Problem with Styles- not applied consistently

I think there are some problems with style handling in Aspose.Cells v4.4.3.2. I prepared a test case, the code is below.

The code tries to set some cells background-color and border-color independently. If the code is executed…

  • Cells F5, G5, H5, I5, J5 do not have a border color.
  • Almost all cells from rows 7, 8, 9 do not have a border color. Actually only cell A7 has a border color.

I think the following would have been correct.

  • All cells from columns A-J should have a border color.
  • All cells between A1 and E3 should have a background color.
  • All cells from rows 7,8,9 should have a background color.

Hi,

Could you try the attached version.

The following conditions should be implemented.

  • All cells between A1 and E3 should have a background color.
  • All cells from rows 7,8,9 should have a background color.
  • Related borders, we will check the issue soon.

    Thank you.

    Thank’s a lot for the answer.

    This is a dotnet runtime v1 version? It would be good, if always both versions of the DLL were posted here in the forum. It would be even better, if they were not posted at all, but saved at a central location where they could then be downloaded. That way we could find new versions without searching through the forum.

    Also with Aspose.Cells v4.4.3.2 - that is the version that I used today - the background color has been correct in all cases. It has been the border color which is not handled correctly by Aspose.Cells. The problems were

    • Cells F5, G5, H5, I5, J5 do not have a border color.
    • Almost all cells from rows 7, 8, 9 do not have a border color. Actually only cell A7 has a border color.

    Also with this new v4.4.3.13 these problems can be seen.
