Render MD to POTX within C++ Applications

Convert MD to POTX within your C++ Applications without using Microsoft® PowerPoint


Are you a C++ developer looking to add to integrate MD to POTX conversion feature inside your C++ applications? You can do it in two simple steps. You can export MD to PPTX by using Aspose.PDF for C++ . Secondly, by using Aspose.Slides for C++ , you can convert PPTX to POTX. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for C++ package.

C++ API to Export MD to POTX

  1. Open MD file using Document class reference
  2. Convert MD to PPTX by using Save method function
  3. Load PPTX document by using Presentation class reference
  4. Save the document to POTX format using Save member function and set Potx as SaveFormat

Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs

Install from command line as nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with Install-Package Aspose.Total.Cpp.

Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .

// load MD file with an instance of Document class
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"");
// save MD as PPTX format 
doc->Save(u"PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat::Pptx);
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file
SharedPtr<Presentation> prs = MakeObject<Presentation>(u"PptxOutput.pptx");
// save the presentation as Potx format
prs->Save(u"output.potx", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Potx);  

Change Password of MD Document via C++

In the process of rendering MD to POTX, you can open a password protected MD and also change its password. In order to change the password of a MD file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.

// load an existing MD Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"", L"owner");
// change password of MD Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document

Add Images From Web in POTX File via C++

After converting MD to POTX, you can also add images from web to your output document. Aspose.Slides for C++ supports operations with images in these popular formats: JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, and others. You can add one or several images on your computer onto a slide in a presentation. This sample code in C++ shows you how to add an image to a POTX file

// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a POTX file
auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.potx");
// get slide
auto slide = pres->get_Slides()->idx_get(0);
// initialize Web Client    
auto webClient = System::MakeObject<WebClient>();
// get image data
auto imageData = webClient->DownloadData(System::MakeObject<Uri>(u"[REPLACE WITH URL]"));
// add image
auto image = pres->get_Images()->AddImage(imageData);
// add picture frame
slide->get_Shapes()->AddPictureFrame(ShapeType::Rectangle, 10.0f, 10.0f, 100.0f, 100.0f, image);
// save updated file
pres->Save(u"updated.potx", SaveFormat::Potx);

What is MD File Format?

Markdown (MD) is a lightweight markup language that was first developed in 2004 by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz. It is a simple and easy-to-use syntax for formatting text that can be converted to HTML, PDF, and many other formats. MD is widely used by developers, bloggers, and writers as a tool to create structured documents, web content, and documentation. One of the key advantages of MD is its simplicity. Unlike more complex markup languages like HTML, MD uses a simple syntax to format text. This makes it easy for writers and developers to learn and use, and it can be used to quickly create clean and organized documents. Another advantage of MD is its portability. MD files are plain text files, which means they can be opened and edited using any text editor. This makes it easy to share and collaborate on MD documents across different platforms and devices. MD files can also be easily converted to other formats using various tools and libraries. This makes it easy to publish content in multiple formats, such as HTML, PDF, or Microsoft Word.

What is POTX File Format?

A POTX file is a PowerPoint Open XML Template file. It is a ZIP compressed XML file used by Microsoft PowerPoint to store slide designs. The POTX file format is used to save slide masters and layouts.POTX files can be opened by Microsoft PowerPoint and other presentation software that supports the PowerPoint Open XML format. They can also be opened by text editors such as Microsoft Word and Notepad++.Microsoft PowerPoint templates are pre-designed slide layouts that you can use to create presentations. Templates can contain slide masters, layouts, theme colors, theme fonts, theme effects, background styles, and slide design elements. You can use templates to create both new presentations and to modify existing presentations. When you open a template, it is copied to your hard drive and opened as a new, untitled presentation. The template file is not changed. You can save the new presentation as either a PowerPoint presentation (PPTX) or a PowerPoint template (POTX).
