Parse OFT File via C++
Not only you can convert your OFT to DOTX, 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 DOTX File Format Editing
You can also add document protection features in your app while exporting the document from OFT to DOTX. 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.Dotx");
