They both serve the same function. They both enable or disable a devexpress web control.

The only difference is that when ClientEnabled is used the control still exists in the javascript domain and is still callable by client-side scripting.

Where as, for the Enabled property if set to false. Devexpress takes the liberty to eliminating its existence in the javascript domain. Hence is called there will be an object reference not found.
