    SetAnchor Method (BaseSheetSelectionModel)
    In This Topic
    Specifies the anchor (or first cell) in the selection of cells.
    Public Overridable Sub SetAnchor( _
       ByVal row As Integer, _
       ByVal column As Integer _
    Dim instance As BaseSheetSelectionModel
    Dim row As Integer
    Dim column As Integer
    instance.SetAnchor(row, column)
    public virtual void SetAnchor( 
       int row,
       int column


    Row index of the first cell in the selection
    Column index of the first cell in the selection

    The extent of the selection is determined by two numbers, the anchor (or first cell) and the extent (or farthest cell). Specify the anchor by using the SetAnchor method (or AnchorRow and AnchorColumn properties). Specify the extent by using the ExtendSelection method (or LeadRow and LeadColumn properties). Or use the SetSelection method to define both. Between (and including) the anchor and the extent is the selection or selected range of cells.

    This example specifies the first cell selected in the range.

    selModel = (FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.BaseSheetSelectionModel)fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Models.Selection;
    selModel.SetAnchor(1, 1);
    selModel.ExtendSelection(3, 3)
    Private Sub MenuItem1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MenuItem1.Click
    Dim selModel As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.BaseSheetSelectionModel
    selModel = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Models.Selection
    selModel.SetAnchor(1, 1)
