Returns the collection of worksheets in a workbook.
Use the WorksheetCollection object’s members to access, add, and remove worksheets.
Access a Worksheet
Use the WorksheetCollection.Item property to access a worksheet in a workbook.
Obtain the worksheet at the specified index
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... IWorkbook workbook = spreadsheetControl.Document; // Access the worksheet collection. WorksheetCollection worksheets = workbook.Worksheets; // Access the first worksheet. Worksheet worksheet1 = workbook.Worksheets;
A worksheet index is zero-based. It specifies the worksheet position within a collection.
Obtain the worksheet with a given name
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... IWorkbook workbook = spreadsheetControl.Document; // Access the worksheet collection. WorksheetCollection worksheets = workbook.Worksheets; // Access the worksheet with the specified name. Worksheet worksheet2 = workbook.Worksheets["MainSheet"];
A worksheet name is unique within the collection and is shown on a worksheet tab.
Set an Active Worksheet
Use the WorksheetCollection.ActiveWorksheet property to specify the active worksheet in a workbook.
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... // Set "Sheet2" as the active worksheet. workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = workbook.Worksheets["Sheet2"];
Add a New Worksheet
Use the WorksheetCollection.Add method to add a worksheet to the end of the worksheet collection.
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... // Add a worksheet with the default name. // Default names are "Sheet1", "Sheet2", ..., "SheetN". workbook.Worksheets.Add(); // Add new worksheets with the specified names. workbook.Worksheets.Add().Name = "TestSheet1"; workbook.Worksheets.Add("TestSheet2");
The WorksheetCollection.Insert method allows you to insert a worksheet at the specified position in the collection.
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... // Insert a worksheet at the second position in the workbook. workbook.Worksheets.Insert(1, "TestSheet3"); // Insert a worksheet with the default name at the fourth position in the workbook. workbook.Worksheets.Insert(3);
Delete a Worksheet
Use the following methods to delete a worksheet:
WorksheetCollection.Remove - removes a specific worksheet from the collection.
WorksheetCollection.RemoveAt - removes the worksheet with the specified index from the collection.
A workbook must contain at least one visible worksheet.
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... // Delete the first worksheet from the workbook. workbook.Worksheets.RemoveAt(0); // Delete the "Sheet2" worksheet from the workbook. workbook.Worksheets.Remove(workbook.Worksheets["Sheet2"]);
