Update designed textbox

Hello,

I’m trying to update (add chars to the end of text) currently placed and designed textbox in my template. The text inside the textbox has a different styles so it’s impossible to get style and apply it after.

See attached example.
I try edit both TextBox and Shape object:

Shape tBox = worksheet.Shapes[“TB1”];
tBox.Text += " lalala";
- or -
TextBox tBox = worksheet.TextBoxes[“TB1”];
tBox.Text += " lalala";

but result is the same.
Could you, please, help me to understand, what am I doing wrong?

Regards,
Jek

Hi,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

It is working good in the latest version. I have tested this issue with the following sample code. Please check the sample excel file used in this code and the output excel file generated by the code for your reference.


Latest Version Links:

Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.1.7 (.NET 2.0) compiled in .NET Framework 2.0.
Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.1.7 (.NET 4.0) compiled in .NET Framework 4.0.


C#
Workbook wb = new Workbook(“sample.xlsx”);
Worksheet worksheet = wb.Worksheets[0];

Shape tBox = worksheet.Shapes[0];
tBox.Text += " lalala";

wb.Save(“o.xlsx”);

Hello,

Thank you for such a quick response.
The main idea is a number of different fonts in textbox.
Attaching sample file and o.xlsx - a result of your code using the last version, attached by you.

Hi again,


Please use the Shape.TextBody property to append contents to Textbox’s text. Please check the following piece of code and give it a try on your end.

C#

Workbook wb = new Workbook(path + “sample.xlsx”);
Worksheet worksheet = wb.Worksheets[0];
Shape tBox = worksheet.Shapes[0];
tBox.TextBody.AppendText(" lalala");
wb.Save(path + “dest.xlsx”);

Thank you for your answer.
It works ok for me.
Good job.
