    Spread Designer helps you design your Spread component by letting you see most of the settings you make at the time you make them, and by letting you access settings that you cannot access in Visual Studio at design time. You can use Spread Designer for many aspects of design, including customizing the appearance of your component. You can also load data into the sheets in your component, if you want to do so. The Spread Designer lets you work with the design in a data area that simulates the actual spreadsheet. By selecting items and changing properties, you can see the result immediately in the data area.

    The following topics describe some specific tasks you need to do in Spread Designer to customize the FpSpread component by selecting part of the spreadsheet and changing the properties either in the Properties window or a dedicated dialog.

    For more information on the dialogs and editors, refer to the Spread Designer Dialogs and Spread Designer Editors.

    For more information on working with the design once you have completed it, refer to Working with the Design.
