Project Description
CAB DevExpress Extension Kit is a library that allows the use of DevExpress WinForm components within CAB (Composite UI Application Block). It includes DevExpress-specific Workspaces, UIElementAdapters, CommandAdapters; basically all the classes needed to use DevExpress controls with CAB. Some examples are: XtraFormApplication, NavBarItemCommandAdapter, XtraWindowWorkspace, XtraTabWorkspace, and RibbonStatusBarUIAdapter.

Current Status
We've just released the 4th drop, with an improved sample app, some unit tests and more support for Ribbons (see http://devlynx.livejournal.com for updates and background info behind these)

CAB Information
For more information on CAB see the the SmartClient project and read Rich Newman's Intro to CAB for a detailed and informative guide on each of CAB's components. Rich's articles would be essential reading for those thinking about contributing to the CABDevExpress.ExtensionKit.

The BankTeller Sample Application (from the CAB distribution) modified to use DevExpress controls and the CABDevExpress.ExtensionKit:

The easiest way to contribute, is to download SvnBridge and use SVN/Tortoise. Submitting a code change, then, is as simple as Right-click | Create Patch.
