Shape absolute positioning


Can you help me please with following task:
I need to receive a absoluting position of image, but methods getLeft and getTop returns paddings in cell. (Source code presented below)

public void imagesTest() throws Exception{
Workbook wb = new Workbook(“D://img.xlsx”);

Worksheet ws = wb.getWorksheets().get(0);

Shape image = ws.getShapes().get(0);

System.out.println("Left "+image.getLeft());
System.out.println("Top "+image.getTop());
System.out.println("Width "+image.getWidth());
System.out.println("Height "+image.getHeight());

Best regards. Alexey

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

Kindly explain the absolute positioning in terms of Excel in some screenshot so that we could log a New Feature request for this issue.

It will help us look into your requirements closely and we might be able to implement it in our future releases.


In my example i need some methods, that should return

//Should prints some like “91” - 3 is padding in cell and 88 is top of upperleftrow

//Should prints some like “20” - 20 is padding in cell and 0 is left of upperleftcolumn (because columns A,B,C are hidden)

There is exists some like this methods?

(I have attached image with measurements)

Best regards. Alexey
