    Customizing the Appearance of a Cell
    In This Topic

    When you work with cells in the data area of the spreadsheet, you can work with the objects using the short cuts in code (Cell and Cells classes) or you can work directly with the model. Most developers who are not creating extensive customizations find it easier to work with the shortcut objects.

    These tasks relate to setting the appearance of individual cells in the data area of the spreadsheet:

    Note: The word "appearance" describes the general look of the cell, not the settings in the Appearance class, which contains only a few settings and is used for the appearance of several parts of the interface. Most of the appearance settings for a cell are in the StyleInfo class.

    Settings applied to a particular cell override the settings that are set at the column or row level. For a more detailed explanation, refer to Object Parentage.

    Other cell-level appearance settings are set by the cell type. For more information on settings related to cell types, refer to Customizing Interaction with Cell Types. You can edit properties of the Cells classes in the Properties window (in Spread Designer or in Visual Studio .NET). For more information on the Cells, Columns, and Rows Editor that is available from the Properties window, refer to the explanation of this editor in the Spread Designer Guide.
