Excel comments

Recommended Posts

I use the following code:

$oExcel = _ExcelBookNew()
$oExcel.Activesheet.Range("A1").AddComment.Text("Test")

Adds the comment "Test" to cell A1.

What about method or property to change comment yellow box size to fit the content? If I put too long comment then it's not visible fully (only part)

I searched for "excel comment size set visual basic". "Visual Basic" returns example code that can easily be translated to AutoIt.

Now, very long text is fitted into one-line box. Is there an option to set max width and autofit of the yellow box?
