How to: Show and Hide Row and Column Headings

This topic demonstrates how to control column and row headers' visibility in a worksheet and SpreadsheetControl.

Expanded Show or Hide Headers in a Worksheet

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E4655.

Cells in a worksheet are arranged in rows (Worksheet.Rows) and columns (Worksheet.Columns). Each row and column has a unique name (rows use numbers "1", "2", "3",..., "1048576", and columns use letters "A", "B", "C",...,"XFD"). Row and column names are displayed on a worksheet's left and top side, respectively. Use the Worksheet.ActiveView.ShowHeadings (WorksheetView.ShowHeadings) property to control row and column headings' visibility in a worksheet.

Note

Use the WorksheetPrintOptions.PrintHeadings property to specify whether row and column headings should appear in a printout. Refer to the How to: Specify Print Settings document for details on how to specify print options for a worksheet.

The image below shows a worksheet's appearance with visible and hidden row and column headings.

Expanded Show or Hide Headers in the SpreadsheetControl

Use the SpreadsheetViewOptions.ShowColumnHeaders and SpreadsheetViewOptions.ShowRowHeaders properties to show or hide column and row headers in the SpreadsheetControl. These property values influence only the SpreadsheetControl's appearance and are not saved to a document.
