Demonstrates the use of numeric handles to represent objects in Excel
This add-in contains the code described in the User Guide topic Using object handles.
Numeric handles (as implemented in the
extension) consist of the object's address in memory.
This is the least verbose form of handle of the three styles available,
but it can be hard for the user to debug, since the addresses are large
To edit the functions in this add-in, you need to load the extension file
See Loading an extension file
You should also make sure that none of the following extension files is loaded, since the various types of handles are mutually exclusive.
Each sample project is located in a sub-directory of the Samples directory of the XLL+ installation. To use the sample project, open the solution file NumericHandleDemo.sln or the project file NumericHandleDemo.vcproj.
You can enable debugging under Excel by using the Setup Debugging command in the XLL+ ToolWindow.
