Aspose.Cells in Delphi as a visual component (ActiveX)

Hi,
we are evaluating Aspose.Cells for use in our existing Delphi product (VCL - not .NET).
We need to implement an excel-like visual component (ActiveX).
Is this possible with Aspose.Cells?
We had a look to “Using Aspose.Cells for .NET via COM Interop”
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/cellsnet/Using+Aspose.Cells+for+.NET+via+COM+Interop
but Aspose.Cells is not registered as an ActiveX in Windows during installation and we also tried to register it manually with no success.
Also we tried to import the tlb-file, but it didn’t work because there are several classnames that are identically to delphi standard classnames (i.e. TBevel).
Could you please give us some hints how we can solve these problems?
Best regards
Stephen Hahn

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your posting and considering Aspose.Cells.

Aspose.Cells is not a visual ActiveX control that you can use on your WinForm/Desktop applications. It is actually a class library that can be used to create or manipulate Excel files without the need to install Microsoft Excel.

It can be registered as a COM component so that it could be used in C++, classic ASP, or any other language that could use COM component.

If you run the following command, Aspose.Cells will register itself as COM component.

regasm “C:\Program Files\Aspose\Aspose.Cells\bin\net2.0\Aspose.Cells.DLL” /codebase
