Overview of Spreadsheet control
The spreadsheet is one of the most often used business tools.
The "Spreadsheet" control is a native control: it doesn't require a spreadsheet software to be installed on the computer (and therefore no license to manage).
With this control, no more navigation between applications, no external software to control!
Some benefits of this control:
  • The content of Spreadsheet control can be saved (or loaded) in Excel format directly (XLSX format).
  • The Spreadsheet control is compatible with Excel, OpenOfficeCalc, FreeOffice, ...
  • The Spreadsheet control reads the worksheets coming from Excel (XLSX).
This compatibility allows you to re-use existing spreadsheets or to re-use calculations performed in the Spreadsheet control.
Caution: The protected worksheets and the locked cells are not supported by the Spreadsheet control.
The Spreadsheet control can be used:
