PatterColor, PatternStyle and Gradient missing

Feb 10, 2012 at 9:51 PM

Hello! I'm trying to find in IXLFill the Pattern Color, Pattern Style and Gradient related properties. These correspond to the following settings in Excel: right-click a cell, click Format Cells..., click Fill tab, see Pattern Color and Pattern Style. To see Gradient click Fill effects... and check the settings in the new window.

I set on cells these settings, but I could not find any of them in the IXLCell.IXLFill.

Please, help!

Gradients are not supported yet (without an ETA).

I am also trying to define these properties of a cell in some reports that I have to create. Is there any workaround for the time being until it can be implemented?

Many thanks for a fantastic and easy to use library

Nothing comes to mind other than using the OpenXML SDK to add the gradients.

Hi. Is it not possible to wrap this within the ClosedXML library, giving some constants or enums or some predefined values?

It's definitely possible to implement gradients but at the moment that's a low priority. I'll take a look at it this weekend. If it's easy enough I'll implement it. No promises though.

Good afternoon!

Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead but has there been any progress on this? Currently working on a project which requires a gradient on the top row and this is the closest thing I could find to a lead! Thanks!
