Reduce Data Input Errors Masks, Input Parsing and Validation

  • Advanced Masked Input - The Xtra Editors Library was designed with flexibility in mind and our masked edit support is a reflection of this commitment. Not only are you able to construct simple masks with ease, but because DevExpress provide you full Regular Expression support, you can generate masks that can address even the most complex data entry scenario.
  • Input Parsing and Value Formatting - The Xtra Editors Library provides 25 controls that accept data input and offer your end-users keyboard driven data entry wherever possible - along with flexible data representation formats for all textbox-based editors.
  • Input Validation Techniques - Use input masks and other editor capabilities - such as limiting input string length, specifying maximum and minimum allowed values, etc - to control how users manipulate data and prevent incorrect value input.
  • Unmatched End-User Capabilities - Extended text and keyboard input support, value scrolling, and resizable drop down windows are just a few of the features that simplify usage and improve the end-user experience.

HTML Formatting and Appearance Customization

  • HTML Style Formatting - The controls included in the WinForms Data Editors Library are able to emphasize portions of text displayed within them using HTML tags. This feature allows you to format text as business needs dictate (bold, italic, underline, font size, color, etc).
  • Appearance Customization - Multiple paint styles, including Windows theme support, numerous built-in skins, the ability to create custom skins and apply the selected paint style to all controls used within an application.
