Is there a way to add/edit pictures?


Does anybody knows if there is a way to manage (add and edit/replace) pictures in XlsIo on Xamarin / Android?

Hi Michael,


Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Adding pictures in Xamarin :

Pictures can be added in XlsIO and the below code snippet illustrates adding pictures in XlsIO for Xamarin platform.

Code Snippet:

Assembly assembly = typeof(App).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;

Stream fileStream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("XlsIO.Templates.untitled.png");

sheet.Pictures.AddPicture(1, 2, fileStream);

Replacing pictures in Xamarin :

Currently, picture can’t be replaced in XlsIO but you can do it manually by deleting the picture and adding the new picture.

Please let us know if you have any concerns.

Thanks, I didn't see this one.

Now I've my next issue ... the XLS image format is PNG. I had to add it to a PDF, but your component accepts only JPG.
Any suggestions ?

Hi Michael,

Thank you for updating us.

There is no Excel to Pdf conversion support in Xamarin. Are you trying to add image directly to a Pdf document and facing this issue? Please clarify us to assist you with a prompt solution.

Hi Dillibabu,
My customer is using XLS files as templates for generated reports. The format for the report is PDF.
Basically Excel added with some data gives a report.

So sometimes we had to get images from the Excel files and add them to the report.
That's the point were we were had to convert the images from Excel (PNG) to JPEG, as your PDF component accepts only JPEG.

Hi Michael,

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Our Xamarin PDF has support for JPEG formats alone and have no plans of supporting other formats as of now. We would request you to use our Direct-Trac Support system to log a feature request by using the below link to login on Direct trac.

Please let us know if you need any clarification.
