How to Get/Set Excel cell Fonts in C++ in OLE COM way RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to access Excel's Introp dll to create excel file in C++.

    All methods/properties of Font like Bold/Italic/Color/Size are accessible using InvokeHelper.

    Working Code:

    void Font::SetSize(const VARIANT& newValue)
    	static BYTE parms[] =
    	InvokeHelper(0x68, DISPATCH_PROPERTYPUT, VT_EMPTY, NULL, parms,

    But when trying to invoke Font Name. It throws an error of Member not found.

    Not Working

    VARIANT Font::GetName()
    	VARIANT result;
    	static BYTE parms[] =
    	InvokeHelper(0x66, DISPATCH_PROPERTYGET, VT_VARIANT, (void*)&result, NULL);
    	return result;

    Any pointer will help.

  • Hi upx,

    I am not familiar with C++, and I'm trying to involve some senior engineers into this issue and it will take some time.

    Your patience will be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry for any inconvenience and have a nice day!

    Best Regards,
