The ASPxFormLayout control delivers a comprehensive form design feature set. This demo illustrates the primary features of the ASPxFormLayout.
Use the ASPxFormLayout to easily create form layouts of any complexity by combining the order and hierarchy of provided layout elements. The ASPxFormLayout main layout elements are comprised of labeled items, labeled regular groups and tabbed groups.
Item elements serve as placeholders for editors or custom content. Group elements are containers for other layout elements. Group nesting is also available.
Items allow you to define inline help texts that describe editor definitions. Help texts can also be defined at the nested editor's level (if DevExpress editors are used in items). An editor's help text can be displayed either always (as an editor inline text) or only when the editor receives focus (as a popup tooltip). Take a look at the memo editor behavior in this demo.
The ASPxFormLayout can also display customizable text marks within item captions to indicate whether filling in an item editor is required or optional. The indicator display mode can be defined for all or individual items. The indicator type is determined based on a setting defined at the item editor level or an item level.
