    We are using the Spread Web form control in our project. There is a scenario we should override the formula cell. When we place the cursor in the cell, it is showing the formula to the user and user have to delete the formula manually.

    Is there way to hide the formula when the user selects that cell. We found this is achievable in Spread Winforms control. Attached a video on our requirement. Please do the needful.

    Hi Jonathan,
    For this, you need to handle the EditStart event and select complete text for InputElement if the text is formula.
    Please refer to the following demo sample for reference:
    FpSpread1.addEventListener("EditStart", function (e) {
    setTimeout(function () {
    var defaulClassName = "DefaultInput DefaultTextEditor";
    var input = e.cell.querySelector("input");
    // check if the cell contains formula with default editor
    if (input.className == defaulClassName && input.value.indexOf("=") > -1) {
    }, true)
