The Grid Format functions enable the customization of the look and feel of the grid visual. Using a combination of formatting functions, users have a lot of control over how the grid will look, and what information the reader's attention should be drawn to.
The functions available here are:
Grid Borders: customize the grid's borders, including border color and width.
Grid Design: review the different grid designs (matrix mode, flat mode, flat matrix, and accounting).
Grid Font:customize the grid font.
Grid Sizing: change grid row and column size as needed.
Alternate Rows: display every other row in a different shade, to easily differentiate between rows.
Mini Map: focus in on a given area of a grid, making it easier to navigate data in large grids.
Grid Padding: add padding to all cells in the grid (including data cells and grid and row header cells).
Scale to Fit: scale a large grid down to fit it to the canvas size.
Alignment: position the grid on a given area of the canvas.
Headers: customize row and column headers.
Expand Icons: enable or disable expand and collapse icons.
Readability: override Pyramid's readability logic to enable a broader combination of background and foreground (text) colors.
Extended Grid Formatting: the extended grid formatting functions are grouped under the Format All section of the Component ribbon; these functions enable editing of the grid design, row, column, or data design, or contextual formatting (based on an active selection from the grid).
