This weeks webcast will show how to use the Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) libraries and templates to develop for Microsoft Excel with Visual APL and C# working together seamlessly to produce a single Solution.
Controlling Excel using VSTO
With the Visual Studio Tools for Office Visual Studio Add-in, you can control all aspects of any and all applications in the Microsoft Office Suite of products.
This webcast will highlight the use of VSTO to control and design an Excel workbook.
Using VSTO, your development experience in Visual Studio will be just as though you are developing your application in Excel.
Using the VSTO Excel templates, you have full access to all features of Excel as you develop, just as though you were actually in Excel as you were creating your applicaton!
Visual APL is a 100% managed code .Net language, with full integration with Visual Studio. A large part of this integration is the ability to seamlessly cross language bounderies when programming your Solution in Visual Studio. This webcast will show how to use the VSTO templates for C# as the front end of your VSTO application, with Visual APL powering the back end calculations of the workbook operations!
Using the VSTO templates, you can visually design your workbook with Visual Studio designer interfaces, just as you would design a Form for a Windows project using the Visual Studio Forms Designer.
