Render print areas

Introduction

Spreadsheet document allows to set a print area if you want to print a specific section on a worksheet. There can be the case when you want to render only the print area of the worksheet using GroupDocs.Viewer Cloud.

GroupDocs.Viewer Cloud provides an option to render sections of the worksheet(s) defined as the “print area”. It renders each print area in a worksheet as a separate page. The following code samples show how to render only the print areas from worksheets.

API Usage

There are steps that usage of GroupDocs.Viewer Cloud consists of:

  1. Upload input document into cloud storage
  2. Render document or get document info
  3. Download rendered document from storage

Steps 1 and 3 are storage operations, please refer to this File API documentation for usage details.

Swagger UI lets you call this REST API directly from the browser.

SDKs

The API is completely independent of your operating system, database system or development language. We provide and support API SDKs in many development languages in order to make it even easier to integrate. You can see our available SDKs list here.
