Hi,



I stumbled on a .NET library to write Excel XLL add-ins using C# or VB.NET.

It is called ExcelDNA, it is open source and free!

Hi Robert,



I thought following information might be interesting for visitors of yor forum:



We have recently released Excel4Net 2.0 - a RAD kit for creating Excel Add-Ins & UDFs using .NET languages (C#, VB.NET, etc).



With a support of debugging, monitoring, profiling, document generation, remote assistance for the users, this addin is now more than just a .NET wrapper for the Excel - it is a one stop shop tool for those, who use the Excel as a front-end for their tools: Quant Developers, Quants and Desk Developers. <- that was the main idea behind this project.



Key features:



*Easy to use

*Works with VBA and with in-cell functions

*Uses a simple deployment model

*Makes it easy to test and debug your spreadsheet and .NET code

*Have a built-in monitoring and performance profiling capabilities

*Supports users remotely

*Generates documentation for your code

*Runs on Excel 2002, 2003 and 2007, .NET 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5



Fully functional demo can be downloaded from here: http://excel4net.com/Download.aspx





"Getting started" documentation: http://excel4net.com/Documentation.aspx

Postby AlexesDad » Mon Jun 22, 2009 1:11 pm

Hi,

I thought it may be of interest to readers of this thread that the new version xlw v4 supports the creating

of xlls in C#, VB.NET , hybrid C++/C# as well as continuing support for C++.

You can view demonstrations of building xlls with xlw in the following clips:



Creating a C++ XLL with Visual Studio

Creating a C++ XLL with Code::Blocks & MinGW

Creating a C# XLL with Visual Studio

Creating a hybrid C++/C# XLL with Visual Studio (Professional)

Debugging a C# XLL with Visual C# Express







XLW can be downloaded from xlw-4.0.0b0



Let us know what you think and happy XLLing
