How to: Set Page Margins

  • 2 minutes to read

Important

You need a license for the DevExpress Office File API Subscription or DevExpress Universal Subscription to use these examples in production code.

This example demonstrates how to set margins of worksheet pages via properties of the Margins object. Use the Worksheet.ActiveView.Margins property to return this object. To select units of measure for worksheet page margins, set the Workbook.Unit property to the required DocumentUnit enumeration member.

Note

The WorksheetView.Margins settings are used when worksheet pages are printed. To learn how to specify other worksheet print options, see the How to: Specify Print Settings document.

// Select a unit of measure used within the workbook.
workbook.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch;

// Access page margins.
Margins pageMargins = workbook.Worksheets[0].ActiveView.Margins;

// Specify page margins.
pageMargins.Left = 1;
pageMargins.Top = 1.5F;
pageMargins.Right = 1;
pageMargins.Bottom = 0.8F;

// Specify header and footer margins.
pageMargins.Header = 1;
pageMargins.Footer = 0.4F;
