[Edit] Don't know why I posted this as an issue. Wanted to create a discussion topic - sorry about that [/edit]
I've found this project and wanted to use it for building Excel Add-In. Althouth I'm having a trouble with understanding all the things that are needed to create valid add-in. I've check the docs and the sample provided but still when I try to create my own
function I get no results.
My code is as follows:
using namespace xll;
ensure(o.xltype == xltypeNil);
catch (const std::exception& ex)
static Auto<OpenAfterX> xao_echomodule(xll_echomodule);
static AddIn12 xai_echo(
Function12(L">", L"?xll_echo", L"Test.Echo")
.Arg(XLL_LPXLOPER12, L"msg", L"is the argument.")
.FunctionHelp(L"Echoes the text"));
LPOPER12 WINAPI xll_echo(LPXLOPER12 msg)
static OPER12 o;
o = *msg;
It builds producing a dll but when I add this to Excel neither I see my 'echo' function nor I see Test category. I do not expect it to be working but still I was expecting to see something. When I import sample.dll I see new category XLL and some methods.
What am I missing here? Testing on Excel 2013. Maybe more working examples for the project would be beneficial for people like me who are having trouble starting.
