Create Your Own Custom DNN Modules
Not simply a Form Builder, XMod Pro is the only complete application builder for DNN.
What You’re Getting
XMod Pro is a complete application builder for DNN. Our tools make it simple to build
a fully functional custom module within minutes and then customize it to fit the look and feel of your site.
The most important thing we've learned in our 10+ years of developing XMod (and now XMod Pro) for DNN is that
while a quick point-and-click forms builder is useful, you quickly discover the limitations of an auto-generated
solution. That's why we provide not only the wizards and tools you need to quickly get started, we ensure you
won't outgrow its inherent limitations by giving you complete sophisticated built-in tags and actions as well
just about anything can be built with XMod Pro.
XMod Pro is Localizable Too!
Build Complete Applications Fast!
Easily create apps from your database with a couple of clicks.
You get Add/Edit/Delete and list/detail views in mere minutes.
SQL and even custom server-side add-ons and 3rd party extensions.
You can control the HTML and CSS so any layout or integration with
responsive frameworks like Bootstrap is easy.
Our tools will build your SQL commands but you can also use your own tables,
views, stored procedures, and functions in the DNN database or in
external SQL Server databases.
Send email, store and display user data, verify user roles,
POST to outside URL's, Redirect the user to alternate pages, add dynamic meta tags,
Enhance Other Modules
Don't like the interface of one of your modules? Do you want to enhance its feature set?
Use XMod Pro's power to tie into its tables and stored procedures to write your own.
Feeds enable you to provide not only data feeds like RSS, but also create printer-friendly HTML
pages, downloadable CSV, Word, and Excel files, and output JSON data to use your pages.
Bestselling Module for 10+ Years
Since 2004, we've been selling XMod, and now XMod Pro to rave reviews. Thousands of sites
and customers trust XMod Pro to deliver for them.
Support and Community
It's easy to get started with XMod Pro but it is the deepest module out there because
we provide a lot of functionality. We offer articles and how-to's, free Module Kits as jump-starts,
as well as a vibrant community providing answers to your pressing questions.
- Form Builder:
Generate forms for DotNetNuke in a snap! Build your form with ease of drag & drop
and style it in minutes with the integrated design/style of jQuery UI.This form generator
gives you complete control to create custom DNN forms for any use quickly and easily.
Tweak the form builder-built form or build your own. You have complete control to
layout and style your form. Responsive forms? No problem. Easily integrate with
Bootstrap or any other framework. Create super DNN forms with exactly the style,
layout, organization and look that you need. Easily enhance and modify the form
code with your own HTML tweaks, jQuery enhancements and CSS styles and rules.

Panel (with role-based visibility), Tabstrip,
Listbox, Dropdown List, Checkbox and Checkbox List, Radio Button and Radio Button List,

- Custom Registration and Role Management:
Create custom Registration and Login forms for your DNN site. You can even add and remove roles

- Complete Validation:
Required, Comparison, Range, Regular Expression, Email, CAPTCHA, Database,
XML, Action, Checkbox, and Checkbox List
- Send Emails:
Define one or more email templates, each of which can be sent to different email addresses. So
you can send a confirmation to the customer and a different email to the sales department.
- Success Messages and Redirection:
Thank your user for their submission, provide additional links and more. Send users to
different URLs and/or silently POST information to yet another URL.
All Form information is fully localizable. Labels and data can be localized. You can even
have distinct forms and different data commands for each language and XMod Pro will
dynamically the form based on the current language. This allows you to present a different
layout or different set of form fields and data commands based on the user's current locale.
Create custom form controls and actions (commands that execute without a user interface) or
purchase pre-made controls and actions from our growing list of 3rd party add-on developers.
- Virtually Limitless Layout Capabilities:
XMod Pro can generate bullet lists, numbered lists, tables, and more from your data
Of course, you can also start from scratch and code the HTML yourself. It is up to you.
XMod Pro doesn't get in your way if you want to integrate with jQuery plugins or
responsive layout frameworks like Bootstrap.
- AJAX Views:
page through your data, view details, search, sort, and delete records — all without
a page refresh.
- Multiple Views in One Module Instance:
Original to XMod Pro, this innovative feature allows you to craft a more complete
application experience. You can mix and match multiple views in one module instance
and lay them out with HTML. Even better, clicking a button in one view can trigger
updates to one or more other views. If you have AJAX enabled, it all happens without a
- Feeds - the Unsung Hero of XMod Pro:
Create RSS feeds, XML exports, Excel and CSV downloads, printer-friendly pages. Also,
use feeds to easily drive your AJAX interface - retrieve HTML or JSON data and even
execute data commands. You can even secure your feeds by DNN role.
There very few things you cannot do with Feeds.
- Searching, Sorting, Paging Built-In:
Provide XMod Pro with a little information about your data and it will setup a
search box and sort box for your data. Paging is automatic. All of these features
are customizable. Advanced searching is possible by passing values into the page
via the URL or POST so you can create a custom search form using XMod Pro and use
that to perform an advanced search.
- Enhance SEO Capabilities and Facebook Integration:
XMod Pro gives you the ability to dynamically add-to or change the page's Title,
Keywords, and Description. Use hard-coded values, environmental data, or data from the database.
You can even create custom meta tags so you can now customize your pages with
Facebook's Open Graph.
You can detect and react to the current locale to retrieve localized content.
XMod Pro can dynamically load a different view based on the current locale. Plus,
XMod Pro's Format tag enables you to format dates and currency according to the current locale.
- Custom Data Commands:
In addition to standard CRUD commands, you can add custom commands. For instance,
with these commands you could setup a button to approve a record or do anything
else you need in the database.
- DNN Search Integration:
Using a custom query, combined with field tokens and your text, you can make sure t
he DNN search engine indexes and returns exactly the information you want.
- Share Forms and Templates Across Portals:
Global forms and templates can be used on all of your site's portals. This greatly
simplifies maintenance for multi-portal sites since you only have to make changes
in one place and those changes will automatically propagate to all your portals.
- Color Syntax Hilighting Editor:
When editing your code you can take advantage of our syntax hilighting code editor.
It comes complete with pop-up designers for XMod Pro tags, re-usable
snippets you can define, auto-indent and more. Plus, we provide an inline editor
so you can quickly make changes and tweaks to your templates and forms
- Integrated Database Table Designer:
Now there's no need to fire up SQL Server Management Studio to whip up a quick
prototype database table. You can create basic tables from within XMod Pro.
Use the built-in table creator to create columns, name them, select a data type,
allow Null values, mark the column as an identity field, and set default data values.
- Free Staging/Localhost License:
Each license entitles you to run XMod Pro on your "localhost" environment for
development purposes without requiring licensing.
- Free Upgrades for 1 Year:
Every license comes with a complimentary one-year subscription that
covers free module upgrades for one year. This means that, from the date of
purchase, you will receive all XMod Pro updates including minor and major
versions for one year at no extra charge.
- jQuery Ready:
We use jQuery all the time in our client and personal development projects.
If you do any jQuery scripting you quickly become familiar with the jQuery ready
function stub you put into almost every single page. We figured, what good is
XMod Pro if it can`t remove that burden. So, now all you have to do is put a
jQueryReady tag in your form or template and XMod Pro will automatically register
the jQuery ready block in your page. Even better it uses a closure to protect the
your code's scope from other script in the page and also allows you to use
the dollar sign ($) shortcut. All you have to do is start entering your
