How to: Format Cells that are Between or Not Between Two Values
- 2 minutes to read
This example demonstrates how to apply the conditional formatting rule, highlighting cells that are between or not between two values.
To create a new conditional formatting rule represented by the RangeConditionalFormatting object, access the collection of conditional formats from the Worksheet.ConditionalFormattings property and call the ConditionalFormattingCollection.AddRangeConditionalFormatting method. Pass the following parameters:
- A CellRange object that defines a range of cells to which the rule is applied.
- A condition specified by one of the ConditionalFormattingRangeCondition enumeration values.
- A string representing the low bound of the data subset inside or outside of which, formatted cells are located. Notice that the string can determine a formula to evaluate the lowest value.
- A string representing the high bound of the data subset inside or outside of which, formatted cells are located. Notice that the string can determine a formula to evaluate the highest value.
- Specify formatting options to be applied to cells if the condition is true using the ISupportsFormatting.Formatting property of the RangeConditionalFormatting object. Set the background and font colors.
' Create the rule to identify values below 7 and above 19 in cells F2 through F15. Dim cfRule As RangeConditionalFormatting = worksheet.ConditionalFormattings.AddRangeConditionalFormatting(worksheet.Range("$F$2:$F$15"), ConditionalFormattingRangeCondition.Outside, "7", "19") ' Specify formatting options to be applied to cells if the condition is true. ' Set the background color to yellow. cfRule.Formatting.Fill.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(255, &HFA, &HF7, &HAA) ' Set the font color to red. cfRule.Formatting.Font.Color = Color.Red
