Value1 of Aspose.Cells.Validation contains wrong entry

Hi,

we are accessing the Value1 porperty of validation to check for correct values in Excel-dropdowns. Unfortunately, we observed that when there are umlauts (ä, ö, ü) in the dropdown, Value1 contains a “?” instead of the umlaut. Attached you find a sample xlsx.

In when you access the Value1 property of the Validation assigned to cell D12 you will find the entry “Bitte w?hlen” in position zero of the object array. The correct entry should be “Bitte wählen”.

Please provide a fix.

Thanks,
Birgit

Hi,


Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

Please download and use the latest version 17.5 (you can download it from Downloads section), it is giving the correct value. Please see this screenshot. As you can see, Validation.Value1 property is showing the correct value.

Hi,

I tried the latest version of Aspose.Cells. However, the entry is still wrong (see screenshot). We are using a German locale. Maybe it is a problem with the encoding?

Thanks,
Birgit

Hi,

could you try the attached sample file. When I run this code:

Aspose.Cells.Workbook workbook = new Aspose.Cells.Workbook(excelPath);
Aspose.Cells.Validation val = workbook.Worksheets[6].Cells[“D12”].GetValidation();

Value1[0] is “Bitte w?hlen” instead of “Bitte wählen”.

Can you now reproduce the issue?

Thanks,
Birgit

@bkrack,

I tested your scenario/issue using our latest version/fix: Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.7.x with your sample code and original template file, it works fine and as expected. See the screenshot for your reference:

By the way, do you mean the printed value in CMD display? For your information, Console.WriteLine(vals[0]); cannot print umlauts (ä, ö, ü).

Thank you.

@bkrack
