Hi Freddy,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We would like to let you know that your requirement can be achieved by using “getPropertyValue” and “updateCellValue” method. We can able to get the cell value by using “getPropertyValue” method with argument rowIndex and colIndex. And we can able to update the cell value by using “updateCellValue” with argument rowIndex, colIndex and value. Please refer the below code snippets.

[.html file]


        $(function () {



                loadComplete: "loadComplete",




        function loadComplete(args) {


           // [this] is Spreadsheet Object

           //Get cell value using this method

           var value = this.XLEdit.getPropertyValue(2, 3)  // To Pass the rowIndex ,colIndex

           //To get range of data using this method.

            var rangeData = this.getRangeData("C2:D7")   

            //To Update the cell value using this method

            this.XLEdit.updateCellValue({ rowIndex: 1, colIndex: 1 }, "Update Cell Value");
