Example


In This Topic
    Multiline Property (TextCellType)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets whether multiple lines of text are allowed.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Property Multiline As Boolean
    'Usage
     
    Dim instance As TextCellType
    Dim value As Boolean
     
    instance.Multiline = value
     
    value = instance.Multiline
    public bool Multiline {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Boolean: true if multiple lines of text are allowed; false otherwise
    Remarks

    When set to true, multiple lines are allowed, but text is not automatically wrapped to new lines when the number of characters exceeds the width of the cell. To wrap lines of text automatically, set the WordWrap property (inherited from EditCellType). Otherwise, to wrap lines of text, be sure to type in carriage-return characters to force the text to the new lines.

    Example
    This example specifies how text can be displayed including the letter case, the length, and whether it can wrap to multiple lines.
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType txt = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType();
    txt.CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper;
    txt.CharacterSet = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.CharacterSet.Ascii;
    txt.HotkeyPrefix = System.Drawing.Text.HotkeyPrefix.Show;
    txt.MaxLength = 40;
    txt.Multiline = true;
    txt.PasswordChar = Convert.ToChar("*");
    txt.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Horizontal;
    txt.Static = false;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].CellType = txt;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].Text = "This is a text cell.  It can provide a wide range of" + " functionality for handling
    a large amount of data that a user might want to include" + " in a single cell.";
    Dim txt As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType()
    txt.CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper
    txt.CharacterSet = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.CharacterSet.Ascii
    txt.HotkeyPrefix = System.Drawing.Text.HotkeyPrefix.Show
    txt.MaxLength = 40
    txt.Multiline = True
    txt.PasswordChar = "*"
    txt.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Horizontal
    txt.Static = False
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).CellType = txt
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).Text = "This is a text cell.  It can provide a wide range of" & _
    " functionality for handling a large amount of data that a user might want to include" & _
    " in a single cell."
