The Spreadsheet control provides the Reading view mode that simplifies viewing documents on mobile devices. When the control in this view mode, all documents are opened in the read-only mode, and the ribbon toolbar is replaced with the specific toolbar for the Reading view mode. The Reading view mode is an alternative to the Editing view mode - the view mode that provides the standard full-featured Spreadsheet.

Use the Mode to switch between the Reading and Editing view modes.
