    Highlighting Rules
    In This Topic

    You can use this rule to highlight data that meets one of the following conditions:

    After you choose one of the options above, enter a value or formula against which each cell is compared. If the cell data satisfies that criteria, then the formatting is applied.

    You can select a predefined highlight style or create a custom highlight style. The following rules are highlight style rules:

    This figure illustrates the following example.

    An Example of Highlighting Rule

    Using Code

    1. Set the properties of the rule class.
    2. Apply the formatting.


    This example code creates the between values rule and uses the SetConditionalFormatting method to apply the rule.

    Copy Code
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].Value = 3;
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[1, 0].Value = 2;
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[1, 1].Value = 5;
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 2].Value = 1;
            private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
              FarPoint.Win.Spread.BetweenValuesConditionalFormattingRule between = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.BetweenValuesConditionalFormattingRule(true, 10, false, 20, false);
            between.FirstValue = 10;
            between.SecondValue = 20;
            between.IsNotBetween = true;
            between.BackColor = Color.Bisque;
            fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SetConditionalFormatting(1, 1, between);
    Copy Code
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).Value = 3
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(1, 0).Value = 2
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(1, 1).Value = 5
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 2).Value = 1
        End Sub
        Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim between As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.BetweenValuesConditionalFormattingRule(True, 10, False, 20, False)
            between.FirstValue = 10
            between.SecondValue = 20
            between.IsNotBetween = True
            between.BackColor = Color.Bisque
            fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SetConditionalFormatting(1, 1, between)
        End Sub
