Hi

I have a code to chenge some properties in Excel (using Delphi XE2). Now I can protect the Sheet with the code
ExcelApp.ActiveWorkBook.ActiveSheet.Protect('myPassword')

Open in new window

. What I Need to know: how can I control properties like "DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True , AllowFiltering:=True" ... I think, the protect-method has more Parameters than the Password. But where can I find a description of this Parameters?

Thanks, Peter

Hi Peter,

Sorry, I am not Familiar with ExcelApp, however, as with all object instances in delphi.....

When typing in the method, for example, the  ".Protect("   portion, stop and it should display the parameters it takes, and whether there are any overloaded methods you can use that have addiitional parameters.

like this:
ExcelApp := CreateOleObject('Excel.Application');
...
ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Protect(Password:='myPassword', DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True);

Open in new window

LOL!  Of course it did. I think you should have learned how to get the parameters yourself rather than someone providing the code outright to you - because that is how you learnfor future references
