Cell.GetPrecedentsInCalculation method

Gets all precedents(reference to cells in current workbook) used by this cell’s formula while calculating it.

public IEnumerator GetPrecedentsInCalculation()

Return Value

Enumerator to enumerate all references(ReferredArea)

Remarks

This method can only work with the situation that EnableCalculationChain is true for the workbook and the workbook has been fully calculated. If this cell is not a formula or it does not reference to any other cells, null will be returned.

Examples

[C#]

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
Cells cells = workbook.Worksheets[0].Cells;
cells["A2"].Formula = "=IF(TRUE,B2,B1)";
workbook.Settings.FormulaSettings.EnableCalculationChain = true;
workbook.CalculateFormula();
IEnumerator en = cells["A2"].GetPrecedentsInCalculation();
Console.WriteLine("A2's calculation precedents:");
while(en.MoveNext())
{
    ReferredArea r = (ReferredArea)en.Current;
    Console.WriteLine(r);
}
