I am working with a template that incorporates several activeX elements (mostly Forms.TextBox.). (The template cannot be changed due to the fact that it is one of our customers master templates. Neither can it be submitted here as it contains confidential information, that cannot be sanitised easily due to complex macros and cross-referencing).When I try accessing those from my Java code they turn out to be of class com.aspose.cells.Picture no matter what the original type of the element was. Furthermore I am able to manipulate the Java object (e.g. setText() etc.) and the changes show in the Java when using appropriate getter methods in system.out's but textboxes in the excel element come up as empty after saving the workbook.
From various posts on the forum (e.g. http://www.aspose.com/community/forums/227568/winform-controls-in-a-worksheet/showthread.aspx#227568) I gather that the Aspose.cells product family does not support full use of ActiveX elements, like getter/setter functionality for content and properties. Am I correct in in this assumption ? If so, is there any plan and/or schedule for future implementation of ActiveX support for Aspose.cells for Java. Please advise on any plans on Asposes behalf to implement this additional functionality.
Thank you very much in advance for your reply
