Text Alignment issues

Howdy,


I have encounter an issue with textbox text alignments and wondered if there has been a change to the way it used to work. Originally this textbox was fine in previous versions but now is doing something different. The text was being aligned correctly but now, the second line doesn’t align to the centre and vertical alignment is set to middle centred, meaning if you changed the horizontal alignment to left or right, it doesn’t go to the edge of the textbox. Here is the following code:

<pre style=“background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-family: “Courier New”; font-size: 9pt;”>final Workbook wb = new Workbook();
final Worksheet ws = wb.getWorksheets().get(0);

TextBox t = ws.getTextBoxes().get(
ws.getTextBoxes().add(
3,
3,
100,
100));

t.setText(“Line 1\nLine2”);
t.setTextVerticalAlignment(TextAlignmentType.CENTER);
t.setTextHorizontalAlignment(TextAlignmentType.CENTER);
wb.save(“C:/export/Test Report.xlsx”);
Desktop.getDesktop().open(new File(“C:/export/Test Report.xlsx”));

Hi,


Thanks for the sample code segment.

I have tested your scenario/ case using your sample code and using our latest version/fix: Aspose.Cells for Java v16.11.4, it works fine. I could not find any issue. I have attached the output file. Could you check and let us know what’s wrong with it? Also provide your output files via v16.11.4 and older version (also give version details), we will check it soon.

Thank you.

Howdy,


I’ve opened the output you have linked and it shows the same problem. I have attached a report that has the result textbox on the left and a textbox on the right that it should be showing. Also note the Textbox vertical alignment options under Format Shape for each one.

To note, the first version I was using where the textbox was working was 8.7.0. I updated the project to 16.11.0 since its the most current version for a Maven project and this is where the issue came up. I’ve checked 16.11.4 as an external library and the results are the same as 16.11.0.

Hi James,


Thank you for sharing the comparison. Please try the following piece of code which produces the expected results (attached).

Java

final Workbook wb = new Workbook();
final Worksheet ws = wb.getWorksheets().get(0);
TextBox shape = ws.getTextBoxes().get(
ws.getTextBoxes().add(
3,
3,
100,
100));
shape.setText(“Line 1\nLine2”);

//Access the first paragraph and set its horizontal alignment to center.
TextParagraph p = shape.getTextBody().getTextParagraphs().get(0);
p.setAlignmentType(TextAlignmentType.CENTER);

//Access the second paragraph and set its horizontal alignment to center.
p = shape.getTextBody().getTextParagraphs().get(1);
p.setAlignmentType(TextAlignmentType.CENTER);

//Set vertical alignment of all contents.
shape.setTextVerticalAlignment(TextAlignmentType.CENTER);

wb.save(dir + “Test Report.xlsx”);

Thank you Babar, it appears to be working correctly.
