Documents & Worksheets

Worksheet Protection

Use password encryption to prevent unauthorized access.

Worksheet Protection

The DevExpress VCL Spreadsheet control enables you to use password encryption to prevent unauthorized users from opening or modifying your workbooks. You can also restrict changes to workbooks, worksheets, and specific ranges. In a protected workbook, users are not allowed to add, delete or rename worksheets.

Various sheets can have different protection levels. For instance, a range in a protected worksheet can be unlocked for specific users while other users may be prompted for a password when they try to edit the range.


Excel-Inspired Comments


You can now annotate worksheets by using comments. End-users can add new comments, edit, hide or delete existing comments, move and resize the comment box.
