Render MHTML to POTM within C++ Applications

Convert MHTML to POTM within your C++ Applications without using Microsoft® PowerPoint

 

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

C++ API to Export MHTML to POTM

  1. Open MHTML file using Document class reference
  2. Convert MHTML to PPTX by using Save method function
  3. Load PPTX document by using Presentation class reference
  4. Save the document to POTM format using Save member function and set Potm 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 MHTML file with an instance of Document class
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"template.mhtml");
// save MHTML 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 Potm format
prs->Save(u"output.potm", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Potm);  

Change Password of MHTML Document via C++

In the process of rendering MHTML to POTM, 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
doc->Save(L"output.Doc");

Add Images From Web in POTM File via C++

After converting MHTML to POTM, 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 POTM file

// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a POTM file
auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.potm");
// 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.potm", SaveFormat::Potm);
