Visio addin - language issue
« on: April 11, 2019, 06:57:47 AM »
Hi Experts,

I have developed a Visio addin on .Net and Shapesheet sections. The programming language is C##. The addin works perfectly on an English language machine. However I have having issues with say a French or Dutch language machine. We keep getting exception errors. Are there anything specific that we need to take care to make the addin language agnostic....any tips and best practices are most welcome. Need advise urgently. Thank you in advance.

When your code accesses the various cells within the shapesheet using .Cells or .CellsU or .Formula or FormulaU then you have to use the .xxxU version with English and the .xxx version (without the U) with other languages.
Can you show us an example of a line of code that causes an exception?
