Property Value

String containing the note for the cell

You can attach a note to a cell. This text may include a comment, a question, or documentation describing the origin of the cell's value. A cell that has a note displays a small red indicator (cell note indicator) in the upper right corner of the cell. When the pointer is over a cell indicator of a cell that has a note, the cell note text displays in a box next to the cell.

Cell notes are displayed in a similar manner as text tips. When the pointer is over the cell note indicator, the cell note text appears. For more information, refer to Adding a Note to a Cell.

When the Spread component displays the cell note, the TextTipFetch event occurs. You can display both text tips and cell notes for a cell. For other options, refer to the TextTipPolicy property.

You can use the CellNoteIndicatorVisible property to hide the cell note indicator when the pointer is over the cell note indicator.

There are some limitations to the use and display of cell notes:

This example supplies a note for the cell.
FarPoint.Win.Spread.Cell acell;
acell = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0];
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].Text = "Note Test";
acell.Note = "This is a note";
Dim acell As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Cell
acell = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0)
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0).Text = "Note Test"
acell.Note = "This is a note"
