Glossary Item Box

Enables cross-sheet referencing for this component.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Property EnableCrossSheetReference As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage)Copy Code
Dim instance As FpSpread
Dim value As Boolean
instance.EnableCrossSheetReference = value
value = instance.EnableCrossSheetReference
public bool EnableCrossSheetReference {get; set;}

Property Value

Boolean: true if cross-sheet referencing is enabled; false otherwise


In a multiple-sheet Spread component, a formula in a cell can refer to a cell in an entirely different sheet. This allows calculations to make use of data and formulas on any of the sheets in a Spread component. Referencing a cell in another sheet is called cross-sheet referencing.

Set this property to true to allow and enable cross-sheet references; set this property to false to disallow or disable cross-sheet references.

Refer to Sheet References in a Formula for more information about making the sheet name explicit in a cell reference.


This example sums the values from the first sheet and places the sum in the second.
C#Copy Code
fpSpread1.EnableCrossSheetReference = true;
fpSpread1.Sheets.Count = 2;
fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0, 50, 50].CellType = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.NumberCellType();
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].Value = 100;
fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[1, 0].Value = 100;
fpSpread1.Sheets(1).Cells[0, 0, 50, 50].CellType = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.NumberCellType();
fpSpread1.Sheets(1).Cells[1, 3].Formula = "Sheet1!A1+Sheet1!A2";
