Export Chart from Aspose.Excel- License for WebService



I am evaluating Aspose.Excel and I am quite impressed! I could not find answers for the following questions:

Is there any way to export created charts from a Worksheet?
I want to run Aspose.Excel.dll on a web server where Aspose.Excel.dll would be called from another DLL assembly (which in turn is called by the Web Service). Thus, Aspose.Excel.dll would never be called from the Web Service directly. Do I need a Windows license? If not, what would I have to supply for the ‘Page’ parameter in the Excel class constructor?
Can the license file be in any folder on the server as long as I supply the correct license file path?

Thanks very much


Hi Andreas,

Currently Aspose.Excel doesn’t support the feature to export chart from a worksheet. We are thinking of supplying these feature but I think it will not be available in a short time. Could you tell me your expected date for this feature?

About other two questions about license, I posted them at http://www.aspose.com/forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=5312. Ben will answer these questions.


Dear Andreas,

Please check http://www.aspose.com/forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=5312#5314.

BTW, for licensing,purchasing, please post there.


Hi Laurence,

Thank you for your quick reply. Exporting Charts from a worksheet would be required immediately (I know - everything is ‘immediately’…). I would not need full blown export funcionality, a handle to the underlying graphics object or whatever would be sufficient (it is a WMF or EMF, isn’t it?).

Many thanks anyway


Hi Andreas,

Unfortunately MS Excel doesn’t manipulate chart as graphics objects. It save charts in its proprietary formats. So there isn’t an easy way to expose such feature.
