Property Value

MergePolicy setting of how to handle automatic merging

To allow adjacent identical cells to be merged automatically, set this property.

For more information on automatic merging of cells, refer to Allowing Cells to Merge Automatically .

If you are using a specific cell type, be careful of restrictions for that cell type. For example, in order for automatic merging to work with CheckBox cells, the Value needs to be set to true or false instead of 1 or 0.

This example sets the MergePolicy for the first column.
FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column c;
c = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns[0];
c.MergePolicy = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.MergePolicy.Always;
Dim c As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column
c = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns(0)
c.MergePolicy = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.MergePolicy.Always
