Anyone is able to use .Net visual controls? (Like DevExpress?)

Startbeitrag von Alexandre Leclerc am 21.01.2015 18:59

Hi All,

I try to use some .Net controls for advanced features we need. But I'm just not able to make any of them work in WinDev 19/20.

For example, I tried https://www.devexpress.com/Products/NET/Controls/WinForms/ to use the advanced editor, but it fails in reading the package and to use it.

I also tried Text Control .Net free Express version of their editor, but it also fails to execute. http://www.textcontrol.com/en_US/sites/tx-text-control-express/

(And error says that an exception has been thrown, etc.)

So my big question is: is there anyone that was able to use .Net graphical controls? I would like to give a try to WPF but this is currently out of my technical abilities. I just don't know how to use this control in WinDev.

Any pointer or help will be appreciated.

Best regards,
Alexandre Leclerc


Hmm , cool controls!

If we could use some of the webcomponents in webdev then that would rock.

I donnot know how. But am verry interested

Hi Allard,

Yep, I would like so nice documentation on how to do that in WinDev. I asked the technical support about it too. I will see.

As a side note, we bought Text Control ActiveX solution and it really rocks. DevExpress looks nice (the editor) but on performance and feature side they are not even where Text Control is. And file quality (rtf, doc, html, etc.) is much better in Text Control (personnel impression).

I just wanted to use the .Net control to play with it. But I never was able, since the .Net control is available in WinDev, to make anything work with it. It might be me, it might not.

Best regards,
Alexandre Leclerc

I`ve had TX Control since v13 and yes it rocks, so also Farpoint Grid. :)

From my experiments I feel that we can only use .NET non-vusual components or let me say .NET libraries.

All .NET components that have visual interface required WinForms (in most cases) and WinDev Window does not emulate WinForms object.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi everybody,

If I remember correctly, Vincent Roy did some development a few years back to be able to do just that, then discovered in the next Windev version that it was natively possible...

If you do a search on the French PCSoft forum, you should find the corresponding information

Best regards

Of cource native controls or best. But as you state it they become availeble in later versions.
The DevExpress controls are top latest technologie controls.
They top Windev, for the pivot control etc. Even the version 20 Windev pivot table is unable to add sumery fields in sections.
But they are availeble or the web as well. For the web webdev is lightyears behind. If it where possible to use some of the advacaed controls and still use the fantastic w-language and other cool rapid development stuff then that would be great.

Hello Allard

I'm afraid you misunderstood me, Allard... I am not talking about using native controlS of windev to replace external .net visual controls...

I am saying that .net visual controls were not supported/usable and that Vincent coded a work around to support them...

Then, in the next WinDev version, the WORKAROUND was not needed anymore because .net visual controls were natively supported in a new field...

Best regards

Hi everyone,

Now WinDev is indeed providing native controls to use WinForm and XAML stuff from .Net packages. I actually try to use the new ".Net 2.0 control (WinForm)" and "XAML (.Net 3.0+) control" but was unable to do so. (Especially the XAML thing since I know nothing about that.)

But two things happened since my initial post:
1. The Free Technical Support was able to reproduce a small problem they will investigate to find out if the problem is on their side or the .Net package I was trying to use.
2. They were not able to reproduce my usage problem with other packages. So I guess there is a problem on my workstation. So I'm waiting some new from them too.

But I take a chance here on this forum: I use Windows 8.1 for which the .Net framework is installed by default. But the moment I try to add a .Net package to the project I get an error that the IDE is not able to open the specified file.

Do I need to install anything else (like a special SDK) so that WinDev can work properly using .Net packages? I saw the screenshot of the Free Technical Support and they could include all the packages without a problem.

Thank you all for your contributions and best regards,
Alexandre Leclerc
