Aspose.Cells - Cell Alignment Settings

Aspose.Cells provides a class, Workbook, that represents an Excel file. The Workbook class contains a WorksheetCollection that allows access to each worksheet in the Excel file. A worksheet is represented by the Worksheet class.

The Worksheet class provides a Cells collection. Each item in the Cells collection represents an object of the Cell class.

Aspose.Cells provides the setStyle method in the Cell class that is used a cell’s formatting. The Style class provides useful properties for configuring font settings.

Select any text alignment type using the TextAlignmentType enumeration.


 //Instantiating a Workbook object

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

//Accessing the added worksheet in the Excel file

int sheetIndex = workbook.getWorksheets().add();

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(sheetIndex);

Cells cells = worksheet.getCells();

//Adding the current system date to "A1" cell

Cell cell = cells.get("A1");

Style style = cell.getStyle();

//Adding some value to the "A1" cell

cell.setValue("Visit Aspose!");

//Setting the horizontal alignment of the text in the "A1" cell


//Saved style


Apache POI SS - HSSF & XSSF - Cell Alignment Settings

HSSFCellStyle provides the style for alignment in cells using Apache POI API.


 public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException


 // The path to the documents directory.

 String dataDir = Utils.getDataDir(ApacheCellAlignment.class);

 HSSFWorkbook wb = new HSSFWorkbook();

 HSSFSheet sheet = wb.createSheet("new sheet");

 HSSFRow row = sheet.createRow(2);

 createCell(wb, row, 0, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_CENTER);

 createCell(wb, row, 1, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_CENTER_SELECTION);

 createCell(wb, row, 2, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_FILL);

 createCell(wb, row, 3, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_GENERAL);

 createCell(wb, row, 4, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_JUSTIFY);

 createCell(wb, row, 5, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_LEFT);

 createCell(wb, row, 6, HSSFCellStyle.ALIGN_RIGHT);

 // Write the output to a file

 FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream(dataDir + "ApahceAlignment.xls");

\* @param column    the column number to create the cell in

\* @param align     the alignment for the cell.


private static void createCell(HSSFWorkbook wb, HSSFRow row, int column, int align) {

 HSSFCell cell = row.createCell(column);

 cell.setCellValue("Align It");
