Asynchronous support for thread locking GBS operations - Community / GemBox.Spreadsheet Feature Request - GemBox Support Center

Asynchronous support for thread locking GBS operations Completed

With large files (> 30 MB) many very useful operations in GBS cause processor utilisation to go to 100% and lock the thread in which the operation is running because the operations are synchronous. Please could GBS implement asynchronous / threaded / spawned subprocess versions of the following operations? There would need also to be a callback mechanism when the async task completes, plus a mechanism for reporting progress percentage.

 

ExcelFile.Load

ExcelFile.Save

ExportToDataGridView

ImportFromDataGridView

ExtractToDataTable

InsertDataTable

CreateDataTable

 

Thanks,

Rob

For very large Excel files (close to the Excel limit of 1 million rows) the Save operation will take a while and the Progression Callback would be a very useful feature. I hope it makes it to the development stage. In absence of that I suppose I could run some benchmarks and approximate the save times based on how many rows were passed to GBS and suggest the customer how long the Save activity might take.

Thanks,
