    I'm using Spread for windows, 2.5.2009.2005, and I want to be able to wrap my words in a cell, to have a cr/lf, how can I accomplish this task?

    Thanks in advance,

    maybe you can use System.Environment.NewLine  ?

    That doesn't work in cells, but the text will wrap in a columnheader. What would the solution be?

    Hello John,

    You can use the TextCellType with WordWrap and Multiline property set to true in order to wrap text in Spread cells along with setting the height of the Row using GetPreferredHeight method.

    Here is the code to achieve the same:-


                FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType txt = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType();

                txt.WordWrap = true;

                txt.Multiline = true;

                fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns[0].CellType = txt;

                fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].Text = "Longggggggggg texttt withhh neww lineeees..";

                fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Rows[fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.ActiveRowIndex].Height = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Rows[fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.ActiveRowIndex].GetPreferredHeight();


    Hope this will help you. Thanks.
