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

Remarks

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.

Examples

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;
range.EndUpdateFormatting(rangeFormatting);
