How do I create a border around a  set of merged cells?

HSSFSheet sheet = hssfworkbook.CreateSheet("new sheet");

CellRangeAddress region = new CellRangeAddress(2, 4, 2, 4);

short color = HSSFColor.RED.index;
CellBorderType borderType = CellBorderType.THIN;
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetRightBorderColor(color, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetBorderRight(borderType, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetLeftBorderColor(color, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetBorderLeft(borderType, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetTopBorderColor(color, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetBorderTop(borderType, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetBottomBorderColor(color, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);
            HSSFRegionUtil.SetBorderBottom(borderType, region, sheet, hssfworkbook);

Hey I found it here

using NPOI.HSSF.UserModel.Contrib;


 For future use: To search for a class in namespace

  1. Place the cursor on the text 'class name' in your code window.
  2. Press and hold the keys Alt+Shift+F10.
