    ButtonDrawMode Property (FpSpread)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets whether to display buttons in button and combo box cells in the component.
    Public Property ButtonDrawMode As ButtonDrawModes
    Dim instance As FpSpread
    Dim value As ButtonDrawModes
    instance.ButtonDrawMode = value
    value = instance.ButtonDrawMode
    public ButtonDrawModes ButtonDrawMode {get; set;}

    Property Value

    ButtonDrawModes setting that specifies how to display buttons in cells

    Use this property to limit where buttons are displayed in the spreadsheet. You can combine values using the OR logical operator. You can also perform the equivalent of OR-ing by adding the numeric values 1 (current cell), 2 (current column), 4 (current row), 8 (always button), and 16 (always combo box) for the combination you want.

    When the OperationMode property is set to Row Mode, RowMode uses the ButtonDrawMode property. The active row is always painted with a selection bar. The buttons are painted or not painted based on the setting of the ButtonDrawMode property. (Note, in Spread COM, RowMode ignored the ButtonDrawMode property. Before editing the active row, the active row was painted with a selection bar but without buttons. After editing the active row, the active row was painted with buttons but without a selection bar. In Spread for Windows Forms, there is no distinction between before and after editing.)

    Create a button or combo box cell using the ButtonCellType or ComboBoxCellType. class For an overview of these graphical cell types, refer to Working with Graphical Cell Types.

    This example specifies whether to display a button in a combo box cell.
