How to access Excel document properties using WinForms XlsIO?
The Excel document properties can be accessed by IBuiltInDocumentProperties interface. The below code sample illustrates on how to access all the Excel document properties using XlsIO.
IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Open(inputPath, ExcelOpenType.Automatic); //Accessing the BuiltInDocumnet properties. IBuiltInDocumentProperties builtInDocumentProperties = book.BuiltInDocumentProperties; string author = builtInDocumentProperties.Author; string applicationName = builtInDocumentProperties.ApplicationName; string comments = builtInDocumentProperties.Comments; string company = builtInDocumentProperties.Company; DateTime creationDate = builtInDocumentProperties.CreationDate; TimeSpan editTime = builtInDocumentProperties.EditTime; string keywords = builtInDocumentProperties.Keywords; string lastAuthor = builtInDocumentProperties.LastAuthor; DateTime lastPrinted = builtInDocumentProperties.LastPrinted; DateTime lastSaveDate = builtInDocumentProperties.LastSaveDate; bool linksDirty = builtInDocumentProperties.LinksDirty; string manager = builtInDocumentProperties.Manager; string presentationTarget = builtInDocumentProperties.PresentationTarget; string revisionNumber = builtInDocumentProperties.RevisionNumber; string subject = builtInDocumentProperties.Subject; string template = builtInDocumentProperties.Template; string title = builtInDocumentProperties.Title;
'Step 1 : Instantiate the spreadsheet creation engine. Dim excelEngine As ExcelEngine = New ExcelEngine() 'Step 2 : Instantiate the excel application object. Dim application As IApplication = excelEngine.Excel Dim inputPath As String = GetFullTemplatePath("Sample.xlsx") Dim workbook As IWorkbook = application.Workbooks.Open(inputPath, ExcelOpenType.Automatic) 'The Accessing the BuiltInDocumentProperties. Dim builtInDocumentProperties As IBuiltInDocumentProperties = book.BuiltInDocumentProperties Dim author As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Author Dim applicationName As String = builtInDocumentProperties.ApplicationName Dim comments As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Comments Dim company As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Company Dim creationDate As DateTime = builtInDocumentProperties.CreationDate Dim editTime As TimeSpan = builtInDocumentProperties.EditTime Dim keywords As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Keywords Dim lastAuthor As String = builtInDocumentProperties.LastAuthor Dim lastPrinted As DateTime = builtInDocumentProperties.LastPrinted Dim lastSaveDate As DateTime = builtInDocumentProperties.LastSaveDate Dim linksDirty As Boolean = builtInDocumentProperties.LinksDirty Dim manager As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Manager Dim presentationTarget As String = builtInDocumentProperties.PresentationTarget Dim revisionNumber As String = builtInDocumentProperties.RevisionNumber Dim subject As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Subject Dim template As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Template Dim title As String = builtInDocumentProperties.Title
