Call shapes


We have Aspose.Cells and we need to put shapes like "calls" in workbooks, so we would like to know if this version supports this kind of shapes (see please attached file for shapes like "calls").

Thanks beforehand.

Hi Alejandro,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Well, Callouts are supported for Excel 2003 file format at the moment. You may add them by using the following sample code.

Workbook wkb = new Workbook();

Worksheet sheet = wkb.Worksheets[0];

Aspose.Cells.Shape shape = sheet.Shapes.AddAutoShape(Aspose.Cells.AutoShapeType.CloudCallout, 2, 10, 3, 10, 100, 100);


I have added a feature enhancement request (callouts in Excel 2007 file formats) in our internal issue tracking system with issue id : CELLSNET-15773. We will look into this feature and get back to you soon.

Thank You & Best Regards,


┬┐Any news about this?

We try to provide an eta for the feature (Callout shapes for MS Excel 2007), we will get back to you soon.

Thank you.


To update you further, it is a complex feature but hopefully we can provide you the supported version before the end of June 2010.

Thanks for your understanding!

Thanks for the information.
