  • ASP.NET MVC Wrappers

    Razor C#
    Razor VB
    @(Html.DevExtreme().Popover()
        .ID("popover")
        .Target("#targetElement")
        .ShowEvent("dxhoverstart")
        .HideEvent("dxhoverend")
        .ContentTemplate(@<text>
            <p>Popover content</p>
        </text>)
    )
    <div id="targetElement"></div>
    @Code
        Html.DevExtreme().Popover() _
            .ID("popover") _
            .Target("#targetElement") _
            .ShowEvent("dxhoverstart") _
            .HideEvent("dxhoverend") _
            .ContentTemplate(Sub()
                @<text>
                    <p>Popover content</p>
                </text>
            End Sub).Render()
    End Code
    <div id="targetElement"></div>

Note that DevExtreme widgets require you to link the jQuery library to your application. If you use the Knockout or AngularJS approach, the Knockout or AngularJS library is also required.
