.NET Core Excel Save To PDF Completed

I am requesting the functionality be added for the export of excel data created by Gembox Spreadsheet to a PDF document. Currently this functionality was not included with the .Net Standard 2.0 version as of version 43.0.200.1049

Official response

Hi,

We have released support for .NET Core 3.0.
The new DLL is available in the latest versions of GemBox.Spreadsheet.

Hi,

Note that our current goal is to implement, replicate, the full capability of our rendering engine in the GemBox.Pdf component, of course without the WPF dependencies.
After this, we will integrate it into GemBox.Spreadsheet, GemBox.Document and GemBox.Presentation.
This is a longer-term commitment; this replacement is not a small task and will require quite some time investment.

Hi,

As previously mentioned, our rendering engine has a dependency on WPF.
However, Microsoft is planning to release .NET Core 3.0 with support for WPF.
This will enable users that use .NET Core 3 on Windows to utilize our existing rendering engine.

Nevertheless, note that we are still working on the rendering engine that will support all platforms (Windows, Linux, macOS, etc.), but again this is a complex task and it's hard to give a deadline.

Last as a side note I should point out that support for printing is very closely dependent on the platform, so printing support will most likely be supported only on Windows.

.Net Core is supposed to be released in Sept,2019.
Are you sure you will then export to pdf ? (I only need Windows support)

Hi,

Yes, we plan to have 3 versions of GemBox.Spreadsheet DLL:
- .NET Framework 3.5 - 4.8
- .NET Core 3.0
- .NET Standard 2.0

Both .NET Framework and .NET Core versions will have the rendering engine (support for saving to PDF, XPS, and image formats).
The .NET Standard versions will still not include the rendering engine until we finish with its re-factoring, re-implementation.

And when can we expect to get Spreadsheet Net Core 3.0 ?
Mario at GemBox
Hi,

Currently, I don't have an exact release date.
But nevertheless, it should be available within the month (most likely even within the week) after the .NET Core 3.0 has been officially released.

Hi,

To save an Excel file as PDF in ASP.NET Core 3.0 application using GemBox.Spreadsheet for .NET Core 3.0, you'll need to add framework reference for "Microsoft.WindowsDesktop.App".

For example:

<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk.Web"&gt;
<PropertyGroup>
<TargetFramework>netcoreapp3.0</TargetFramework>
</PropertyGroup>
<ItemGroup>
[FrameworkReference Include="Microsoft.WindowsDesktop.App" /]
</ItemGroup>
<ItemGroup>
<PackageReference Include="GemBox.Spreadsheet" Version="*" />
</ItemGroup>
</Project>

Hi,

Support for PDF in .NET Core on Windows has been implemented and is available in the latest versions of GemBox.Spreadsheet for .NET 3.0.
Because most of these requests were for .NET Core on Windows, we'll mark this request as "Completed".
