Property Value

Type Description

true, to apply special formatting to the first column of the table; otherwise, false.


If the ShowTableStyleFirstColumn property is set to true, the appearance of the table's first column is specified by the following elements of the style applied to the table.

If the ShowTableStyleFirstColumn property is set to false, the first table is formated identically to the other columns of the table.

The following example demonstrates the creation of a table style with special formatting for the table's first column and how to apply this formatting to the table.

using DevExpress.Spreadsheet;
// ...

TableStyle tableStyle = workbook.TableStyles[BuiltInTableStyleId.TableStyleLight15].Duplicate();

try {
    TableStyleElements tbstElements = tableStyle.TableStyleElements;

    tbstElements[TableStyleElementType.FirstColumn].Fill.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(248, 164, 94);
    tbstElements[TableStyleElementType.FirstColumn].Borders.SetAllBorders(Color.FromArgb(151, 71, 6), BorderLineStyle.Thin);
    tbstElements[TableStyleElementType.FirstHeaderCell].Fill.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(252, 213, 180);
    tbstElements[TableStyleElementType.FirstTotalCell].Fill.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(244, 117, 12);
finally {

Table newTable = workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet.Tables.Add(spreadsheetControl1.Selection, true);
newTable.Style = tableStyle;

newTable.ShowTableStyleFirstColumn = true;
