                                    Can you tell me how to convert a DevExpress.Spreadsheet Shape object into an image?

                                  At the moment, we do not provide an API that allows you to convert a shape to a bitmap. It's only possible to convert regular document images and charts to bitmaps.
                                  I've forwarded this ticket to our developers. We will think how to improve our API in this regard.

                                Additional information:

                                We have added the following method to the Shape interface:

                                OfficeImage ExportToImage();

                                Use this method to export a drawing object (chart, picture, or shape) to an image. This method preserves all display settings applied to the drawing object (for instance, crop, outline, and effects).
                                The example below shows how to create a text box and export it to an image.

                                Shape textBox = worksheet.Shapes.AddTextBox(50, 120, 500, 250, "Spreadsheet"); textBox.Fill.SetSolidFill(Color.PowderBlue); textBox.ExportToImage().NativeImage.Save("MyTextBox.png");
