method XL MBS XL Plugin 24.2 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes All
Adds a conditional formatting rule that highlights cells that are above or below the average for all values in the range.

Format: the conditional format used for highlighting cells, use the addConditionalFormat() for adding conditional formats;
aboveAverage: true for [above average] rule, false for [below average] rule;
equalAverage: true for inclusive of the average itself, false for exclusive of that value, valid only for [above average] rule;
stdDev: the number of standard deviations to include above or below the average, valid only for [above average] rule;
stopIfTrue: if true, no rules with lower priority may be applied over this rule, when this rule is true.

XLConditionalFormattingMBS.AddOpNumRule(op as Integer, format as XLConditionalFormatMBS, value1 as double, value2 as double = 0.0, stopIfTrue as Boolean = false)

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
method XL MBS XL Plugin 24.2 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes All
Adds a conditional formatting rule that highlights cells whose values are compared with a calculated result, using an operator.
Example
// highlighting cells that more than the specified value

const COLOR_LIGHTGREEN = 42

Var cFormat As XLConditionalFormatMBS = book.addConditionalFormat()
cFormat.FillPattern = cFormat.FillPatternSolid
cFormat.PatternBackgroundColor = COLOR_LIGHTGREEN

Var cf As XLConditionalFormattingMBS = sheet.addConditionalFormatting()
cf.addRange(3, 10, 2, 2)
cf.addOpNumRule(cf.FormatOperatorGreaterThan, cFormat, 90)

op: the operator in the conditional formatting rule, see the list of operators below;
Format: the conditional format used for highlighting cells, use the addConditionalFormat() for adding conditional formats;
value1: the numeric value for the expression with the specified operator;
value2: the numeric second optional value for the expression only for some operators;
stopIfTrue: if true, no rules with lower priority may be applied over this rule, when this rule is true.
