Assigns the rich formatted text to a cell.

Namespace: DevExpress.Export.Xl

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v21.1.Core.dll


void SetRichText(
    XlRichTextString value


Name Type Description
value XlRichTextString

An XlRichTextString object that is a combination of specifically formatted text regions.


Use the SetRichText method to add the rich formatted text to a cell. Such rich text is defined by the XlRichTextString object and represents a cell text divided into separate regions (so-called text runs), each of which has its own set of font characteristics. Each text region is defined by the XlRichTextRun object and is stored in the collection of runs accessible from the XlRichTextString.Runs property.


To apply different fonts to specific regions of the cell text, create an instance of the XlRichTextString class, add the required number of XlRichTextRun objects to the XlRichTextString.Runs collection, and then pass the specified XlRichTextString instance to the SetRichText method as a parameter. For more information, refer to the How to: Apply Rich Formatting to the Cell Text example.
