Importing an existing spreadsheet

We would like to be able to upload an existing .xls file into a browser-based app. (.NET MVC pattern) and display as a user-editable spreadsheet (from the ASPOSE library i.e. don’t want to write this ourselves), with all the usual bells and whistles. Finally we would like to save the data back into the same or another .xls file.

It looks like this can’t be done, but before I give up I thought I’d better check.


Hi Dale,

Thank you for considering Aspose APIs.

We have the Aspose.Cells.GridWeb component that can be used in ASP.NET WebForm applications to display the spreadsheets in web interface, where users can interact with the spreadsheet with a subset of features offered by Excel application. Unfortunately, the Aspose.Cells.GridWeb component is not compatible with MVC framework. We are already working to enhance the said component to make it compatible with MVC applications. We have now attached an appropriate ticket (CELLSNET-42334) from our database so that you could be notified automatically once the required feature is available for public use.

Thanks for considering Aspose.Cells for GridWeb.

Here is a workaround for integrating GridWeb control into MVC project.

Please check our projects and let us know your feedback.

First Project, use ignoreroute

Navigate to http://localhost:40249/GridWebDemo/WebForm1.aspx

Second Project, it is more mvc way, but we need to set readonly for GridWeb.

Navigate to http://localhost:53708/ViewPage1

but actually if we want to use mvc data model way to cooperate with GridWeb serverside business logic, we need to do more heavy work, as we need to rewrite all the serverside business logic to cooperate with MVC way, so we will put it into schedule in future.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as CELLSNET-42334) have been fixed in Aspose.Cells for .NET v19.8. This message was posted using BugNotificationTool from Downloads module by Amjad_Sahi
