This article exaplains the important new features included in the latest version of  Aspose.Cells for Java.  Aspose.Cells for Java APIs have exposed an overloaded version of SheetRender.toImage method that can accept an instance of java.awt.Graphics2D along with usual parameters to render the Worksheet in Graphics2D context. This feature is helpful in scenario where you wish to get high (scalable) print quality by redirecting the Graphics2D context to PostScript printer and create a PDF from the PostScript. Aspose.Cells for Java now provides the PivotTable.getCellByDisplayName method to obtain the Cell reference by PivotField display name. This method is useful in scenarios where application requirement is to format the PivotField header in the PivotTable. It has exposed the Geometry.getShapeAdjustValues method that can be used to make changes to the adjustment points within the shapes. Please note, Microsoft Excel application displays the adjustments points as yellow diamond nodes while allowing to change the arc for rounded rectangle, point location for triangle, top width of a trapezoid and shape of head & tail for arrows. Aspose.Cells APIs provide the means to apply Consolidation Function to DataFields (or value fields) of the PivotTable. In Microsoft Excel, you can right click the value field and then select Value Field Settings… option and then select the tab Summarize Values By. From there, you can select any Consolidation Function of your choice like Sum, Count, Average, Max, Min, Product, Distinct Count etc. The most notable  enhancements in this release includes, Exposed SaveOptions.MergeAreas property to handle scenarios if a spreadsheet has too many individual cells with validation applied, there are chances that the resultant spreadsheet may get corrupted. One possible solution is to merge the cells with identical validation rules or you can now use the SaveOptions.MergeAreas property to direct the API to auto merge the CellAreas before save operation,  Improved the HTML & PDF rendering for alignment and layout, improved overall memory consumption and many more.  This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below

  • Add "Distinct Count" Constant to ConsolidationFunction class in Pivot Tables
  • Mismatch in alignment settings after saving Excel file to HTML file format
  • AttachedFilesDirectory and AttachedFilesUrlPrefix are not working properly
  • PivotField.IsRepeatItemLabels not working in the Pivot Table
  • Merge & Center option got selected even it is having a single cell
