Public API Changes in Aspose.Cells 8.7.2

Added APIs

Extended the Default Calculation Engine

Aspose.Cells APIs have powerful calculation engine that can calculate almost all of the Microsoft Excel functions. Moreover, the Aspose.Cells APIs now allow to extend the default calculation engine to meet custom calculation requirements of any application.

Following APIs have been added with the release of Aspose.Cells for Java 8.7.2.

  1. AbstractCalculationEngine Class
  2. CalculationData Class
  3. CalculationOptions.CustomEngine Property

Following is the simple usage scenario.


 public class CustomEngine extends AbstractCalculationEngine


	public void calculate(CalculationData data)




                    double val = (double)data.getCalculatedValue();

                    val = val + 30;





Added Overloaded Indexer for TextBoxCollection

Aspose.Cells for Java 8.7.2 has exposed the overloaded indexer for the TextBoxCollection class in order to access the instance of TextBox using its name as String.

Simple usage scenario looks as follow.


 //Create an instance of Workbook

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

//Access the first Worksheet from the collection

Worksheet sheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0);

//Add a TextBox to the collection

int idx = sheet.getTextBoxes().add(10, 10, 10, 10);

//Access the TextBox using its index

TextBox box = sheet.getTextBoxes().get(idx);

//Set the name for the TextBox


//Access the same TextBox via its name

box = sheet.getTextBoxes().get("MyTextBox");
