ig.excel.FormattedText

Represents text with multiple paragraphs and mixed formatting in a shape.

Remarks

The formatting of the string is controlled in a similar fashion as it would be in Microsoft Excel. In Excel, the user must select a portion of the text and set the various formatting properties of that selected text.

With the FormattedText, a portion of the text is "selected" by calling either FormattedText.getFont or FormattedText.getFont. Formatting properties are then set on the returned FormattedTextFont and all characters in the font's selection range are given these properties.

Getting the formatting properties of a FormattedTextFont will return the formatting of the first character in font's selection range.

  • ig.excel.FormattedText
    Constructor

    new $.ig.excel.FormattedText( unformattedString:string );

    Creates a new instance of the FormattedText class.

    • unformattedString
    • Type:string
    • The string that will be displayed in the shape. Each line of the string will be placed in a separate paragraph of the FormattedText.paragraphs collection.

    Exceptions

    Exception Description
    ig.ArgumentNullException unformattedString is null.
  • clone

    .clone( );
    Return Type:
    ig.excel.FormattedText
    Return Type Description:
    A new FormattedText that is a copy of this one.

    Creates a new FormattedText that is a copy of this one.

    Remarks

    This should be used if the same formatted text needs to be used in multiple shapes. The FormattedText class can only exist as the WorksheetShapeWithText.text of one shape at a time. If the FormattedText is already the text of a shape, and needs to be set as the text of another shape, clone the FormattedText and set the returned clone as text of the shape.

    The cloned FormattedText only takes its original configuration for this instance. If this instance is cloned and than changed, the clone will not be changed as well; it will remain as it was when it was cloned.
