C++ API to Export MHTML to PCL

Render MHTML to PCL within C++ applications without requiring any third party application


Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert MHTML to PCL in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert MHTML file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to PCL.

C++ API to Render MHTML to PCL

  1. Open MHTML file using Document class reference
  2. Convert MHTML to DOC by using Save member function
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class reference of Aspose.Words API
  4. Save the document to PCL format using Save member function

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 MHTML file with an instance of Document class reference
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.mhtml");
// save MHTML as a DOC 
doc->Save(u"DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat::Doc); 
// load DOC with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc");
// save document as Pcl

Change Password of MHTML Document via C++

In the process of rendering MHTML to PCL, you can open a password protected MHTML and also change its password. In order to change the password of a MHTML 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 MHTML Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.mhtml", L"owner");
// change password of MHTML Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document

Restrict PCL File Editing via C++

You can also restrict PCL file editing using using Aspose.Words for C++ API. Sometimes you may need to limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. API enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. The following code example demonstrates how to restrict editing in a document so only editing in form fields is possible.

// load Doc with an instance of Document
auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>("input.doc");
// document protection only works when document protection is turned and only editing in form fields is allowed.
doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password");
// save the protected document.
