Enum HorizontalAlignment

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<HorizontalAlignment>

    public enum HorizontalAlignment
    extends Enum<HorizontalAlignment>
    The enumeration value indicating horizontal alignment of a cell, i.e., whether it is aligned general, left, right, horizontally centered, filled (replicated), justified, centered across multiple cells, or distributed.
    • Enum Constant Detail

      • GENERAL

        public static final HorizontalAlignment GENERAL
        The horizontal alignment is general-aligned. Text data is left-aligned. Numbers, dates, and times are rightaligned. Boolean types are centered. Changing the alignment does not change the type of data.
      • LEFT

        public static final HorizontalAlignment LEFT
        The horizontal alignment is left-aligned, even in Rightto-Left mode. Aligns contents at the left edge of the cell. If an indent amount is specified, the contents of the cell is indented from the left by the specified number of character spaces. The character spaces are based on the default font and font size for the workbook.
      • CENTER

        public static final HorizontalAlignment CENTER
        The horizontal alignment is centered, meaning the text is centered across the cell.
      • RIGHT

        public static final HorizontalAlignment RIGHT
        The horizontal alignment is right-aligned, meaning that cell contents are aligned at the right edge of the cell, even in Right-to-Left mode.
      • FILL

        public static final HorizontalAlignment FILL
        Indicates that the value of the cell should be filled across the entire width of the cell. If blank cells to the right also have the fill alignment, they are also filled with the value, using a convention similar to centerContinuous.

        Additional rules:

        1. Only whole values can be appended, not partial values.
        2. The column will not be widened to 'best fit' the filled value
        3. If appending an additional occurrence of the value exceeds the boundary of the cell left/right edge, don't append the additional occurrence of the value.
        4. The display value of the cell is filled, not the underlying raw number.

      • JUSTIFY

        public static final HorizontalAlignment JUSTIFY
        The horizontal alignment is justified (flush left and right). For each line of text, aligns each line of the wrapped text in a cell to the right and left (except the last line). If no single line of text wraps in the cell, then the text is not justified.

        public static final HorizontalAlignment CENTER_SELECTION
        The horizontal alignment is centered across multiple cells. The information about how many cells to span is expressed in the Sheet Part, in the row of the cell in question. For each cell that is spanned in the alignment, a cell element needs to be written out, with the same style Id which references the centerContinuous alignment.

        public static final HorizontalAlignment DISTRIBUTED
        Indicates that each 'word' in each line of text inside the cell is evenly distributed across the width of the cell, with flush right and left margins.

        When there is also an indent value to apply, both the left and right side of the cell are padded by the indent value.

        A 'word' is a set of characters with no space character in them.

        Two lines inside a cell are separated by a carriage return.

    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static HorizontalAlignment[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (HorizontalAlignment c : HorizontalAlignment.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static HorizontalAlignment valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
