    Converts a cell reference to row and column.
  • const wchar_t* rowColToAddr(int row, int col, bool rowRelative = true, bool colRelative = true)
    Converts row and column to a cell reference.
  • void setTabColor(Color color)
    Sets the color for the sheet's tab.
  • void setTabColor(int red, int green, int blue)
    Sets the RGB color for the sheet's tab.
  • bool addIgnoredError(int rowFirst, int colFirst, int rowLast, int colLast, IgnoredError iError)
    Adds the ignored error for specified range. It allows to hide green triangles on left sides of cells. For example, if a cell is formatted as text but contains a numeric value, this is considered to be a potential error because the number won't be treated as a number, for example, in calculations. It is possible to combine a few IgnoredError values with operator |. Returns false if error occurs. Get error info with Book::errorMessage().
    IgnoredError valueDescription
    IERR_EVAL_ERRORIgnore errors when cells contain formulas that result in an error.
    IERR_EMPTY_CELLREFIgnore errors when formulas refer to empty cells.
    IERR_NUMBER_STORED_AS_TEXTIgnore errors when numbers are formatted as text or are preceded by an apostrophe.
    IERR_INCONSIST_RANGEIgnore errors when formulas omit certain cells in a region.
    IERR_INCONSIST_FMLAIgnore errors when a formula in a region of your worksheet differs from other formulas in the same region.
    IERR_TWODIG_TEXTYEARIgnore errors when formulas contain text formatted cells with years represented as 2 digits.
    IERR_UNLOCK_FMLAIgnore errors when unlocked cells contain formulas.
    IERR_DATA_VALIDATIONIgnore errors when a cell's value in a Table does not comply with the Data Validation rules specified.

    VALIDATION_TYPE_LISTData validation which checks for a value matching one of list of values.
    VALIDATION_TYPE_DATEData validation which checks for date values satisfying the given condition.
    VALIDATION_TYPE_TIMEData validation which checks for time values satisfying the given condition.
    VALIDATION_TYPE_TEXTLENGTHData validation which checks for text values, whose length satisfies the given condition.
    VALIDATION_TYPE_CUSTOMData validation which uses a custom formula to check the cell value.

    op - the relational operator of data validation:
    DataValidationOperator valueDescription
    VALIDATION_OP_BETWEENData validation which checks if a value is between two other values.
    VALIDATION_OP_NOTBETWEENData validation which checks if a value is not between two other values.
    VALIDATION_OP_EQUALData validation which checks if a value is equal to a specified value.
    VALIDATION_OP_NOTEQUALData validation which checks if a value is not equal to a specified value.
    VALIDATION_OP_LESSTHANData validation which checks if a value is less than a specified value.
    VALIDATION_OP_LESSTHANOREQUALData validation which checks if a value is less than or equal to a specified value.
    VALIDATION_OP_GREATERTHANData validation which checks if a value is greater than a specified value.
    VALIDATION_OP_GREATERTHANOREQUALData validation which checks if a value is greater than or equal to a specified value.

    rowFirst - the first row of range;
    rowLast - the last row of range;
    colFirst - the first column of range;
    colLast - the last column of range;
    value1 - the first value for relational operator;
    value2 - the second value for VALIDATION_OP_BETWEEN or VALIDATION_OP_NOTBETWEEN operator;
    allowBlank - a boolean value indicating whether the data validation treats empty or blank entries as valid, 'true' means empty entries are OK and do not violate the validation constraints;
    hideDropDown - a boolean value indicating whether to display the dropdown combo box for a list type data validation (VALIDATION_TYPE_LIST);
    showInputMessage - a boolean value indicating whether to display the input prompt message;
    showErrorMessage - a boolean value indicating whether to display the error alert message when an invalid value has been entered, according to the criteria specified;
    promptTitle - title bar text of input prompt;
    prompt - message text of input prompt;
    errorTitle - title bar text of error alert;
    error - message text of error alert;
    errorStyle - the style of error alert used for this data validation:
    DataValidationErrorStyle valueDescription
    VALIDATION_ERRSTYLE_STOPThis data validation error style uses a stop icon in the error alert.
