Provides access to the cell content alignment settings.
The Alignment object provides a set of properties that you can use to align data contained within a cell (Alignment.Horizontal, Alignment.Vertical, Alignment.Indent, Alignment.WrapText, Alignment.ShrinkToFit and Alignment.RotationAngle).
To access the Alignment object, use 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 Range.BeginUpdateFormatting - Range.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.
