Spreadsheets: Sophisticated references

See original GitHub issue

Feature suggestion


Please add alternative coordinates to the hardcoded CellReference, or MergeCell.Reference etc.

Ideally, there should be few more types like:

  • ColumnReference { int Index, string ColumnName } (e.g. A as in A1). Should provide easy casting between both string and int
  • RowReference { int index } (e.g. 1 as in A1)
  • CellReference { ColumnReference Column, RowReference Row } (e.g. ABC123)
  • Range { CellReference Start , CellReference End } (e.g. A1:A32) Also need to accommodate for A:A.

Would you consider that? I’m willing to contribute.
