XlColor Class

Represents a color used in the spreadsheet document.

Namespace: DevExpress.Export.Xl

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

Declaration

public class XlColor

Remarks

The XlColor object can be used in the following cases:

Excel Export API supports implicit conversion between the XlColor class and the Color structure, so that you can utilize predefined system-defined colors obtained by using the corresponding static properties of the Color structure to set the color of spreadsheet elements. To create a custom color from the RGB component values, use the static XlColor.FromArgb method of the XlColor class or the Color structure. To define a new color based on one of the theme colors, utilize the static XlColor.FromTheme method.

The example below demonstrates how to specify a solid and pattern fill of the cell background.

// Create a new worksheet.
using(IXlSheet sheet = document.CreateSheet()) {

    using(IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow()) {
        using(IXlCell cell = row.CreateCell()) {
            // Fill the cell background using the predefined color.
            cell.ApplyFormatting(XlFill.SolidFill(Color.Beige));
        }
        using(IXlCell cell = row.CreateCell()) {
            // Fill the cell background using the custom RGB color.
            cell.ApplyFormatting(XlFill.SolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xff, 0x99, 0x66)));
        }
        using(IXlCell cell = row.CreateCell()) {
            // Fill the cell background using the theme color.
            cell.ApplyFormatting(XlFill.SolidFill(XlColor.FromTheme(XlThemeColor.Accent3, 0.4)));
        }
    }

    using(IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow()) {
        using(IXlCell cell = row.CreateCell()) {
            // Specify the cell background pattern using predefined colors.
            cell.ApplyFormatting(XlFill.PatternFill(XlPatternType.DarkDown, Color.Red, Color.White));
        }
        using(IXlCell cell = row.CreateCell()) {
            // Specify the cell background pattern using custom RGB colors.
            cell.ApplyFormatting(XlFill.PatternFill(XlPatternType.DarkTrellis, Color.FromArgb(0xff, 0xff, 0x66), Color.FromArgb(0x66, 0x99, 0xff)));
        }
        using(IXlCell cell = row.CreateCell()) {
            // Specify the cell background pattern using theme colors.
            cell.ApplyFormatting(XlFill.PatternFill(XlPatternType.LightHorizontal, XlColor.FromTheme(XlThemeColor.Accent1, 0.2), XlColor.FromTheme(XlThemeColor.Light2, 0.0)));
        }
    }
}
