Description damiano biagioli 2007-10-26 01:40:02 UTC
hello . I was using the apache poi hssf library (the 3.0.2), in order to include
an image in an externally generetad image .  my code is omething like : 
 HSSFPicture picture = patriarch.createPicture(new HSSFClientAnchor(),
loadPictureFromFilesystem(picturePath, wb ));
   HSSFClientAnchor prefferedSize = picture.getPrefferedSize();

the problem is , under the image there is a table with some very large cells . 

So, the assumption made in 

that is ,
int cellwidth = 64;
int rowheight = 17;

is no more true . as a result, the image is distorted

HFFSPicture.getPreferredSize() calculates anchor for the default grid. If you
insert an image, add cells below it and some of the cells are large then the
image gets resized. It's a natural behavior, there is nothing to enhance. 

Can you post a code snippet?   

BTW, there is silly typo in the method signature. it should be
HFFSPicture.getPreferredSize (), not HFFSPicture.getPrefferedSize(). I'm going
to change it.
