Measure Units

The ASPxSpreadsheet control allows you to select a unit of measurement for various distance values of a workbook (such as column width and row height). To set a single unit of measurement, use the Unit property of the IWorkbook object returned by ASPxSpreadsheet.Document.

Centimeter Centimeter (1 inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters) Set the Unit property to DocumentUnit.Centimeter.
Millimeter Millimeter (10 millimeters are equal to 1 centimeter) Set the Unit property to DocumentUnit.Millimeter.
Inch Inch Set the Unit property to DocumentUnit.Inch.
Point Point (1 inch is equal to 72 points) Set the Unit property to DocumentUnit.Point.
