ShapeTextParagraphFormat Interface

Contains paragraph settings for a shape text range.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v23.1.Core.dll


public interface ShapeTextParagraphFormat


Use the ShapeTextRange.ParagraphFormat property to retrieve the ShapeTextParagraphFormat object.

The ShapeTextParagraphFormat properties allow you to specify the alignment, indent, and spacing for a ShapeTextRange object. To change the alignment of a whole ShapeText, use the ShapeText.VerticalAnchor and ShapeText.HorizontalAnchor properties.

When you insert a new text range in a shape, its ShapeTextParagraphFormat properties have the same values as the existing ShapeTextFont object’s paragraph options.


If a current ShapeTextRange object contains multiple paragraphs, the ShapeTextParagraphFormat properties return the first paragraph’s values.
