CalculatedValue vs DisplayText

Platform: WinForms |
Control: XlsIO |
Published Date: November 30, 2015 |
Last Revised Date: November 30, 2015

The below table illustrates the differences between CalculatedValue and DisplayText properties.



Calculated Value



With EnableSheetCalculation

  1. Returns only evaluated value (if cell has a formula)
  2. Returns only cell value (if cell has no formula)


  1. Returns evaluated value with number format (if cell has a formula)
  2. Returns cell value with number format (if cell has no formula)



Performance is good as it evaluates the formula alone.

Performance is low as it has many checks like HasFormula, HasNumber, Format, Etc.


Without EnableSheetCalculation

Always returns "NULL".

Always returns cell value with its number format.


Here is the sample code to enabling sheet calculation and accessing display text of a range in XlsIO.
