Asked On November 27, 2019 04:03 PM UTC

Hello
Using Winforms XLSIO Spreadsheet component, I want to ask about the following:
1. Is it possible to insert a Windows Forms Control as a Cell Editor, Say I have a Windows Forms Control that is composed of ComboBox with Checkbox in each entry, and I want the end user to use this control in a given cell.
2. Is it possible to launch a Windows Forms dialog box when a user starts typing in a spreadsheet cell?
3. What functions are supported out of the box? (you know for example, has several built-in function to address financial functions, statistical functions, etc.), for example DGET, AVG, etc.?
Thank you,
Emmad Kareem

Hi Emmad Kareem, 
 
Thank you using syncfusion products. 
 
1. Is it possible to insert a Windows Forms Control as a Cell Editor, Say I have a Windows Forms Control that is composed of ComboBox with Checkbox in each entry, and I want the end user to use this control in a given cell. 
We have analyzed our source code thoroughly to achieve your requirement. However, we regret to let you know that, Spreadsheet for Winforms does not have support or extensibility to add custom combobox or control to a cells.  
 
We have default combobox support for DataValidation cells. We already provided a document to achieve this in our user guide. 
 
2. Is it possible to launch a Windows Forms dialog box when a user starts typing in a spreadsheet cell? 
CurrentCellBeginEdit event can be used to show a dialog when current cell starts editing. Please make use of below code to wire the events. 
 
Example code 
 
//Event that notifies when a cell starts editing. 
spreadsheet1.ActiveGrid.CurrentCellBeginEdit += ActiveGrid_CurrentCellBeginEdit; 
 
//Event customization. 
private void ActiveGrid_CurrentCellBeginEdit(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.CellGrid.Helpers.CurrentCellBeginEditEventArgs e) 
{ 
    MessageBox.Show("Content to be viewed", "Editing", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel); 
    if(DialogResult == DialogResult.OK) 
    { 
        //Perform some action based on requirements. 
    } 
    else 
    { 
        //Perform some action based on requirements. 
    } 
} 
3. What functions are supported out of the box? (you know for example, has several built-in function to address financial functions, statistical functions, etc.), for example DGET, AVG, etc.? 
We already documented the supported formulas by FormulaEngine in our user guide. Please make use of below UG link for further details about the formulas. 
 
 
 
Please get back to us, if you have any other queries.
