    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionUnit = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionUnit.Row

    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionBackColor = Color.Yellow

    Hello Harish,

    You need to set SelectionStyle property of Sheets to SelectionColors as well along with other properties.


                fpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionUnit = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionUnit.Row
                fpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionStyle = FarPoint.Win.Spread.SelectionStyles.SelectionColors
                fpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionBackColor = Color.Yellow


    Hope this will help you. Thanks.

    This worked but the Selected Cell is still in white. I want the whole row to be in yellow including the selected cell.  How do I make that yellow as well ?

    Hello Harish,

    In addition to the above code you may add the some code in Spread's LeaveCell event to set the backcolor for selected cell and to reset it while leaving the cell.

        Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            FpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionUnit = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionUnit.Row
            FpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionStyle = FarPoint.Win.Spread.SelectionStyles.SelectionColors
            FpSpread1.Sheets(0).SelectionBackColor = Color.Yellow
        End Sub

        Private Sub FpSpread1_LeaveCell(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As FarPoint.Win.Spread.LeaveCellEventArgs) Handles FpSpread1.LeaveCell
            FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(e.NewRow, e.NewColumn).BackColor = Color.Yellow
            FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(e.Row, e.Column).BackColor = Color.White
        End Sub

    I hope it will help you.
