A Supplemental License allows an organization to install the licensed product on up to five additional machines where a licensed version may be needed, but no development work is being done on the product. For example, a build machine, a test/QA machine or even a development machine where the developer is not working with the spreadsheet component directly but needs a license to be able to build the solution without trial or nag screens interrupting the process. You must own at least one development license to purchase the Supplemental License Pack.



AJAX Support
AJAX allows the component to refresh without refreshing the entire page. This affects several features including expanding and collapsing child sheets in a hierarchical display, column sorting, inserting rows, searching, filtering, paging, and formulas.

Row filtering
You can customize the user experience for filtering data on a sheet. With row filtering, you can allow the user to filter the data in columns on a sheet and display only the rows of data which meet criteria from a drop-down list or change the appearance of rows based on that filtering.

You can search for data in any of the cells in the workbook by specifying the sheet and the string of data for which to search. You also have several searching options you can choose from.

Frozen Rows and Columns
Using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 5.5 and higher, you can freeze columns and rows and keep them displayed regardless of where the user navigates in the sheet. Frozen rows and frozen columns do not scroll when the user uses the scroll bar or navigation keys in the component.

You can set up the display to allow Outlook-style grouping of rows. For large amounts of data, this is helpful to display the data in the order the user needs. The user selects columns by which to sort and the component then organizes and displays the data in a hierarchy with rows organized accordingly.

Load on Demand
You can allow the Web page to load on demand -- as the user scrolls further down the spreadsheet the FarPoint Spread component on the client loads another page of rows from the server as needed. This is similar to what was called "virtual mode" in the COM version of the product.

Conditional Formatting
You can set up conditional formats within cells that determine the formatting of the cell based on the outcome of a conditional statement. You can use a named style to specify various formatting options such as borders and colors to apply if the condition statement is valid, that is, if the operation is satisfied.

Drag and Move Columns
Moving columns just got easier.You can allow your users to click on the header of a column and drag it to another location on the spreadsheet. You can set this with the AllowColumnMove property in the FpSpread class.

Display multiple levels of data because datasets are getting deeper.

More Than 300 Built-in Functions
Add calcuations quickly to your web applications by using any of over 300 pre-defined algorithims or add your own custom functions. Spread now supports cross-sheet formula referencing.

Insert and Edit
Allow or prohibit users from inserting and editing data in columns, rows, or cells.

Custom Messages
Display custom error messages when invalid data has been entered (for example, entering text into a date-time cell).

Command Bar
A customizable button bar provides an easy and intuitive way for your users to edit, delete, and insert data, control sheet navigation, and control paging. This can be positioned on the top or bottom of the control.

Page Navigation
Customize the navigation of multiple pages of data by displaying page numbers, next and previous arrows, or both. It can be positioned on the top and/or bottom of Spread or on the Command Bar.

Each control can contain multiple sheets, similar to Microsoft Excel, allowing you to organize your information on one convenient screen. You can also hide sheets.

Bind Spread to a dataset to quickly display and easily allow your users to edit the information. Spread can automatically update the dataset with the changes. Spread can bind to any data source that supports the IList or IListSource interface.

Use in unbound mode to populate columns, rows, and cells using your own data and custom formatting.

Text Tips
Display custom text tips over any column, row, or cell to display additional information to help your user.

Multiple Data Changes
Allow multiple data changes, even on multiple rows, without a having to round trip to the server to save your changes.

Client-Side Data Validation
Client-side data validation reduces unnecessary round trips to the server by validating the entered data on the client side before it gets posted back.

Named Appearance Styles
Create Named Styles to define a certain style (for example; fonts, colors, cell types, etc.) and share the style with other cells. This greatly reduces the coding and allows you to easily modify the master style and it will update all related styles accordingly.

Predefined and Custom Skins
Easily and quickly configure the appearance of Spread using predefined skins or create and save your own custom skins. Custom skins can easily be shared with everyone in your development team, allowing a consistent look of the control across multiple pages and applications.

Automatically sort any column in ascending or descending order by double clicking on the header, or programatically sort any range of cells.

Client Scripting
Create a rich user experience for your users using the client scripting, allowing the editing of values without having to round trip to the server, as well as many other user-friendly benefits.

HTML tables
Use Spread as a replacement for HTML tables, giving you full access to Spreads' advanced formatting options.

Customize the gridlines, odd/even row colors, colors of the selected item, scrollbar color, cell spacing and much more.

Operation Modes
Use the Operation Modes to control how selections can be made: Normal, ReadOnly, RowMode, or SingleSelect.

You have complete control over the design of Spread by using the Sheet, Row, Column and Cell objects.

Add spans to headers, rows, columns or cells.

Multiple Headers
Add multiple rows and columns to the headers.

Cell Customization
Complete customization at the cell level, including setting cell types, tags, alignment, borders, colors, font and margins.

Spread Designer
Use the Spread Designer to reduce development time by allowing you to fully customize the look and feel of the control at design time using an intuitive, easy-to-use interface.

Import / Export Data
Import/export Microsoft Excel 97 and higher files and text files. Export to Spread XML.

Publish Excel Workbooks Online
Easily publish your existing or new Microsoft Excel 97 and higher workbooks online by using Spread's Excel import and export feature.

Dual Programming Models
Program directly against Spread's data and style models for maximum control and speed or use the included Helper Objects for a more intuitive approach.

Multiple Browsers
Unlike other grids, we recognize the possibility that not every one of your users will be using MS Windows Internet Explorer 6.0. We have done extensive testing with other browsers and versions and, when possible, have added support for these as well. Try that with your current grid!

Cell Types
Use any of 16 predefined cell types to control what type of data is allowed to be entered in a cell or create your own cell type to display data:

List Box
Check Box
Combo Box
Radio Button
