SpreadsheetFont Interface

Contains the cell font attributes.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v22.1.Core.dll


public interface SpreadsheetFont


The SpreadsheetFont object provides a set of properties that you can use to change the cell font characteristics (SpreadsheetFont.Name, SpreadsheetFont.Size, SpreadsheetFont.FontStyle, SpreadsheetFont.Color, SpreadsheetFont.Script, SpreadsheetFont.Strikethrough and SpreadsheetFont.UnderlineType).

To access the SpreadsheetFont object, use the Formatting.Font 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.

To custom paint cell content in the SpreadsheetControl, handle the SpreadsheetControl.CustomDrawCell event.


This example demonstrates how to format cell font characteristics (e.g., font name, size, color, style) by modifying the SpreadsheetFont object accessed via the Formatting.Font property of the Cell object.

View Example

// Access the Font object.
SpreadsheetFont cellFont = worksheet.Cells["A1"].Font;
// Set the font name.
cellFont.Name = "Times New Roman";
// Set the font size.
cellFont.Size = 14;
// Set the font color.
cellFont.Color = Color.Blue;
// Format text as bold.
cellFont.Bold = true;
// Set font to be underlined.
cellFont.UnderlineType = UnderlineType.Single;
