Partially Format Exported Excel Cell

I'm wondering if it is possible to create a feature to partially format a cell value from the exported Excel?


For example, I have a string like "Payment Terms: Please pay the full amount..." I only want bold text on "Payment Terms:".

Hi Roinand,

The Spreadsheet cells now support HTML which can be used to achieve the described scenario.

Closing the item as Completed, however feel free to reach out to us in case you have further questions.

Hi Roinand,

May I ask you to clarify a bit this specific feature requirement, that you would like to achieve? When do you need to format this part of the text? Inside the spreadsheet widget the cells are allowed to accept only string values and no HTML. As a consequence, the client-side Excel export functionality would not allow such feature too. That might be possible to be implemented on the server side, when using the RadSpreadProcessing library.
