Apart from the fact that the DevExpress components usually are flawless, support calls are always answered both fast and competent. You guys rock.

Lars Ugleberg

CEO and Founder, Applied Factors

I have used DevExpress WPF in the past, and always been impressed with their support and the richness of their offer. Now, as I am venturing into developing my first web application, I first looked at a competitor because they provide a free license. But I gave up because their documentation is inadequate. So, I have tried DevExtreme, and managed to use it quickly and with much less effort.

You guys are my main source. I am a one man operation and look to you guys for all my app development. I installed Logify last night and caught an error this morning at my clients site. This particular error was hard to catch because it involved certain aspects that I could not get to manifest on my PCs. I was able to track the error in my code and fix the issue. My client was super happy.

Been a customer a long time and have never been disappointed with the quality of work or service we've gotten from DevExpress. Their support team is amazing and usually answer our questions in less than a day. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and always do their best to help us any way they can. Don't change a thing DevExpress; you guys are awesome!

Our project began at the end of 2012 and we now have 4 customers and are in the works for more. Our solution needed to by web based and highly customizable as fast as possible as the business unit is always changing.

XAF helps with this and much more. We are able to deliver dashboards, KPI's, workflows, etc. And since it's a .NET app you can find solutions for what XAF doesn't do. The comments from our customers are positive and are impressed with our solution and our response times. XPO is great, our solution handles millions of records without effort. Of course, as with any database you should be careful to use it wisely (indexes, searches, how you load data into memory, etc).

The support is great, these guys go beyond their duty to try to help you. I've used it a lot during these years. At the end of the day for me it's totally worth it. It saves us a lot of work and creates great apps.

As a developer of ASP.NET and WinForms applications, I'm always looking to improve productivity. I used to build my own controls and/or download open source controls in order to have 'canned' features. Eight years ago I was in a crunch and decided to look into a commercial library. I tried a competitor and their controls wouldn't even install properly. I tried DevExpress controls and I haven't looked back since. The features available are mind-boggling. Anyone that has built reports knows how time consuming it can be. For a project with a WinForms component, as well as a Web component, I was able to build reports for the WinForms app, then simply link them to the Web app and use them with no changes at all.

Best of all is the support. Response is very timely. If I'm not sure how to approach a feature I want to add to a project, the advice is always spot on. Need to figure out how to do something that doesn't seem possible? They have a solution, with example code. On the rare occasion a bug surfaces, it is quickly addressed and fixed. I would highly recommend DevExpress to anyone.

We really appreciate the stellar support of DevExpress. It unbelievable how much effort DevExpress puts into support! Any problem we had was answered. They are the best company regarding support!

I noticed that search filtering wasn't working and was told I had to convert my data table to a dynamic object for search filtering to work.

Then I realized that using a dynamic object as a data source causes exceptions when sorting columns that contain null values. It just seemed like fixing one problem created another. So I looked around at other options and was very impressed with DevExpress. Overall your controls just seem more solid and feel more professional. I love your grid control with its multiple view options. I love that so many features are built in to the grid like the end-user conditional formatting GUI. I was able to simplify a lot of my code. While I was converting my controls to DevExpress controls, there was definitely a learning curve, but it paid off. Most of the time when I had a question I was able to find a solution in an existing support case. I look forward to learning more about your controls and implementing them in my application. Finally, I like the fact that I wasn't nagged by a sales person during my trial period.

Khaled Sherif

I used to work with another third-party framework for building web applications. After studying and working with XAF, it's a coder's heaven for business applications. Using the ORM XPO objects and mapping relations is a great visual feature. I can build applications in minutes. The cross-platform support is awesome! It saves me time and has a high level of maintainability.

We chose DevExpress for WPF and MVVM because of the huge range of possibilities it offers. Although we do not need all of them from scratch, over the time new requirements came up and DevExpress already had a solution for them. Most of our questions were answered by the knowledge base or in support-tickets or example projects from other users. Just in a few cases we had to submit new support tickets, which were answered quickly and satisfactorily. We just have to use the code from the sample project the support team provided. In direct comparison to other really expensive toolkits, DevExpress provides the best support by far. Furthermore, updates are published regularly with excellent Release Notes, including user requests very often. I really appreciate the work of the support team and the whole DevExpress team providing such good tools and support.

Also having the new "Diagram" tool with the package and the very good MVVM framework was the icing on the cake for me to go for DevExpress. However, all this was the initial selection. I have downloaded the 30days free trial and start using it. I had to go to your knowledge base and documentation and I have found it excellent. I could find most of my answers. All the questions (tickets) were answered professionally and most of the time accompanied with some examples. This I would call a very good customer support. Experiencing DevExpress left no doubt in my mind to go ahead with you guys and base my new WPF project on your fantastic framework. Thanks for such a great product. Keep up the excellent work!

Back in 2009 I was facing a new project where I had to choose a component library. My first thought was that choice will be hard. In the end I quickly narrowed it to only few libraries. Even then, DevExpress was easy choice. Ever since, I was in luck that companies that I worked for had purchased DevExpress library, and used it for their projects.

Speed of development (after quickly getting used to DevExpress component library), is very very fast. Beside components, there is a whole bunch of other projects which are also very good, like DevExtreme, CodeRush and others. I must mention that CodeRush will further more increase effectiveness of developer, even allowing them to very easily extend it and implement their custom plugins. I use it and would recommend it to every developer to give it a try.

Support is also very good. Answers we get are very fast and usually very helpful and problem solving. Sometimes some things are misunderstood, but after a demo we get the directions what to do. I had very positive experience where I submitted a ticket for the area, I'm sure, that few are using. DevExpress support made an exception and squeezed in this fix in next release. I use this opportunity to say thank you guys once again.

I was tasked to create some software that would read a csv file, allow users to listen to audio for a selected row, and make changes as needed and save it back to the csv file. Sparing you all the smaller details, what would normally take a week or two without your controls, I was able to create this application in less than two days.

My company was so impressed that even our CEO gave it praise. Truth is, this would not have been possible without the tools that you provide users with. They have made my work life SO much easier and I really appreciate it. Your support team is on a level that I've never experienced with software products. They are always prompt with their answers and provide links, sample projects, etc. so we can understand what we're trying to accomplish.

So thank you again to everyone involved, from the development to sales and support, you've made me more productive while making my job easier. There's no better outcome than that!

We have searched for an add-on for a WinForms application for a large customer project. The focus was on a fast grid with enhanced functionality, special gauge controls (like traffic lights and tachometer), and controls with a good look and feel in common. We have bought DevEpress and were not disappointed. The properties and events are not self-explanatory / logical (for us) in every case, but we have found everything we need (and that's the most important). Show All

We have bought DevEpress and were not disappointed. The properties and events are not self-explanatory / logical (for us) in every case, but we have found everything we need (and that's the most important).

The XtraGrid is really stunning (and alone worth the price). It is:

    Very fast. Very complete functionality (everything that is needed is built in). Usable, and fully dynamic (serve from code) without problems (set a datatable or a list as datasource and format it in code). All needed events are there.

We use the XtraGrid on almost every form in the application (query forms but also administration forms)

Also the text editor saves a lot of time for plausibility checks. The all-in-all look-and-feel (picture buttons, tab-control, checklistbox, and so on) behavior of the controls is an important success factor for the user acceptance. There is a big difference between the look-and-feel of a standard WinForms application and a DevExpress powered window forms application.

Further, the DevExpress support stuff is really stunning. We develop since over 20 years - best support ever. In almost every case we had feedback in a few hours and the support don't give up until a problem is solved. We only wished we had bought earlier as we can save a lot of time with it and reach a better user acceptance with it.

Through its neat and effective design the software is worth about two mid-level programmers by providing quick, stable and elegant solutions to both my every day and niche programming requirements.

On my development team I found that DevExpress acts as a major workforce multiplier. Through its neat and effective design the software is worth about two mid-level programmers by providing quick, stable and elegant solutions to both my every day and niche programming requirements. If we had to write the components provided by DevExpress from the ground up when we needed them, I'd have to have two programmers sitting down doing just that all day long! In addition, through its unrivalled and superbly capable support team, it's like having this friendly, highly-skilled software expert right on my own development team! Simply raise a support ticket and a well-designed solution to the question promptly lands on my desk, or sometimes one is simply gently guided by expert hands to plug the holes in your understanding of the vast library of DevExpress components. While still evaluating a trial version of the product, I raised a query with the support team, they discovered a minor software glitch which caused the problem, and within a week I received a hotfix that solved the issue! Try and beat that for professionalism and service!

On a small development team like mine I could never afford a person with the level of technical expertise even approaching those embodied in the DevExpress support team, yet I have that service available as part of the annual DevExpress subscription. I have simply never received more value than this for a mere $900!

Thanks Team DevExpress!

Simply, DevExpress is the first product I have ever used, that is actually designed for developers, but with the same concepts that are used to design for non-technical end users. Everything is really easy to use, Dashboard Designer, Project Wizard, too many great tools that will make even the technical developer feel like they are now an End User.

After using XAF for some time now, I cannot even think of building a complex application (WinForms and/or ASP.NET) without it anymore. It is a very powerful and customizable business applications framework built upon the best components on the market. Anyway, maybe one of the best things is the fantastic support team. Every time I think there's something that can't be done with XAF they very clearly explain how to accomplish what I need.

Started using DevExpress about 3 years ago for .NET WPF development.

Started using DevExpress about 3 years ago for .NET WPF development. They have a massive suite of add-ons, with excellent documentation and running samples with source code that can easily be adapted for your own project. Recently started using the ASP controls and have found they are as comprehensive and easy to use as the other controls.

Perhaps the best thing, however is the level of support. Questions are always answered quickly and comprehensively, often with samples or fixes to your code. The support team are without doubt the best I have ever come across, by a large margin.

I can thoroughly recommend using DevExpress, the product you develop will have a much richer set of features than can be achieved with .NET alone, without any significant extra effort.

A few years ago when we started using Visual Studio for our programming tools my boss told me to go look for tools to help us write in Visual Studio. After visiting several different sites to learn more about their products I found yours. I could not believe a company would have so much concern for their customers to not only help them but to constantly improve their own products and never with an attitude of arrogance (as I saw in many other products) but with the idea that we work together as a team. Hence we keep on using your tools. Besides the tools being terrific in them selves your support is beyond comparison. I have never felt looked down on or not important. That means a lot to us.

You guys are terrific! Thanks so much for all that you have done and continue to do for us out here in the field. Thank you for all your support and help. Without it I would never get the projects done. That is why we love your products. (Besides the fact that they are the greatest!!!)

When I signed up last year for a DevExpress license for Windows 8 XAML controls my initial thoughts were we would not need to renew our license after a year. The Support Team are fast to respond to calls, very knowledgeable and by providing sample projects it makes my life so much easier. In fact in one instance one of your support team gave me advice on an issue that was not even relevant to the DevExpress libraries. Show All

When it came to renewing our license at the end of the first year this was now a no-brainer for me. With the regular updates and the fantastic support we will likely continue to be renewing each year for the foreseeable future. Keep up the good work!

Great suite of controls. I've been able to test both this and (competitor name withheld) suite and given that both suite are feature-packed and high performance, I had no doubt about choosing DevExpress one. Reason is I find it to be MUCH more easy to develop with (both server and client side), less bugged, less need for workarounds for even basic functions you would expect from controls. Of all the things that really made my decision by the way… Show All

Great suite of controls. I've been able to test both this and (competitor name withheld) suite and given that both suite are feature-packed and high performance, I had no doubt about choosing DevExpress one. Reason is I find it to be MUCH more easy to develop with (both server and client side), less bugged, less need for workarounds for even basic functions you would expect from controls. Of all the things that really made my decision by the way the most important was the ease of coding with the controls, I barely had to go through documentation and everything worked as expect on first shot.
I'm an happy customer!

DevExpress provide the best controls and support in the world. If you ever have an issue or a problem you can't solve in relation to their controls a simple support request is sent and you have your response back within a few hours, sometimes even quicker. They don't just refer you the help file either. They give go the extra mile by giving you guidance on what needs to happen to make your project work & even if you don't fully understand initially they are quite happy to… Show All

I can't fault them and the product and on-going support is worth every penny! My special thanks go out to all the DevExpress team and especially Dennis, Alexey and Anatol who are true legends!

I just wanted to let you know that your support is great. Not only that I am getting quick answers to all of my questions, your public ticketing system is so well organized and indexed by search engines that it is very easy to find ideas to solve my problems even without contacting you.

We are very happy with DevExpress. The support team is amazing. All our question were answered within 12 hours. Even there is no solution out of the box, there is always an alternative way. This gives us the feeling that nothing is impossible. We are looking forward to program a lot more nice stuff with DevExpress.

After 25 Years of professional windows development I have never seen a library like DevExpress. AWESOME! This great grid control is the best I've ever seen! An investment that makes happy!

I would like to take the opportunity to compliment you and your colleagues at DevExpress Support. I have worked with many support organizations and your support really stands out: it is outstanding. I have mainly been in contact with you and Anatol and it is always a pleasure to work with you guys. Keep up the good work!

Responses to requests for assistance from customers has been, in my experience, exemplary: prompt, friendly and competent.

I have been using the DevExpress modules for several years and it has saved me a lot of time and trouble. They are also looking well which gives the users a great experience. The support from the company is exceptionally good and so is the example materials they provide.
