Sometimes you can have some contradictions between what is indicated on a vendor’s site and what is actually in the license agreement. We always encourage end users to read the license agreement from the vendor so that you can understand the terms of engagement. Infragistics and DevExpress both provide a free thirty days trial for all products suites and components for interested users.
