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

Property Value

Boolean: true to allow data to overflow into adjacent empty cells in the Spread component; false otherwise


This property determines whether the display of the data can overflow into adjacent empty cells if the contents go beyond the width of the cell.

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

  • Left-aligned data in a cell overflows to the adjacent right cell.
  • Right-aligned data in a cell overflows to the adjacent left cell.
  • When data is centered in a cell, data overflows to both the left and right adjacent cells.

This only occurs for empty cells. If the adjacent cell had data, only the contents within the limits of that cell are displayed.


This example sets the AllowCellOverflow property.

sv.AllowCellOverflow = True
