The DevExpress WPF Layout Control Suite is a complete layout management solution for WPF. From a simple flow layout to a complex data entry form - all control arrangement tasks you can imagine are easily accomplished via simple drag and drop operations. With the DXLayoutControl, you will never have to worry about properly aligning your page elements by manually changing myriads of options.

Form development simplicity is a great benefit, but not the only one this suite has to offer you. No matter how easily you've built your window or page using our Layout Control, no matter how much thought and effort you've put into arranging controls... you can never satisfy all end-users. With the DevExpress Layout Control for WPF you don't have this problem. Not only can you easily create several versions of a window layout and let users choose which they like the best, but end-user layout customization is fully supported. Just like you customize toolbars in Visual Studio or Microsoft Word to adjust your environment to your particular needs, you can allow end-users to change the window by simply dragging elements around on-screen.
