The RangeTemplate is a very powerful feature allowing the user or developer to define a template of cell ranges as a single CellType and apply that template to a cell to load different data into the template. This could include multiple rows and/or columns, for example allowing you to display a card view in one cell.

To create a RangeTemplate , follow this example: The following is the API definition: The parameters row, col, rowCount, and colCount are optional. If those parameters not set, the whole sheet row will be used to create the RangeTemplate. Here is an example of creating a RangeTemplate with a defined row and column count: You can customize your bindingPath or formula in the template WorkSheet. The RangeTemplate will then use the cell value as the datasource to resolve the bindingPath or formula in the designated range. Conditional rules, data validation, sparkline data & date ranges, sparklineEx, and formulas can refer to a cell or cell range and they must be contained within the RangeTemplate. In addition, the spans in template WorkSheet must be completely contained inside the RangeTemplate. The RangeTemplate does not support nesting other RangeTemplates, as it may lose data or cause an endless loop.
