Is this API still under active development? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The Apps for Office 2013/Office.js API has been out for 2 years, and we still don't have basic functionality like creating new sheets, formatting cells outside of tables, querying what cells are currently selected, changing height/width of a cell, firing events when a user changes sheets, etc.

    I would love to see more transparency around new feature development, support on other platforms (is this API going to work with Office 2016 for Mac? iOS? Legacy versions of Office?), and the overall roadmap. Is this information available anywhere? Is anyone actually working on the stuff marked 'Under Review' here?

    Our company has made a reasonably large bet on this API, and if these issues aren't going to be addressed, we need to know in order to start looking at other solutions.

    Yes, JavaScript API for office is update all the time. You could refer the link below for more information about Apps for Office API and schema references.

    Currently, they are not supported, if they are features you want to include in future versions of Office Javascript API, please submit a feedback to Office Development Platform Uservoice.
