Farpoint issue with Microsoft Excel Copy paste

    Hi Farpoint,

    Recently, an issue is reported that when the user copy some data from Excel and after that copy some other data from my application (or any other application). On pasting the data onto excel sheet (via Ctrl + V or Excel’s popup menu) the inserted data is not the latest one rather Excel retains the data last time copied from it. Moreover, we observed that the issue arise because the MS Excel somehow retains its selection (Marching ants border) when user performs copy operation on other application. As per my observation, this have to do something with Farpoint spread because as soon as I close the application which is using Farpoint Excel copy paste works fine but if any application using Farpoint spread is running ( even in minimized state), Excel selection (Marching ants selection) does not remove on copy event which results that the latest copied content are not properly pasted in Excel.

    Currently, I am using the application with Farpoint Spread for Windows form 5 (.Net framework 3.5) with Microsoft Excel 2010 (32-bit) on windows7. To reproduce the issue please go thru the support documents attached.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Maverick.

    Thank you Manpreet kaur,

    I have upgraded Farpoint Spread to v5.0.3522 and the problem seems to be resolved in demo application. I will get back to you after detailed testing over actual application.

    Moreover, Can you please guide me in regard to:

    1. How to find detailed release notes or details of fixed bugs in update 5.0.3522? I will really appriciate if you can provide me some detailed document so that I have track if some work around can be removed from our application or any of my already reported bugs (i.e. 99922160, 99922963 , 99921053) is fixed in the update. I found a page regarding the fixed bugs but they are very brief to understand the actual problem.

    2. How would Farpoint recommend to upgrade project which is currently using Farpoint Spread for windows form v5.0.3518 to v5.0.3522?

    Thanks & Regards,

    Maverick.

    Hello,

    1. You can find the detailed list of fixes made in Spread v 5.0.xx22 at the following link:

            http://www.fpoint.com/support/problems/spreadwin50.aspx

    However, I would like you to know that the bug numbers mentioned by you in the last post are not fixed yet, they would be fixed in the future maintenance releases of Spread.

    2. You can follow the following steps to update your project to use Spread v5.0.xx22:

        a. Open the project in Visual studio.

        b. Delete the Licenses.licx file from the properties folder.

        c. Remove all the old references from the project by right clicking on the references folder, selecting all the references of Spread and then right click and remove the same.

        d. Now, add the new references by browsing to the following location:

             C:\Program Files\Grapecity\Spread.WinForms.5.dotNet35\v5.0.xx22\bin

       e. Open the form in the designer, it would create the new licenses.licx file.

       f. Rebuild the project.

    The project would be updated to use the latest version of Spread 5.

    Hope it will help you. Please let me know if you have any queries further.

    Thanks,

    Manpreet Kaur
