- Index of sheet on which to search
- String for which to search
- Whether the search considers the case of the letters in the search string
- Whether the search considers only an exact match
- Whether the search goes by alternate coordinates of column, row (instead of row, column)
- Whether the search considers wildcard characters (*, ?) in the search string
- Whether the search includes the content in the cell
- Whether the search includes the content in the cell notes
- Whether the search includes the content in the cell tags or their string representations
- Index of row at which to start
- Index of column at which to start
- Index of row at which match is found
- Index of column at which match is found
Return ValueString containing the entire cell text in which the string was found, or null if not found in a cell, is returned.
Also, the foundRowIndex and foundColumnIndex return the row index and column index of the cell in which the string is found.
This search method is similar to the basic search method but adds the options for whether to search other areas beyond the data in the cells. You can search optionally any or all of the data cells, the cell notes, or the cell tags or any combination. It starts at the cell location specified (with startRowIndex and startColumnIndex) and goes to the end of the sheet until the string match is found.
This search method searches all the cells that contain data that can be represented as a string by the Text property of that cell, and that includes hidden and locked cells.
This search method checks the formatted string, that is the Text in the cell, not the Value.
For a hierarchy of sheets, this method only searches cells in a parent sheet. To search child sheets, you would need to perform a separate search of each child sheet.
int x = 0; int y = 0; fpSpread1.Search(0, "test", false, false, false, false, true, false, false, 0, 0, ref x, ref y); listBox1.Items.Add(x.ToString()); listBox1.Items.Add(y.ToString());
