Feature Release

XLL Plus is a toolkit that helps C/C++ programmers construct Excel add-ins. The class library wraps the Microsoft Excel SDK with simple, intuitive C++ classes and Wizards create all the code for you. The user needs very little knowledge of Excel or the SDK. Add-ins produced with XLL Plus contain no Visual Basic code; they are authored entirely in C and C++.

The following editions are available:

Updates in V7.0.6

  • Complex Handle Types - Object handles can now be complex types and can include namespaces and templates. It is no longer necessary to create a typedef for this kind of object.
  • Shared Handles - Object handles can now be shared across separate XLLs, so one XLL can create and publish an object and other XLLs can consume it.
  • Selective Publishing of Add-in Functions - Developers can decide which of the add-ins contained in an XLL will be made available to users. The list can be controlled at run-time or at development-time.
  • New Event Handlers for Excel 2010+ - Two new COM event handlers have been added to the library, to handle the WorkbookAfterSave and AfterCalculate events, introduced in Excel 2010.
