Understanding the Built-in Shapes
Spread Windows Forms 12.0 Product Documentation > Spread Designer Guide > Designing Shapes > Understanding the Built-in Shapes

The FpSpread component provides the following built-in shapes that provide a basis for much of the shape customization that is possible with the component. These shapes are available from the Insert menu in the Spread Designer as well as from separate classes in code.

The shapes are summarized in this table (with arbitrarily colored examples of the shapes).

To add a shape, you can use code or you can use the Spread Designer. For more information about creating shapes in the Spread Designer, refer to the Insert Menu. For more information about the shapes classes, refer to the FarPoint.Win.Spread.DrawingSpace namespace.

Each shape can be rotated and resized, and their ability to be rotated and resized by the end user can be constrained. Colors, shadows, and transparency can be adjusted.
