Some applications allow you to view page breaks for printing. You can use code to add visual indicators for page breaks in Spread for Windows Forms. There are several ways to add visible page breaks in Spread Windows Forms. You can add a border to the row or column, a backcolor to the header, or an image to the header. This example adds visual indicators for the row page breaks. SpreadWinPageBreaks Row Page Breaks Use the following steps to create this example:

  1. Create a form.
  2. Add Spread and three buttons to the form.
  3. Add a list box to the form.
  4. Add the following code.

C#

private void Printing1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            fpSpread1.Open("C:\\\Program Files (x86)\\\GrapeCity\\\Spread Studio 9\\\Common\\\CostOfGoodSold.xml");

            foreach (object o in i)  
            {  
                listBox1.Items.Add(o);  
                // Set a border for the row  
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[(int)o, 0, (int)o, fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns.Count - 1].Border = new FarPoint.Win.LineBorder(Color.Red, 2, false, true, false, false);

                // Set the color for a header cell  
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].RowHeader.Cells[(int)o, 0].BackColor = Color.Red;  
            }  
        }  

        private void button3_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {

                // Add an image to the header cell  
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].RowHeader.Cells[(int)o, 0].CellType = imagecell;  
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].RowHeader.Cells[(int)o, 0].Value = image;  
            }  
        }

You can use the GetColumnPageBreaks method to get column page breaks. Use the following steps to create an example that gets the column page breaks and sets a border, header color, or adds an image to the header:

  1. Create a form.
  2. Add Spread and three buttons to the form.
  3. Add a list box to the form.
  4. Add the following code.

C#
