Shapes not represented properly in gridweb

dear support.

Thank you for your great product.

I have attached an Excel spreadsheet that I want to load in a gridweb.
The spreadhseet contains shapes with lines between them.
Unfortunately, the shapes do not line up properly when loaded in the gridweb - their location is different than in the original excel file.

thank you

Hi Guido,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

Kindly provide us your sample project replicating this issue. It will help us investigate this issue appropriately and if we find any issue, we will report it to development team for a fix.

Hi Guido,

Sorry, the link text was wrong, you are using the right version i.e

Could you please provide the sample project so that I could run or test it at my end?

please find attached the Visula studio code.

There is nothing special about the code.
please have a look and advise


Hi Guido,

Thanks for your sample project and using Aspose.Cells.

It seems, the issue is occurring because Aspose.Cells for GridWeb is unable to find/use the path of acw_client directory. So I have commented this line

GridWeb1.ACWClientPath = "F:\acw_client"

and added these lines in Web.config file

<add key=“aspose.cells.gridweb.acw_client_path” value=“GridWeb/acw_client”/>

I also added the GridWeb and acw_client directories in the virtual directory. Please see the screenshot of the changes I made highlighted in red.

Please download the project and run it at your end to see the results now.

it now works perfect !!!

I have never seenm such a great support from any software vendor !!!
thnaks a lot.
I have never regretted having bought this !

dear support,

I have loaded version 8.4 of the gridweb component and it seems my previous issue is reappearing. This seemed to work in earlier versions.

The problem is that the shapes are not located properly in the gridweb components.
I have appended my project, source excel file and a screenshot of the resulting webpage.

In a previous mail, you suggested to inlcude the path to the acw_client directory. I have done this, but this does not seem to resolve my problem

Also, it seems column A is sometimes disappearing - maybe this is related.

thanks for your much appreciated help.
