Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to AutoFitMergedCellRowHeight
WinForms Controls SpreadsheetControlOptions
Office File API DocumentOptions


When you merge a cell that contains wrapped text with the other cells in a row, the height of the resulting merged cell cannot be adjusted automatically to accommodate cell content. To avoid this behavior and enable AutoFit for rows that have cells merged across, set the AutoFitMergedCellRowHeight property to true.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to enable the AutoFitMergedCellRowHeight option for the WinForms Spreadsheet control:

spreadsheetControl.Options.Cells.AutoFitMergedCellRowHeight = true;

Use the code below to activate this option for a non-visual Workbook instance.

using(var workbook = new Workbook())
    workbook.Options.Cells.AutoFitMergedCellRowHeight = true;
