Property Value

Type Description
Color

A Color structure that specifies the border line color.

Use the Color property to set or obtain the cell border color. If you specify the Color for a border without setting it’s Border.LineStyle, the border line style will be automatically set to BorderLineStyle.Thin. Change the border’s Border.LineStyle if required.

For more information on how to customize cell borders, refer to the How to: Add and Remove Cell Borders example.

Example

This example demonstrates how to specify different borders for individual cells and ranges of cells by modifying the Borders object.

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

// Set each particular border for the cell.
Cell cellB2 = worksheet.Cells["B2"];
Borders cellB2Borders = cellB2.Borders;
cellB2Borders.LeftBorder.LineStyle = BorderLineStyle.MediumDashDot;
cellB2Borders.LeftBorder.Color = Color.Pink;
cellB2Borders.TopBorder.LineStyle = BorderLineStyle.MediumDashDotDot;
cellB2Borders.TopBorder.Color = Color.HotPink;
cellB2Borders.RightBorder.LineStyle = BorderLineStyle.MediumDashed;
cellB2Borders.RightBorder.Color = Color.DeepPink;
cellB2Borders.BottomBorder.LineStyle = BorderLineStyle.Medium;
cellB2Borders.BottomBorder.Color = Color.Red;
cellB2Borders.DiagonalBorderType = DiagonalBorderType.Up;
cellB2Borders.DiagonalBorderLineStyle = BorderLineStyle.Thick;
cellB2Borders.DiagonalBorderColor = Color.Red;

// Set diagonal borders for the cell.
Cell cellC4 = worksheet.Cells["C4"];
Borders cellC4Borders = cellC4.Borders;
cellC4Borders.SetDiagonalBorders(Color.Orange, BorderLineStyle.Double, DiagonalBorderType.UpAndDown);

// Set all outside borders for the cell in one step. 
Cell cellD6 = worksheet.Cells["D6"];
cellD6.Borders.SetOutsideBorders(Color.Gold, BorderLineStyle.Double);
// Set all borders for the range of cells in one step.
CellRange range1 = worksheet.Range["B8:F13"];
range1.Borders.SetAllBorders(Color.Green, BorderLineStyle.Double);

// Set all inside and outside borders separately for the range of cells.
CellRange range2 = worksheet.Range["C15:F18"];
range2.SetInsideBorders(Color.SkyBlue, BorderLineStyle.MediumDashed);
range2.Borders.SetOutsideBorders(Color.DeepSkyBlue, BorderLineStyle.Medium);

// Set all horizontal and vertical borders separately for the range of cells.
CellRange range3 = worksheet.Range["D21:F23"];
Formatting range3Formatting = range3.BeginUpdateFormatting();
Borders range3Borders = range3Formatting.Borders;
range3Borders.InsideHorizontalBorders.LineStyle = BorderLineStyle.MediumDashDot;
range3Borders.InsideHorizontalBorders.Color = Color.DarkBlue;
range3Borders.InsideVerticalBorders.LineStyle = BorderLineStyle.MediumDashDotDot;
range3Borders.InsideVerticalBorders.Color = Color.Blue;
range3.EndUpdateFormatting(range3Formatting);

// Set each particular border for the range of cell. 
CellRange range4 = worksheet.Range["E25:F26"];
Formatting range4Formatting = range4.BeginUpdateFormatting();
Borders range4Borders = range4Formatting.Borders;
range4Borders.SetOutsideBorders(Color.Black, BorderLineStyle.Thick);
range4Borders.LeftBorder.Color = Color.Violet;
range4Borders.TopBorder.Color = Color.Violet;
range4Borders.RightBorder.Color = Color.DarkViolet;
range4Borders.BottomBorder.Color = Color.DarkViolet;
range4Borders.DiagonalBorderType = DiagonalBorderType.UpAndDown;
range4Borders.DiagonalBorderLineStyle = BorderLineStyle.MediumDashed;
range4Borders.DiagonalBorderColor = Color.BlueViolet;
range4.EndUpdateFormatting(range4Formatting);
