Apply gradient & shadows to cell in excel file


Can you please let us know if there are any methods that we can use for applying gradient color and shadows to particular cell or cell area on the excel sheet ?

This is similar to applying gradient color & shadow to html elements.

Hi Sachin,

Thank you for contacting Aspose support.

You can apply the gradient fill to the cell. Please check the detailed article on Approaches to Format Data in Cells for Applying Gradient Fill Effects. I am not sure about your other requirement, that is; Shadow Effect for Cells. Could you please share a sample spreadsheet demonstrating this requirement? Please note, you can manually create a sample spreadsheet with Excel to elaborate the requirement. Please also provide the steps to generate the required effect for better understanding.
