If the layout is being restored from storage and the StoreFormatRules option is set to true the control will try to load the conditional formatting rules from storage. If these options cannot be found in the stored layout, the control’s existing formatting rules are not cleared. Otherwise, the existing formatting rules are cleared before the layout restoration.
