Example

This example demonstrates how to use SpreadsheetCloudAPI service to access located cloud files.

  • To access the files that belong to an application, first initialize the SpreadsheetSDK.dll using the API Key generated for your application. For this purpose, call the Initialize method with your API Key as a parameter.

  • To create a new file and store it on the server, call the Document.Create method.

    To open an existing file stored on the server, call the Document.Load method.

  • To access a document's worksheet, use the Worksheet class and its members.

Note

It is important to terminate the session at the end of your code. For this purpose, call the Document.Close method each time you finish work with the document.

            // SDK initialization
            SpreadsheetSDK.Initialize("SPECIFY_YOUR_API_KEY_HERE");

            List<Worksheet> worksheets = doc.Worksheets;
            Worksheet worksheet = worksheets[0];

            // Access cells
            Cell cell1 = worksheet[0, 0];
            Cell cell2 = worksheet[0, 1];
            Cell cell3 = worksheet[1, 0];

            // Specify formula
            cell3.Formula = "=A1*B1";

            // Set and get cell values
            cell1.Value = 5;
            cell2.Value = 10;

            var value = cell3.Value;
            Console.WriteLine("Value is {0}", value);

            // Close the document and save changes
