About the Popup Window

PopupControl extension makes it easy to display fully customizable popup windows and hints within your web application.

If you need to display a popup window when end-users click an HTML element, then you only need to specify that element's ID - the rest is done automatically.

View code:

@Html.DevExpress().PopupControl(settings => {
    settings.Name = "pcOverview";
    settings.PopupElementID = "popupArea";
    settings.AllowDragging = true;
    settings.ShowOnPageLoad = true;
    settings.CloseAction = CloseAction.CloseButton;
    settings.HeaderText = "Area of Countries";
    settings.SetContent(() => {
            "<img src=\"" + Url.Content("~/Images/CountriesArea.png") + "\" alt=\"Area of Countries\" />"
<div id="popupArea" style="height: 300px;">Click here to invoke a popup window</div>
