How to: Insert a Cell or Cell Range

This example demonstrates how to insert cells into a worksheet. To do this, use the Worksheet.InsertCells method. Pass a cell or cell range where you want to insert new cells, and the InsertCellsMode.ShiftCellsDown or InsertCellsMode.ShiftCellsRight enumeration member to specify how to shift other cells.

using DevExpress.Spreadsheet;
// ...

IWorkbook workbook = spreadsheetControl1.Document;
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

// Insert a cell into the C5 position, shifting other cells in the same column down.
worksheet.InsertCells(worksheet.Cells["C5"], InsertCellsMode.ShiftCellsDown);

// Insert cells into the location of the H11:I12 range, shifting other cells in the same row to the right.
worksheet.InsertCells(worksheet.Range["H11:I12"], InsertCellsMode.ShiftCellsRight);
