ReadObjects Property (IWorkbookSet)

SpreadsheetGear Namespace > IWorkbookSet Interface : ReadObjects Property
Gets or sets the property which specifies whether charts, pictures and drawing objects should be read when reading a workbook.
Property ReadObjects As System.Boolean
Dim instance As IWorkbookSet
Dim value As System.Boolean
instance.ReadObjects = value
value = instance.ReadObjects
System.bool ReadObjects {get; set;}
read-write property ReadObjects: System.Boolean; 
function get,set ReadObjects : System.boolean
__property System.bool get_ReadObjects();
__property void set_ReadObjects( 
   System.bool value
property System.bool ReadObjects {
   System.bool get();
   void set (    System.bool value);

Charts, pictures and drawing objects are read and written by default. Set this property to false to disable reading of charts, pictures and drawing objects when a workbook is read.

Note that setting ReadDrawingObjects to false will not disable reading of chart sheets.
