Rotating Cell Text in VSTO and Aspose.Cells

To rotate text in a cell on a worksheet, take the following steps:

  1. Create a workbook and get a worksheet.
  2. Add samples text.
  3. Format the text: rotate, add background colour.
  4. Save the file. The code samples that follow show how to perform these steps first in VSTO, using either C#, and then in Aspose.Cells, again using either C#.


 //intiate Application object

Excel.Application ExcelApp = Application;

//Add a Workbook.

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

//Get the First sheet.

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

//Put some text into cell B2.

objSheet.Cells[2, 2] = "Aspose Heading";

//Define a range object(B2).

Excel.Range _range;

_range = objSheet.get_Range("B2", "B2");

//Specify the angle of rotation of the text.

_range.Orientation = 45;

//Set the background color.

_range.Interior.Color = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToWin32(Color.FromArgb(0, 51, 105));

//Set the font color of cell text

_range.Font.Color = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToOle(System.Drawing.Color.White);

//Save the excel file.


//Quit the Application.



 // Instantiate a new Workbook.

Workbook objworkbook = new Workbook();

// Get the First sheet.

Worksheet objworksheet = objworkbook.Worksheets[0];

// Get Cells.

Cells objcells = objworksheet.Cells;// Get a particular Cell.

Cell objcell = objcells["B2"];// Put some text value.

objcell.PutValue("Aspose Heading");

// Get associated style object of the cell.

Style objstyle = objcell.GetStyle();

// Specify the angle of rotation of the text.

objstyle.RotationAngle = 45;

// Set the custom fill color of the cells.

objstyle.ForegroundColor = Color.FromArgb(0, 51, 105);

// Set the background pattern for fillment color.

objstyle.Pattern = BackgroundType.Solid;

// Set the font color of cell text

objstyle.Font.Color = Color.White;

// Assign the updated style object back to the cell


// Save the work book
