    Icon Set Rule
    In This Topic

    You can set rules that display certain icons when a cell value is greater than, equal to, or less than a value.

    You can use built-in icon sets for the rule. You can also specify individual icons to use in the icon set with the IconRuleSet property and the IconSetConditionalFormattingRule class. You can use custom icons with the AddIcon method and the CustomIconContainer property.

    The following figure illustrates cells that display the built-in icons.

    Spreadsheet cells with built-in icons

    Using Code

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


    This example code creates an icon set 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 = 8;
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[1, 0].Value = 5;
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[2, 0].Value = 10;
                fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[3, 0].Value = 1;        
            private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.CellRange celRange1 = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.CellRange(0, 0, 4, 1);
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.IconSetConditionalFormattingRule rule = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.IconSetConditionalFormattingRule(FarPoint.Win.Spread.ConditionalFormattingIconSetStyle.ThreeRimmedTrafficLights );           
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].SetConditionalFormatting(new FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.CellRange[] { celRange1 }, rule);          
    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 = 8
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(1, 0).Value = 5
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(2, 0).Value = 10
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(3, 0).Value = 1
        End Sub
        Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim celRange1 As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.CellRange(0, 0, 4, 1)
            Dim rule As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.IconSetConditionalFormattingRule(FarPoint.Win.Spread.ConditionalFormattingIconSetStyle.ThreeRimmedTrafficLights)
            fpSpread1.Sheets(0).SetConditionalFormatting(New FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.CellRange() {celRange1}, rule)
          End Sub
