The DevExpress ASP.NET News Control (ASPxNewsControl) control was primarily designed to display a list of news/product announcements on a web page.
In this demo, the ASPxNewsControl obtains its items from an XML file through an XmlDataSource component. The XML file (NewsControlRSS.xml) conforms to RSS 2.0 specifications. A click on any news item's tail text invokes a popup (ASPxPopupControl) window containing the full text of the news entry. The ASPxPopupControl is bound to the same data source as the ASPxNewsControl. The ASPxPopupControl's popup window is invoked via the client ShowWindow method, which is passed with the popup window's name as a parameter.
The NavigateUrlFormatString property of the ASPxNewsControl is set in a specific manner in order to define the desired URLs for tail text. (See the ASPX code.)
The ItemSettings.TailPosition property of the ASPxNewsControl is set to KeepWithLastWord. (See the ASPX code.)
