Is it possible to do multiple colored text within an Excel cell?

So if I have a cell with the value 'Employee John Smith' is it possible to make 'Employee' grey and 'John Smith' red?

Hi Phil,


Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.


Yes, Our XlsIO support multiple colored text within an excel cell. We have provided the sample with code snippet below for your reference.


Sample : RichTextString.zip


Code Snippet [C#]:


//Insert Rich Text

IRange range = worksheet.Range["C3"];

range.Text = "Employee John Smith";

IRichTextString rtf = range.RichText;


//Formatting the text

IFont fontGray = workbook.CreateFont();

fontGray.Size = 16;

fontGray.Bold = true;

fontGray.Italic = true;

//grey color

fontGray.RGBColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(255, 192, 192, 192);

rtf.SetFont(0, 7, fontGray);


IFont fontRed = workbook.CreateFont();

fontRed.Size = 12;

fontRed.Bold = false;

fontRed.Italic = false;

//red color

fontRed.RGBColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 0, 0);

rtf.SetFont(9, 18, fontRed);
