    Gets the formatted text in the cell using the IFormatter object for the cell.
    Public Function GetText( _
       ByVal row As Integer, _
       ByVal column As Integer _
    ) As String
    Dim instance As SheetView
    Dim row As Integer
    Dim column As Integer
    Dim value As String
    value = instance.GetText(row, column)
    public string GetText( 
       int row,
       int column


    Row index of the cell
    Column index of the cell

    Return Value

    String containing the text contents of the cell

    This method returns the formatted value of the cell.

    Compare the values returned from this method with the values returned from the GetValue method. For example, for date-time cells, the GetText method returns the formatted date and time value; the GetValue method returns a DateTime object for the date and time.

    Besides using this method, you can get or set the data in a cell using various properties of the sheet (SheetView object) or properties of the cell (Cell object). For more information, see Handling Data Using Sheet Methods and Handling Data Using Cell Properties.

    Remember that the data may be displayed differently in a cell depending on the cell type. For more information, see Understanding Cell Type Effects on Displaying Data.

    This example returns the text for the specified cell.
    FarPoint.Web.Spread.SheetView sv;
    sv = FpSpread1.ActiveSheetView;
    string s;
    s = sv.GetText(0, 0);
    Response.Write("The text in the cell is " + s);
    Dim sv As FarPoint.Web.Spread.SheetView
    sv = FpSpread1.ActiveSheetView
    Dim s As String
    s = sv.GetText(0, 0)
    Response.Write("The text in the cell is " & s)
