DefaultStyle Property (SheetView)

FarPoint.Win.Spread Assembly > FarPoint.Win.Spread Namespace > SheetView Class : DefaultStyle Property
Gets or sets a StyleInfo object for the default style of the sheet.
Public Property DefaultStyle As StyleInfo
Dim instance As SheetView
Dim value As StyleInfo
instance.DefaultStyle = value
value = instance.DefaultStyle
public StyleInfo DefaultStyle {get; set;}

Property Value

StyleInfo object containing the style information

If you are assigning the same color (for example) to every cell, it is best to set the color to the DefaultStyle of the SheetView object. If you are assigning different colors (for example) to every cell, set the styles directly in the StyleModel of the SheetView.

DefaultStyle and its related properties are wrapper object properties which get or set the style model's StyleInfo object (style property settings) for row -1 and column -1, which is inherited by all cells in the style model's GetCompositeInfo method unless overridden by another StyleInfo object setting at the column, row, or cell level.

All of those properties have corresponding Name properties for getting and setting style names for NamedStyle objects in SheetView.NamedStyles (that is, SheetView.DefaultStyleName, SheetView.SheetCornerStyleName, etc.).

This example sets the background color and text color for the sheet based on the style information provided.
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.DefaultStyle.BackColor = Color.LightBlue;
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.DefaultStyle.BackColor = Color.LightBlue
