Use the Item property to access individual columns using index notation.



This example demonstrates how to access columns in a worksheet. Use the Worksheet.Columns property to get a collection of columns contained in a worksheet (the ColumnCollection object). To get an individual column by its index (zero-based) or heading (“A”, “B”, “C”, etc.), use the ColumnCollection.Item property.

using DevExpress.Spreadsheet;
// ...

IWorkbook workbook = spreadsheetControl1.Document;

// Access a collection of columns.
ColumnCollection columns = workbook.Worksheets[0].Columns;

// Access the first column by its index in the collection of columns.
Column firstColumn_byIndex = columns[0];

// Access the first column by its unique name.
Column firstColumn_byName = columns["A"];
