    Creating a Complex Border with Multiple Lines
    In This Topic

    You can create a cell border with multiple lines using the complex border.

    Using Code

    Use the CompoundArray property of the ComplexBorderSide class to create multiple-line borders for a cell.

    Review the following examples for more information.

    Example

    This example code creates a ComplexBorderSide that has two underlines (two lines with a blank space in between) each taking a third of the width of the pen.

    C#
    Copy Code
    // Create a new complex border side with two lines.
    FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide bottomborder = new FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide(true, Color.Black, 3, System.Drawing.Drawing2D.DashStyle.Solid, null, new Single[] {0f, 0.33f, 0.66f, 1f});
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[3, 7].Border = new FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder(null, null, null, bottomborder);
    VB
    Copy Code
    ' Create a new complex border side with two lines.
    Dim bottomborder As New FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide(Color.Black, 3, System.Drawing.Drawing2D.DashStyle.Solid, Nothing, New Single() {0, 0.33, 0.66, 1})
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(3, 7).Border = New FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder(Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, bottomborder)

    Example

    This example code creates a ComplexBorderSide that has three lines with varying amounts of thickness and with some blank space on either edge of the pen.

    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[3, 7].Border = new FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder(null, null, null, bottomborder);
    VB
    Copy Code
    ' Create a new complex border side with three lines.
    Dim bottomborder As New FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorderSide(True, Color.Black, 3, System.Drawing.Drawing2D.DashStyle.Solid, Nothing, New Single() {0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.6, 0.7, 0.9})
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(3, 7).Border = New FarPoint.Win.ComplexBorder(Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, bottomborder)
