SpreadsheetControl.SetSelectedShapes Method

Select specified shapes in the active worksheet.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Spreadsheet
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Spreadsheet.v19.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Parameters

Shapes
Type: IList<Shape>
A list of DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native.Shape objects.

Return value

Type: Boolean
true if shapes are selected successfully; otherwise false. If you pass null (Nothing in Visual Basic), or an empty list, or a list that contains at least one shape located in a worksheet other than the active worksheet, the method returns false.

Expanded Remarks

All shapes in a worksheet are contained in the DevExpress.Spreadsheet.ShapeCollection, accessible via the DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Worksheet.Shapes property. Use the SetSelectedShapes method to select multiple shapes in the active worksheet simultaneously. To get the list of shapes selected in the active worksheet, use the GetSelectedShapes method. To specify whether multi-selection is available to end-users in the SpreadsheetControl, use the DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet.SpreadsheetSelectionOptions.AllowMultiSelection option accessible via the SpreadsheetControl.Options.Behavior.AllowMultiSelection notation.

Note

To select shapes in a specific worksheet (which may or may not be active) of the document loaded in the SpreadsheetControl, use the DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Worksheet.SetSelectedShapes method of the worksheet object.
