Gets or sets the default table style.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v18.2.Core.dll


TableStyle DefaultStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A TableStyle object.


If the default table style is not explicitly specified, the DefaultStyle property returns the None table style. This is the built-in table style that specifies no formatting for a table. This style is applied to a table to clear its formatting and serves as the base when a new style is created by the TableStyleCollection.Add method. The image below shows the table appearance when the None table style is applied.


You can set the DefaultStyle property to any table style contained in the collection.


This example demonstrates how to specify the default table style. This style is used in the following cases.

  • If you create a table and do not explicitly specify a style to be applied to this table, the default style will be automatically applied to the created table.
  • If you remove a table style that has been previously applied to a table, the table style will be changed to the default style.

A complete sample project is available at

Private Sub ChangeDefaultTableStyle(ByVal workbook As IWorkbook, ByVal styleName As String)
    ' Set the style to be applied to created tables by default.
    workbook.TableStyles.DefaultStyle = workbook.TableStyles(styleName)
End Sub
