installing excellibrary in visual studio

Posted 09 May 2012 - 07:50 AM

Please I downloaded excellibrary (ExcelLibrary.dll) and want to use it in visual studio 2010. How do I use it.
Though I follow a tutorial online that tells how to add it as reference in from the com library but yet the intellisense seems not to see it. what should I do? Thanks.

if you added it already you need to add line something like
using ExcelLibrary;


at top of your class file

Or whatever the name is. It should pop in IntelliSense. Even without 'using' you should have access to ExcelLibrary namespace via
ExcelLibrary.Something

No I have not installed it, only downloaded it. what is the step by step process to get it working in visual studio 2010?

i said "added" not "installed"

Project -> Add Reference... -> Browse. The file will get copied to your output directory.

Then you access it as i shown earleir.

No offense, but we are not your unpaid private tutors. We are not here to hold your hand through the baby steps of learning to program. You have to state some responsibility for your own education. You have to at least make SOME effort on your own.
The site you downloaded this from has instructions.

Before you try downloading something you don't understand, to put into a program that you obviously lack the coding experience to use - you should start with learning straight C# with no add-ons.

There are three routes people seem to take when learning programming.
  • Just start trying to create programs
  • Start taking apart other programs and try to figure out the language by reverse engineering
  • Follow a guided learning course (school or self-teaching books)


For the life of me I can't figure out why people try 1 & 2.
Sure, 35 years ago the only way I could learn BASIC as a kid was to type programs from a book into a TRS-80 model 1 or Commodore VIC-20, then figure out the commands and syntax by watching the results as the program ran. There simply wasn't any courses for a kid back then.

But now, you can't help but to trip over "Learn {coding language} in 3 weeks" type books and the entire internet is at your disposal for tutorials.

I strongly suggest taking the guided learning approach. Those book authors go in a certain order for a reason: They know what they're doing and they know the best order to learn the materials.

Where do I start?


You start by learning a coding language FIRST.
Learn to plan before you type.
THEN you start designing software with a purpose.

Otherwise, you can just jump to the resources here:
Some of the tutorials below are for C# or Java not C, C++, VB.NET [...]. But the conceptual stuff of classes, object oriented design, events etc. are not language specific and should give you enough guidance in theory of program development for you to be able to look-up specific code example in your chosen coding language.
