Auto Filter Data in VSTO and Aspose.Cells

To apply auto-filtering to a column:

  1. Create a workbook.
  2. Get a worksheet.
  3. Add sample data.
  4. Apply auto-filter.
  5. Auto-fit columns to make the display attractive.
  6. Save the spreadsheet.

The code samples in this article show how to perform these steps using VSTO with either C#, or using Apose.Cells, again with either C#.


 Excel.Application ExcelApp = Application;

//Add a Workbook.

Excel.Workbook objBook = ExcelApp.Workbooks.Add(System.Reflection.Missing.Value);

//Get the First sheet.

Excel.Worksheet sheet = (Excel.Worksheet)objBook.Sheets["Sheet1"];

//Add data into A1 and B1 Cells as headers.

sheet.Cells[1, 1] = "Product ID";

sheet.Cells[1, 2] = "Product Name";

//Add data into details cells.

sheet.Cells[2, 1] = 1;

sheet.Cells[3, 1] = 2;

sheet.Cells[4, 1] = 3;

sheet.Cells[5, 1] = 4;

sheet.Cells[2, 2] = "Apples";

sheet.Cells[3, 2] = "Bananas";

sheet.Cells[4, 2] = "Grapes";

sheet.Cells[5, 2] = "Oranges";

//Enable Auto-filter.

sheet.EnableAutoFilter = true;

//Create the range.

Excel.Range range = sheet.get_Range("A1", "B5");

//Auto-filter the range.

range.AutoFilter("1", "<>", Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlAutoFilterOperator.xlOr, "", true);

//Auto-fit the second column.

sheet.get_Range("B1", "B5").EntireColumn.AutoFit();

//Save the copy of workbook as .xlsx file.



 //Instantiate a new Workbook.

Workbook objBook = new Workbook();

//Get the First sheet.

Worksheet sheet = objBook.Worksheets["Sheet1"];

//Add data into A1 and B1 Cells as headers.

sheet.Cells[0, 0].PutValue("Product ID");

sheet.Cells[0, 1].PutValue("Product Name");

//Add data into details cells.

sheet.Cells[1, 0].PutValue(1);

sheet.Cells[2, 0].PutValue(2);

sheet.Cells[3, 0].PutValue(3);

sheet.Cells[4, 0].PutValue(4);

sheet.Cells[1, 1].PutValue("Apples");

sheet.Cells[2, 1].PutValue("Bananas");

sheet.Cells[3, 1].PutValue("Grapes");

sheet.Cells[4, 1].PutValue("Oranges");

//Auto-filter the range.

sheet.AutoFilter.Range = "A1:B5";

//Auto-fit the second column.

sheet.AutoFitColumn(1, 0, 4);

//Save the copy of workbook as .xlsx file.
