Borders.InsideHorizontalBorders Property

Provides access to an object that specifies all horizontal borders inside a cell range.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v21.1.Core.dll

Declaration

Border InsideHorizontalBorders { get; }

Property Value

Type Description
Border

A Border object that specifies cell border characteristics.

Remarks

Use the Border.LineStyle and Border.Color properties of the object returned by InsideHorizontalBorders to set the line characteristics of all horizontal borders inside a range of cells simultanously. To specify the inside vertical borders of a cell range, use the Borders.InsideVerticalBorders property.

Note that assigning the InsideHorizontalBorders and Borders.InsideVerticalBorders properties for a single cell does not have an effect.

To specify any other cell borders (e.g., top, bottom, left, right, diagonal and outside borders), use corresponding properties and methods of the Borders object. Access this object via the Formatting.Borders property.

For examples on how to specify formatting for an individual cell and cell range or modify a style, refer to the How to: Format a Cell or Range of Cells or How to: Create or Modify a Style document.

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);
