Are you a C++ developer looking to add to integrate MD to XAML 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 XAML. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for C++ package.
C++ API to Export MD to XAML
- Open MD file using Document class reference
- Convert MD to PPTX by using Save method function
- Load PPTX document by using Presentation class reference
- Save the document to XAML format using
member function and set
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
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"template.md"); // 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 Xaml format prs->Save(u"output.xaml", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Xaml);
Change Password of MD Document via C++
In the process of rendering MD to XAML, 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"input.md", L"owner"); // change password of MD Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Add Images From Web in XAML File via C++
After converting MD to XAML, 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 XAML file
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a XAML file auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.xaml"); // 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.xaml", SaveFormat::Xaml);

What is MD File Format?
MD, or Markdown, is a lightweight markup language commonly used for formatting plain text documents. It was created by John Gruber in 2004 with the goal of allowing writers to focus on content without the distractions of complex formatting. Markdown uses simple and intuitive syntax that can be easily converted into HTML or other document formats.
In Markdown, you can apply formatting to text by using a combination of special characters and plain text. For example, you can use asterisks or underscores to create italic or bold text, hashtags to create headings, and hyphens or asterisks to create lists. Markdown also supports adding links, images, code snippets, and tables.
One of the advantages of Markdown is its readability in its raw form, as it closely resembles plain text. It can be written in any text editor and easily converted into HTML or other formats using various tools and converters. Markdown files have the .md or .markdown file extension.
Markdown is widely used for writing documentation, creating blog posts, and even in version control systems like Git. Its simplicity and versatility have made it a popular choice among writers, developers, and content creators for creating structured and well-formatted documents with minimal effort.
What is XAML File Format?
XAML (Extensible Application Markup Language) is an XML-based language developed by Microsoft for initializing objects and defining structured values. It is extensively used in Microsoft’s WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) technology for designing and building advanced user interfaces.
With XAML, it is possible to create a wide range of objects, including user interface elements such as buttons, text boxes, and media elements. Additionally, non-user interface objects such as brushes and geometries can also be defined using XAML.
Typically, XAML is compiled into a binary format that can be executed by a XAML processor. The XAML processor can be a standalone application like Microsoft’s Expression Blend tool or integrated into another application such as Microsoft’s Visual Studio IDE. When used in conjunction with WPF, XAML files are commonly compiled into a binary format known as BAML (Binary Application Markup Language). BAML is a more efficient format for storing and processing XAML-based user interface elements.
While XAML files are often compiled into binary formats, they can also be stored in a text-based format using XML (Extensible Markup Language). XML-based XAML files can be edited using any text editor due to the flexibility of XML. However, it is important to note that XML-based XAML files tend to be larger in size and may take longer to process compared to their binary counterparts.
