Methods

Name

Description

ApplyStyle(Style)

Applies a style to the cell. When a style is applied - rather than set (see Cell.Style ) - only the differences between the new style and style properties previously assigned to the cell (through the ExcelWriter API) will take effect. For example, if the cell has a background color and the new style applied does not contain a background color, the cell's color will not be affected. However, if the new style includes a background color, it will replace the existing background color of the cell.

ClearContent()

Clears a cell's content. Calling this method is equivalent to setting a cell's value to null.

ClearRichTextFormatting()

Clears all rich text formatting within the cell. The font of the text will be set to that set in Cell.Style.Font.

CreateAnchor(Int32, Int32)

Creates an anchor within the specified cell. An anchor represents the position of a floating (non-cell data) object within a spreadsheet.

CreateHyperlink(String)

Creates a new hyperlink in the cell pointing to the specified href. This hyperlink is automatically added to the worksheet. The cell value will be converted to hyperlinks.

GetCharacters(Int32)

Returns a CharacterRun object representing a range of characters within the cell. Use this property to set the font on specified characters within the cell.

GetCharacters(Int32, Int32)

Returns a CharacterRun object representing a range of characters within the cell. Use this method to set the font on specified characters within the cell.

RemoveComment()

Removes the comment associated with the cell. A comment is a note attached to the cell, separate from other cell content. To find out if a comment is attached to the cell, use Cell.HasComment .

RemoveConditionalFormat()

Removes any ConditionalFormat objects from the current Cell.

RemoveDataValidation()

Removes the DataValidation object associated with the cell.

SetConditionalFormat(ConditionalFormat)

Applies the specified ConditionalFormat to the current
Cell. If the cell already has a ConditionalFormat, it will be replaced by the specified
ConditionalFormat.
