Preselect different default styles of a spreadsheet when creating an xlsx file, set font to ‘Arial’, or ‘Verdana’, or any available font, change font size to a bigger or a smaller one, make the font bold, italic, or underlined. All these settings are attainable when coding with PhpSpreadsheet.

Requirements:

  • Composer
  • PHP 7.2 or newer

Step 1.

Setup dependencies.

{
    "require": {
        "phpoffice/phpspreadsheet": "^1.3"
    }
}

Step 2.

Install phpspreadsheet.

$ composer install

Step 3.

Create a new PHP file, and start coding.

<?php

// Autoload dependencies
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

// Import the core class of PhpSpreadsheet
use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Spreadsheet;

// Import the Xlsx writer class
use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Writer\Xlsx;

// Create a new Spreadsheet object
$spreadsheet = new Spreadsheet();

// Set default font type to 'Verdana'
$spreadsheet->getDefaultStyle()->getFont()->setName('Verdana');

// Set default font size to '12'
$spreadsheet->getDefaultStyle()->getFont()->setSize(12);

// Set default font style to italic
$spreadsheet->getDefaultStyle()->getFont()->setItalic(true);

// Retrieve the current active worksheet
$sheet = $spreadsheet->getActiveSheet();

// Set cell A1 with the "Hello World !" string value
$sheet->setCellValue('A1', 'Hello World !');

// Write a new .xlsx file
$writer = new Xlsx($spreadsheet);

// Save the new .xlsx file
$writer->save('create-xlsx-files-with-default-style-settings.xlsx');

Test.

Run the following codes.

$ php create-xlsx-files-with-default-style-settings.php

Result.

Open the generated file create-xlsx-files-with-default-style-settings.xlsx.

// Set default font type to 'Verdana'
$spreadsheet->getDefaultStyle()->getFont()->setName('Verdana');

// Set default font size to '12'
$spreadsheet->getDefaultStyle()->getFont()->setSize(12);

// Set default font style to italic
$spreadsheet->getDefaultStyle()->getFont()->setItalic(true);

Default.
