Hi Lucas,


I can’t to reproduce your issue.


My steps to create project and to add action for ARMs:


1. Create blank xaf cross-platform project
(New Project -> DevExpress v14.2 XAF Solution Wizard ->
Choose Target Platforms: Windows + Web -> Choose ORM: eXpress Persistent Object)


2. You have to read ticket Missing Link in Xafari Documentation and documentation  GettingStarted for ARM.


Module Project:

add modules XafariModule, XafariArmsModule;
add interface IModelYourAppName and controller EnableARMsViewController.


Windows Forms Application Project:

add modules XafariWinModule, XafariArmsWinModule;
add and realise CreateCustomTemplate event.


Web Application Project:

add modules XafariWebModule, XafariArmsWebModule;
add XafariDefaultTemplateContent;
implement the ISupportArms interface in the Default class.


3. Add controller with actions.


public partial class TestWindowController : WindowController
        public TestWindowController()
private void InitializeComponent()
            this.components = new System.ComponentModel.Container();
            this.simpleAction1 = new DevExpress.ExpressApp.Actions.SimpleAction(this.components);
            this.popupWindowShowAction1 = new DevExpress.ExpressApp.Actions.PopupWindowShowAction(this.components);
            // simpleAction1
            this.simpleAction1.Caption = "MySimpleAction23091";
            this.simpleAction1.ConfirmationMessage = null;
            this.simpleAction1.Id = "MySimpleAction23091";
            this.simpleAction1.ToolTip = null;
            this.simpleAction1.Category = "About";
            this.simpleAction1.Execute += simpleAction1_Execute;            
            // popupWindowShowAction1
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.AcceptButtonCaption = null;
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.CancelButtonCaption = null;
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.Caption = "MyPopupWindowShowAction23091";
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.ConfirmationMessage = null;
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.Id = "MyPopupWindowShowAction23091";
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.ToolTip = null;
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.Category = "About";
            this.popupWindowShowAction1.Execute += popupWindowShowAction1_Execute;
            // TestWindowController
        private DevExpress.ExpressApp.Actions.SimpleAction simpleAction1;
        private DevExpress.ExpressApp.Actions.PopupWindowShowAction popupWindowShowAction1;



private void simpleAction1_Execute(object sender, SimpleActionExecuteEventArgs e)
            MessageObject.CreateMessageInfo(e.ShowViewParameters, ((ActionBase)(sender)).Application, "Info", "MySimpleAction23091");
        private void popupWindowShowAction1_Execute(object sender, SimpleActionExecuteEventArgs e)
            MessageObject.CreateMessageInfo(e.ShowViewParameters, ((ActionBase)(sender)).Application, "Info", "MyPopupWindowShowAction23091");


4. Build the application.
5. Open Model.DesignedDiffs.xafml and add action for Arms:

Please, try this solution.
Regareds, Sasha.


Hello Sasha!
Thanks for your help! I already got it.
I discovered that the actions were not showing up in the selection had been created in a ViewController. Then, I created the actions in a WindowController and solve it.
