C++ API to Export OFT to DOT

Transform OFT to DOT within C++ application without requiring Microsoft Word or Outlook

 

Are you are a C++ developer looking to add email conversion features inside your applications? Using Aspose.Email for C++ you can convert OFT file format to HTML. After that, by using Aspose.Words for C++ API, you can export HTML to DOT. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for C++ package.

C++ API to Convert OFT to DOT

  1. Open OFT file using MailMessage class reference
  2. Convert OFT to HTML by using Save member function
  3. Load HTML by using Document class
  4. Save the document to DOT format using Save method and set Dot as SaveFormat

Get Started with C++ File Format 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 the OFT file to be converted
System::SharedPtr<MailMessage> msg = MailMessage::Load(u"sourceFile.oft");
// save OFT as a HTML 
msg->Save(u"HtmlOutput.html", SaveOptions::get_DefaultHtml());  
// load HTML with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"HtmlOutput.html");
// call save method while passing Dot as save format
doc->Save(u"convertedFile.Dot");

Parse OFT File via C++

Not only you can convert your OFT to DOT, but you can read, manipulate, and parse OFT document. You can get subject, address, body, recipients information of the email by using MapiMessage class of Aspose.Email for C++ API. For example, you can check for a specific sender email for the conversion by using get_SenderEmailAddress() property.

// create an instance of MapiMessage from file
System::SharedPtr<MapiMessage> msg = MapiMessage::FromFile(dataDir + L"message.oft");
// get subject
System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Subject:") + msg->get_Subject());
// get from address
System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"From:") + msg->get_SenderEmailAddress());
// get body
System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Body") + msg->get_Body());
// get recipients information
System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Recipient: ") + msg->get_Recipients());

C++ API to Restrict DOT File Format Editing

You can also add document protection features in your app while exporting the document from OFT to DOT. Adding protection to your document is a simple process, as all you need to do is apply the protection method to your document. You can set protection type to ReadOnly to restrict the user to edit the document.

// create a new document and protect it with a password.
auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>();
// apply Document Protection.
doc->Protect(ProtectionType::ReadOnly, u"password");
// save the document.
doc->Save(u"DocumentProtection.PasswordProtection.Dot");

DOT What is DOT File Format?

Files with .DOT extension are template files created by Microsoft Word to have pre-formatted settings for generation of further DOC or DOCX files. A template file is created in order to have specific user settings that should be applied to subsequent files created from these. These settings include page margins, borders, headers, footers, and other page settings. Such templates are used in official documents such as company letterheads and standardized forms. The DOT file format is specific to Microsoft Word 2003 and earlier, but is supported by higher versions as well. Microsoft Word by default opens every new document based on normal.dot file. If modified, all the new files created will result in same settings as from the template file. In Microsoft Word 2007, the DOT file format has been replaced with Office OpenXML based DOTX file format.
