How to: Format Cells Using a Three-Color Scale

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E4968.

This example demonstrates how to apply a three-color scale conditional formatting rule.

  1. First of all, specify the minimum, midpoint and maximum thresholds of a range to which the rule will be applied. Threshold values are determined by the ConditionalFormattingValue object that can be accessed via the ConditionalFormattingCollection.CreateValue method. The type of the threshold value is specified by one of the ConditionalFormattingValueType enumeration values and can be a number, percent, formula, or percentile. Call the ConditionalFormattingCollection.CreateValue method with the ConditionalFormattingValueType.MinMax parameter to set the minimum and maximum thresholds to the lowest and highest values in a range of cells, respectively.

  2. To apply a conditional formatting rule represented by the ColorScale3ConditionalFormatting object, access the collection of conditional formats from the Worksheet.ConditionalFormattings property and call the ConditionalFormattingCollection.AddColorScale3ConditionalFormatting method with the following parameters:

To remove the ColorScale3ConditionalFormatting object, use the ConditionalFormattingCollection.Remove, ConditionalFormattingCollection.RemoveAt or ConditionalFormattingCollection.Clear methods.
