Cell Style Example

// STEP 1: Create a new workbook
const wb = XLSX.utils.book_new();

// STEP 2: Create data rows and styles
let row = [
	{ v: "Courier: 24", t: "s", s: { font: { name: "Courier", sz: 24 } } },
	{ v: "bold & color", t: "s", s: { font: { bold: true, color: { rgb: "FF0000" } } } },
	{ v: "fill: color", t: "s", s: { fill: { fgColor: { rgb: "E9E9E9" } } } },
	{ v: "line\nbreak", t: "s", s: { alignment: { wrapText: true } } },

// STEP 3: Create worksheet with rows; Add worksheet to workbook
const ws = XLSX.utils.aoa_to_sheet([row]);
XLSX.utils.book_append_sheet(wb, ws, "readme demo");

// STEP 4: Write Excel file to browser
XLSX.writeFile(wb, "xlsx-js-style-demo.xlsx");

Cell Style Properties

  • Cell styles are specified by a style object that roughly parallels the OpenXML structure.
  • Style properties currently supported are: alignment, border, fill, font, numFmt.
Style Prop Sub Prop Default Description/Values
alignment vertical bottom "top" or "center" or "bottom"
horizontal left "left" or "center" or "right"
wrapText false true or false
textRotation 0 0 to 180, or 255 // 180 is rotated down 180 degrees, 255 is special, aligned vertically
border top { style: BORDER_STYLE, color: COLOR_STYLE }
bottom { style: BORDER_STYLE, color: COLOR_STYLE }
left { style: BORDER_STYLE, color: COLOR_STYLE }
right { style: BORDER_STYLE, color: COLOR_STYLE }
diagonal { style: BORDER_STYLE, color: COLOR_STYLE, diagonalUp: true/false, diagonalDown: true/false }
fill patternType "none" "solid" or "none"
fgColor foreground color: see COLOR_STYLE

numFmt 0 Ex: "0" // integer index to built in formats, see StyleBuilder.SSF property
Ex: "0.00%" // string matching a built-in format, see StyleBuilder.SSF
Ex: "0.0%" // string specifying a custom format
Ex: "0.00%;\\(0.00%\\);\\-;@" // string specifying a custom format, escaping special characters
Ex: "m/dd/yy" // string a date format using Excel's format notation

COLOR_STYLE {object} Properties

Colors for border, fill, font are specified as an name/value object - use one of the following:

Color Prop Description Example
rgb hex RGB value {rgb: "FFCC00"}
theme theme color index {theme: 4} // (0-n) // Theme color index 4 ("Blue, Accent 1")
tint tint by percent {theme: 1, tint: 0.4} // ("Blue, Accent 1, Lighter 40%")

BORDER_STYLE {string} Properties

Border style property is one of the following values:

  • dashDotDot
  • dashDot
  • dashed
  • dotted
  • hair
  • mediumDashDotDot
  • mediumDashDot
  • mediumDashed
  • medium
  • slantDashDot
  • thick
  • thin

Border Notes

Borders for merged areas are specified for each cell within the merged area. For example, to apply a box border to a merged area of 3x3 cells, border styles would need to be specified for eight different cells:

  • left borders (for the three cells on the left)
  • right borders (for the cells on the right)
  • top borders (for the cells on the top)
  • bottom borders (for the cells on the left)
