How to make a windows form visible 100% of the time in an excel 2003 addin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I need to create an excel 2003 addin in order to be able to read\write comments from\to the cells of any spreadsheet I open in my excel 2003 application. I need to be able to handle those comments using several UI controls.

    I found documentation stating that ActionsPane is only available for document-level customizations, and CustomTaskPanes are only available for excel 2007 so looks like the remaining option for me is to create a Windows Form but, after several hours or research I can't handle to keep the form visible 100% of the time so I can move from cell to cell in the active sheet and reflect the information in my form at the same time.

    Please advice,
