Setting Measurement Units


The column width is specified in internal units. This value is calculated as 1 unit being equal to the width of one character of the Windows system fixed font.

The row height is based on the current font. If the font is changed, the height of the row will change to the new size of the font. For more information on changing the font, see Setting the Font.

You can change the unit type to twips or to a constant value provided by the fpSpread control.

Note: You should set the unit type before using any other property, function, or method. Failure to do so can produce unexpected results.

Setting the unit type sets the unit type for all the sheets in the control.
