Property Value

Type: System.String
A String representation of the cell value.


The value of the Owner property is null.

The Value property contains a string that represents the value of the cell FormattedValue property. If FormattedValue is null, Value contains the string "(null)".

Setting this property has no effect if the owning cell is a header cell, is read-only, or does not belong to a row. Otherwise, setting this property:

  • Ends any edit currently in progress and commits the value.

  • Uses the cell GetFormattedValue and ParseFormattedValue methods to convert the specified value to the type indicated by the cell ValueType property.

  • Sets the cell value to the converted value.
