Our new WinForms Accordion Control is an advanced navigation control designed to extend the capabilities found in our existing XtraNavBar control. The Accordion Control allows you to create a full-featured NavBar with multiple items (actions). Items can be combined into groups. Groups can contain nested groups so you can create an advanced hierarchical navigation menu.
- Unlimited number of hierarchy levels
- Items can display images and text
- Context buttons
- Item headers can display custom controls
- Item selection
- Group expansion/collapse animation (one or multiple groups can be expanded simultaneously)
- Built-in search
WinForms Navigation Pane
Our new WinForms Navigation Pane control provides a set of pages that can be vertically aligned into a single column. Only a single page can be active at any point in time. Pages can be expanded sideways to display custom content.
WinForms SDI Navigation Frame
Our new WinForms Navigation Frame is an SDI (Single Document Interface) content container. This control owns a collection of pages. Only one page can be active at any point in time. Pages can host any content, from panels and group boxes to user controls. Page navigation incorporates elegant animation effects.
The DevExpress MVVM library, previously available to WPF developers, has now been extended to WinForms so you can create complex WinForms apps that adhere to concepts underpinning MVVM. Our MVVM Framework is fully supported by all DevExpress WinForms UI controls and provides design-time capabilities to perform basic operations, such as property and command binding, creating and registering services, etc.
Scaffolding wizards available from the DevExpress Template Gallery and numerous tutorials included into our 'MVVM Best Practices' WinForms demo help you master usage of the DevExpress MVVM Framework and build scalable, maintainable and testable enterprise applications for WinForms.
