    Drawing (Rendering) Style
    In This Topic

    You can customize the corner renderer, which draws the sheet corner.

    There are two pre-defined corner renderers in Spread.

    The default renderer draws the sheet corner with or without Windows XP style depending on the setting of the system.

    The enhanced corner renderer always draws the sheet corner with an appearance similar to Microsoft Excel 2007.

    Example

    This example lists the methods that are used to create a custom corner renderer.
