Property Value

Boolean: true if data can overflow into adjacent empty cells in the Spread component while that cell is in edit mode; false otherwise


Determines whether the display of data can overflow into adjacent empty cells when an editor is open in a cell.

When this property is set to true, the following occurs:

When the user moves from the cell, the spreadsheet automatically turns edit mode off and only the text that fits in the cell is displayed. To display overflow text in adjacent cells, use the AllowCellOverflow property.

This example sets the AllowEditOverflow property.
FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadView sv = fpSpread1.GetRootWorkbook();
sv.AllowEditOverflow = true;
Dim sv As FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadView = FpSpread1.GetRootWorkbook
sv.AllowEditOverflow = True
