Gets or sets a value indicating whether or not to search for cells whose contents are exactly alike.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v21.1.Core.dll


public bool MatchEntireCellContents { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true, to restrict the search to the entire cell content; otherwise, false.


Set the MatchEntireCellContents property to true to search for an exact match of characters specified by the search term. For example, searching for “Order” matches the cell values “Order” or “order” (if capitalization is not taken into account), but not “Orders” or “Order Details” or other values containing the specific text anywhere inside the cell.
