Code description

The package we need to import is*,java.util.* ,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSheet, org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel. HSSFPrintSetup, org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFTextbox, org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRichTextString, org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFPatriarch, org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFClientAnchor, org.apache. poi.hssf.usermodel. HSSFSimpleShape and org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel. HSSFWorkbook.
The org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRichTextString class extends extends java.lang.Object and implements java.lang.Comparable.The 
rich text unicode string and  can have fonts applied to arbitary parts of the string. There is a static short keyword  NO_FONT is used that there is no font can applied.
There are two constructor for HSSFRichTextString:


2.HSSFRichTextString(java.lang.String string) 

org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSimpleShape class is extended by org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFTextbox class and the org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFTextbox class is extends HSSFSimpleShape.A textbox is a shape that may hold a rich text string.
