Provides access to an object that specifies the top border of a cell or cell range.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v20.1.Core.dll

Declaration

Border TopBorder { get; }
ReadOnly Property TopBorder As Border

Property Value

Type Description
Border

A Border object that specifies characteristics of a cell border.

Remarks

Use the Border.LineStyle and Border.Color properties of the object returned by TopBorder to set characteristics of the cell's top border.

To specify each border of a cell or cell range individually (e.g., top, bottom, left, right, diagonal, inside and outside borders), use the corresponding properties and methods of the Borders object. Access this object via the cell or cell range 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, respectively.

Examples

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);
