    Saving and Loading Map Files
    In This Topic

    You can load or save the input maps to an XML file. Use the SaveXmlInputMapFile method to save to a file and the LoadXmlInputMapFile to load from an input map file.

    Spread installs a default Excel compatibility XML file to the input map folder.

    Using Code

    1. Create an input map.
    2. Save the input map to a file.


    This example saves an input map to an XML file.

    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadView sv = fpSpread1.GetRootWorkbook();
                    FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMap im = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMap();
                    im.Put(new FarPoint.Win.Spread.Keystroke(Keys.Enter, Keys.None), FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadActions.MoveToNextRow);
                    sv.SetInputMap(FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMapMode.WhenAncestorOfFocused, im);
                    fpSpread1.SaveXmlInputMapFile("file.xml", FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMapMode.WhenAncestorOfFocused, FarPoint.Win.Spread.OperationMode.Normal);
    Copy Code
    Dim sv As FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadView = fpSpread1.GetRootWorkbook
                    Dim im As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMap()
                    im.Put(New FarPoint.Win.Spread.Keystroke(Keys.Enter, Keys.None), FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadActions.MoveToNextRow)
                    sv.SetInputMap(FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMapMode.WhenAncestorOfFocused, im)
                    fpSpread1.SaveXmlInputMapFile("file.xml", FarPoint.Win.Spread.InputMapMode.WhenAncestorOfFocused,
