Property Value

Type Description

A PatternType enumeration member that specifies the pattern for the cell shading. Default is None.


To specify the cell background characteristics, use the Fill.BackgroundColor, PatternType and Fill.PatternColor properties of the Fill object.

By default, the PatternType property is set to PatternType.None. When you set the Fill.BackgroundColor property, the PatternType property value is automatically changed to PatternType.Solid.

To access the Fill object, use the Formatting.Fill 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.


The following example specifies font and background colors for an individual cell and cell range:

using DevExpress.Spreadsheet;
using System.Drawing;
// ...

// Format an individual cell.
worksheet.Cells["A1"].Font.Color = Color.Red;
worksheet.Cells["A1"].FillColor = Color.Yellow;

// Format a cell range.
CellRange range = worksheet.Range["C3:D4"];
Formatting rangeFormatting = range.BeginUpdateFormatting();
rangeFormatting.Font.Color = Color.Blue;
rangeFormatting.Fill.BackgroundColor = Color.LightBlue;
rangeFormatting.Fill.PatternType = PatternType.LightHorizontal;
rangeFormatting.Fill.PatternColor = Color.Violet;
