Remarks

Use the DisplayReference property to specify what should be displayed for each "sheet tab" of the workbook view control.

DisplayReference takes a comma separated list of formulas which must return a range. These formulas are evaluated each time a calculation completes in the workbook set associated with the workbook view control, by calling the SpreadsheetGear.ISheet.EvaluateRange method of the first worksheet of the first workbook of the workbook set.

Examples of valid settings for DisplayReference include:

Use the DisplayReferenceName property to specify the text to display on each "sheet tab".

Example
/*
         * Demonstrate DisplayReference and DisplayReferenceName usage.
         */
        private void radioButton_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (radioButtonWorkbook.Checked)
            {
                // Change the display reference to a workbook.
                workbookView.DisplayReference = "Book2";
                workbookView.DisplayReferenceName = null;
            }
            else if (radioButtonWorksheet.Checked)

                workbookView.DisplayReference = "[Book1]Sheet1!A:IV";
