filling color in excel using jsp

                         

In this program we are going to create a sheet  and then  fill background color ,pattern and forground color in the sheet.
 
Code description 
The package we need to import is  java.io.*,java.util.* ,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSheet,org.apache. poi.hssf.usermodel.
 HSSFColor,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFCell,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRow,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.
 HSSFCellstyle
and org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel. HSSFWorkbook.
 

The method used in this example shift row
setFillForegroundColor(HSSFColor.ORANGE.index):
This method is used to fill the for ground color of the style sheet. 

setFillPattern(HSSFCellStyle.SOLID_FOREGROUND);:
This method is used to fill the pattern how it look like.

setFillBackgroundColor(HSSFColor.RED.index):
This method is used to fill the background color.

You can be used the following fields in place of above 
 
The color fields are:
HSSFColor.AQUA ,HSSFColor.BLACK,HSSFColor.BLUE ,HSSFColor.BLUE_GREY,HSSFColor.BRIGHT_GREEN,HSSFColor
 ,HSSFColor.BROWN, HSSFColor.CORAL ,HSSFColor.CORNFLOWER_BLUE,HSSFColor.DARK_BLUE ,HSSFColor.

 DARK_GREEN, HSSFColor. DARK_RED ,HSSFColor.DARK_TEAL,HSSFColor.DARK_YELLOW,HSSFColor.GOLD,
HSSFColor.GREEN ,  HSSFColor. GREY_25_PERCENT,HSSFColor.GREY_40_PERCENT ,HSSFColor.GREY_50_PERCENT,
  HSSFColor.GREY_80_PERCENT ,HSSFColor.INDIGO,HSSFColor.LAVENDER ,HSSFColor.LEMON_CHIFFON,HSSFColor.
 LIGHT_BLUE , HSSFColor .LIGHT_CORNFLOWER_BLUE,HSSFColor.LIGHT_GREEN ,HSSFColor.LIGHT_ORANGE,
  HSSFColor. LIGHT_TURQUOISE ,HSSFColor.LIGHT_YELLOW,HSSFColor. LIME,HSSFColor.MAROON,HSSFColor.
 OLIVE_GREEN ,HSSFColor.ORANGE,HSSFColor.ORCHID ,HSSFColor.PALE_BLUE,HSSFColor.PINK ,HSSFColor.PLUM,
 HSSFColor.RED , HSSFColor.ROSE,HSSFColor.ROYAL_BLUE ,HSSFColor.SEA_GREEN,HSSFColor.SKY_BLUE ,HSSFColor.
 TAN,HSSFColor. TEAL HSSFColor.TURQUOISE,HSSFColor.VIOLET ,HSSFColor.WHITE,HSSFColor.YELLOW

And the pattern fields are:
NO_FILL, SOLID_FOREGROUND, FINE_DOTS, ALT_BARS, SPARSE_DOTS, THICK_HORZ_BANDS, THICK_VERT_BANDS,
  THICK_BACKWARD_DIAG, THICK_FORWARD_DIAG, BIG_SPOTS, BRICKS, THIN_HORZ_BANDS, THIN_VERT_BANDS, THIN_BACKWARD_DIAG, THIN_FORWARD_DIAG, SQUARES, DIAMONDS .

In this example we are creating the sheet and four style sheet .Then we set the fill color of forground ,pattern and background color .Then at last we add the style sheet into cellls and finally we add the cells into sheet. The output of  the example is shown below

 The code of the program is given below:

    HSSFCell cell3 = row.createCell((short4);

    style3.setFillPattern(HSSFCellStyle.SOLID_FOREGROUND);
    style4.setFillForegroundColor(HSSFColor.BLUE.index);
    style4.setFillPattern(HSSFCellStyle.SOLID_FOREGROUND);
    cell.setCellStyle(style);
    cell1.setCellStyle(style1);
    cell2.setCellStyle(style2);
    cell3.setCellStyle(style3);
    cell4.setCellStyle(style4);
  
   FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream
(
"C:\\excel\\fillsColor.xls");
    hwb.write(fileOut);
    fileOut.close();
    out.println("Your excel file has been generated");
     catch Exception ex ) {
