Property Value

SelectionUnit setting that determines the unit of selections

Use this property if the OperationMode property is set to OperationMode.Normal or OperationMode.ReadOnly to customize the sheet so that users and the application can only select certain items.

If you want to specify that users can only select certain items, but not restrict the application from selecting certain items and the OperationMode property is set to OperationMode.Normal or OperationMode.ReadOnly, set the FpSpread class's or SpreadView class's SelectionBlockOptions property.

This example specifies the selection policy for the sheet for normal operation mode, and sets the background color and text color for selections.
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionStyle = FarPoint.Win.Spread.SelectionStyles.SelectionColors;
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionPolicy = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionPolicy.Range;
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionUnit = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionUnit.Cell;
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.AddSelection(0, 0, 2, 2);
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.AddSelection(3, 0, 2, 2);
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionBackColor = Color.Red;
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionForeColor = Color.DarkBlue;
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionStyle = FarPoint.Win.Spread.SelectionStyles.SelectionColors
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionPolicy = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionPolicy.Range
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionUnit = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SelectionUnit.Cell
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.AddSelection(0, 0, 2, 2)
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.AddSelection(3, 0, 2, 2)
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionBackColor = Color.Red
FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SelectionForeColor = Color.DarkBlue
