Property Value

String containing formatted data

This property gets or sets the formatted data in a cell using the IFormatter object for that cell to do the parsing. If setting the text, the data handled with this property is placed in the data model after it is parsed; if getting the text, the data is retrieved from the data model and parsed using the formatter.

Besides using this property, you can get or set the text in a cell using several methods available at the sheet level (with the SheetView object). For more information, see Handling Data Using Sheet Methods.

Remember that the data may be displayed differently in a cell depending on the cell type. For more information, see Understanding Cell Type Effects on Displaying Data.

This example specifies the font for text in the cell.
FarPoint.Win.Spread.Cell acell;
acell = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0];
acell.Font = new Font("MS Sans Serif", 10, FontStyle.Bold);
acell.Text = "Font";
Dim acell As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Cell
acell = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0)
acell.Font = New Font("MS Sans Serif", 10, FontStyle.Bold)
acell.Text = "Font"
