Gets or sets the rotation angle of the cell content.
An integer value that specifies the rotation angle of the cell content (in degrees). The value must be between -90 and 90.
Use the RotationAngle property to rotate the text vertically to achieve the best layout within a cell.
To set other alignment characteristics for a cell or range of cells (e.g., horizontal and vertical alignment type, indent, values indicating whether the text should be wrapped and shrunk in a cell), use the corresponding properties of the Alignment object. Access this object via the Formatting.Alignment property.
- To specify the data alignment of an individual cell, access the Alignment object using the cell’s Formatting.Alignment property directly.
- To specify the data alignment of a cell range, modify the Alignment object within the CellRange.BeginUpdateFormatting - CellRange.EndUpdateFormatting method pair.
- To share the same alignment settings between multiple cells in one step, apply the style with the specified alignment to the required cells. To specify the alignment for a cell style, access the Style object from the IWorkbook.Styles collection and use this style’s Formatting.Alignment property within the Formatting.BeginUpdate-Formatting.EndUpdate paired methods to access and modify the Alignment object.
