With the new XAF Solution Wizard, you can easily create client-server applications.  The wizard automatically creates a project for the application server and makes necessary changes in the client application’s code.

I really need access to that CheckedListBoxPropertyEditor in other parts of my XAF application.

@Dennis, this blog describes reason and a solution:

It is exactly how I use it in, for example, listview filter screens
