    Setting the Row Height or Column Width
    In This Topic

    You can set the row height or column width as a specified number of pixels. Each sheet uses and lets you set a default size, making all rows or columns in the sheet the same size. You can override that setting by setting the value for individual rows or columns.

    Example of Row Higher and Column Wider

    Users can change the row height or column width by dragging the header lines between rows or columns.

    For more details refer to the Column.Width method or Row.Height method.

    Using the Properties Window

    1. At design time, in the Properties window, select the Spread component.
    2. Select the Sheets property.
    3. Click the button to display the SheetView Collection Editor.
    4. In the Members list, select the sheet for which to set the column width for a column.
    5. In the properties list, set the Columns property (or Row property) and then click the button to display the Cell, Column, and Row Editor.
    6. Click the column heading of the column for which you want to set the width (or row for the height).
    7. In the properties list, set the Width property (Height property for the row).
    8. Click OK to close the Cell, Column, and Row Editor.
    9. Click OK to close the SheetView Collection Editor.

    Using a Shortcut

    Set the Columns shortcut object Width property. You can use -1 for all columns (Columns[-1]).

    Example

    This example code sets the second column’s width to 100 pixels.

    C#
    Copy Code
    // Set second column width to 100.
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns[1].Width = 100;
    VB
    Copy Code
    ' Set second column width to 100.
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Columns(1).Width = 100

    Using Code

    Set the Width property for a Column object.

    Example

    This example code sets the second column’s width to 100 pixels.

    C#
    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column Col1;
    Col1 = fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns[1];
    Col1.Width = 100;
    VB
    Copy Code
    Dim Col1 As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column

    Col1.Width = 100
