Form Layout

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.

Automatic Layout

Automatic arrangement of presentation controls

Automatic Layout

Designed to increase productivity, the DevExpress Layout Control eliminates many of the tedious and time consuming operations associated with pixel-based form design, including manual control alignment. The Layout Control helps you bring products to market in the shortest possible time by reducing the amount of energy you spend on the design and manual customization of individual forms. Key features include:

  • Automatic control resizing.
  • Automatic control alignment.
  • Independent layout within groups.
  • Customizable size constraints for controls.

Data Driven Layout

Intelligent form design

Data Driven Layout

With the DevExpress VCL Layout Control, you don't have to place individual labels and editors onto the form and then carefully align them to one another. You do not have to bind each individual editor to data and provide proper label captions corresponding to field names. With the Layout Control, all this is done automatically. You simply bind the control to a data source and specify which fields are to be displayed.

Panels and Tab Groups

Present controls as expandable or tabbed panels.

Panels and Tab Groups

There is no need to use external Panels and Tab control to combine data editors and controls into titled panels or present them as tabbed pages. Everything is built-in.

Alignment & Resizing

Build a Responsive UI.

Alignment & Resizing

The DevExpress VCL Layout Control introduces automatic arrangement of presentation controls and proportional resizing. Setting size constraints for layout items and their controls allows you to define how layout items are resized.

Runtime Customization

Built-in End-User Customization

Runtime Customization

Allow your end-users to layout and manage their own UI - as their needs dictate without seeking assistance from developers or being forced to use developer oriented tools.

Save/Restore Layouts

Save and restore runtime layout customizations made by users.

Save/Restore Layouts

The DevExpress VCL Layout Control allows you to save information on its layout, and then restore it. This information may include the visibility, position, spacing, size and appearance settings of layout items and groups.
