HtmlSaveOptions.setExportGridLines does not render to HTML

Hi Aspose team

As the scenario mentioned in this thread:

1. HtmlSaveOptions.setExportGridLines does not render grid lines to HTML.
2. With our custom method fixCellStyle, which adds the gray grid lines and ignores the cell’s borders style already exists, some borders did changed its style to grid lines

I Open this thread for problem #1, and we will keep tracking these 2 problem as well
Thanks your help :slight_smile:

Hi Shakeel.Faiz

Grid lines can be observed in the result. But some part of it cannot be rendered correctly in the result from the another file.

Please see the files in the attachment


Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

The chart which is not getting rendered is actually a Surface chart. We are afraid, Aspose.Cells does not support rendering of Surface chart. So surface chart is not supported. Please use some other chart instead of surface chart.

We have already logged an issue of support surface chart but it is not in our plans to support it in near future and it might take years to support it. However we have linked your thread to existing issue. Once, there is some news for you, we will update you asap.

Hi Shakeel.Faiz

I am sorry about misunderstanding about this issue.
But actually I mean some part of grid lines are not rendered correctly, not the chart.
