Listed in the version 2016.0.03.300466 Issues Fixed doc
Currently spreadsheetGetColumnCount()/spreadsheet.getColumnCount() require the sheet name/number parameter.

It should be optional. It should default to the currently active sheet (i.e. the sheet specified via .setActiveSheet()/.setActiveSheetNumber()).


  ss = spreadsheetNew("mySheet");
  ss.addRows(["one,two,three","four,five,six","seven,eight,nine"], 1, 1);

Actual result: throws "The getColumnCount method was not found."

Expected result: displays mySheet's column count

(then, of course, the doc should be updated to indicate that parameter is optional)

Hmm.. that error message is even wrong. It says "The getColumnCount method was not found." Well, obviously .getColumnCount() is implemented. :) that error should probably say "The sheet name or number is required." (or something like that). BUT, no worries b/c this ER here would make that parameter optional - which would resolve the error message since it would no longer occur :) I guess it just reveals an underlying bug in how error messages are handled for member functions. It appears the default behavior is to say 'member function X was not found'. Which.. is wrong. Thanks!, -Aaron
