    I’m trying to automate some SpreadJS v10 interaction. It seems like the best way to do it would be using JS. I’ve searched the forum and found a few topics that sound like what I need to do:

    However, I haven’t been able to actually create or retrieve the instance of the workbook/sheets from the page. findControl just doesn’t throw an error or return a value. I’m looking at the minified JS also when running the code, so it’s hard to debug.

    My question is, what element should I be supplying to the findControl function?

    You can use the findControl method as shown here:

    var spread =new GC.Spread.Sheets.findControl(document.getElementById(‘ss’));

    where ‘ss’ is the id of Spread div.

    I hope it helps.

    Thanks, that worked! It turns out I was missing the ‘new’ keyword. Some other examples I saw didn’t have it there.
