A service object of the specified type, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if there is no service object of this type.

Remarks

Use this method to enable your application objects to obtain a service of the SpreadsheetControl in order to employ methods of the service. The control implements the IServiceProvider interface, so you can tell it what type of service you wish to retrieve via the GetService method; and if a service is available, it is offered to the caller object.

There is a set of predefined services you can retrieve. The IServiceProvider and IServiceContainer interface realization allows hiding implementation details, and provides more flexibility for future updates of the component.
