Grid View - Accessibility Section 508/WCAG Compliance

Validate with WAVE

DevExpress ASP.NET MVC extensions can help you create web pages that conform to accessibility guidelines. Most our extensions implement the AccessibilityCompliant property, which allows more accessible markup to be generated for the extensions. Please review the Section 508 and Accessibility and Accessibility Support topics to learn more.

This demo illustrates how to make the GridView extension more accessible for end-users. In this demo, the grid operates in an accessible way. The grid’s AccessibilityCompliant property is enabled and a caption (the Caption property) for the grid is provided.

To check the accessibility level of the extensions used in the demo, run the WAVE or W3C automated web accessibility evaluation tool. In addition, you can enable the High Contrast mode to make sure the demo is rendered correctly in this mode.
