Examples

The following code example creates a DataTable and a ListObject, and binds the ListObject to the DataTable. It then applies the font and pattern formats of a predefined XlRangeAutoFormat value to the ListObject.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void ListObject_DataBoundFormatSettings()
{
    // Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    DataTable dt = ds.Tables.Add("Customers");
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("LastName"));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("FirstName"));

    // Add a new row to the DataTable.
    DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
    dr["LastName"] = "Chan";
    dr["FirstName"] = "Gareth";
    dt.Rows.Add(dr);

    // Create a list object.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ListObject list1 = 
        this.Controls.AddListObject(
        this.Range["A1"], "list1");

    // Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    list1.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = true;
    list1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", "LastName",
        "FirstName");

    // Specify the format settings that you want to include.
    // In this example, only the Font and Pattern 
    // settings are applied.
    list1.DataBoundFormatSettings =
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.FormatSettings.Font |
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.FormatSettings.Pattern;

    // Add a format to the list object.
    list1.DataBoundFormat = 
        Excel.XlRangeAutoFormat.xlRangeAutoFormatList2;
}
Private Sub ListObject_DataBoundFormatSettings()
    ' Create a new DataSet and DataTable.
    Dim ds As New DataSet()
    Dim dt As DataTable = ds.Tables.Add("Customers")
    dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("LastName"))
    dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("FirstName"))

    ' Add a new row to the DataTable.
    Dim dr As DataRow = dt.NewRow()
    dr("LastName") = "Chan"
    dr("FirstName") = "Gareth"
    dt.Rows.Add(dr)

    ' Create a list object.
    Dim List1 As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ListObject = _
        Me.Controls.AddListObject(Me.Range( _
        "A1"), "List1")

    ' Bind the list object to the DataTable.
    List1.AutoSetDataBoundColumnHeaders = True
    List1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers", _
        "LastName", "FirstName")

    ' Specify the format settings that you want to include.
    ' In this example, only the Font and Pattern 
    ' settings are applied.
    List1.DataBoundFormatSettings = _
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.FormatSettings.Font Or _
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.FormatSettings.Pattern

    ' Add a format to the list object.
    List1.DataBoundFormat = _
        Excel.XlRangeAutoFormat.xlRangeAutoFormatList2

End Sub

Remarks

There are six settings that combine to specify formatting. Using this enumeration, you can select which settings to apply to the ListObject. By default all format settings are applied.
