    Adding a Row or Column
    In This Topic

    You can add one or more columns or rows to a sheet, and specify where the column or row is added. You can use the methods in the SheetView class.

    If you set the cell type for the column and a row is inserted, the new cells in the column use the cell type for the entire column. If you set the cell type for individual cells and a new row is inserted, then the new cells use the default cell type, and you would need to set the cell type for each of the new cells.

    For more details refer to the SheetView.AddRows method or SheetView.AddColumns method.

    Using a Shortcut

    Example

    This example code adds two columns before column 6.

    C#
    Copy Code
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].AddColumns(6,2);
    VB
    Copy Code
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).AddColumns(6,2)

    Using Code

    1. Use the AddRows or AddColumns method for a SheetView object.
    2. Set the column or row parameter to specify the column or row before which to add the columns or rows.
    3. Set the count parameter to specify the number of columns or rows to add.

    Example

    This example code adds two columns before column 6.

    C#

    VB
    Copy Code

    Sheet0 = fpSpread1.Sheets(0)
    Sheet0.AddColumns(6, 2)
