Are you a C++ developer looking to add to integrate TEX to PPT conversion feature inside your C++ applications? You can do it in two simple steps. You can export TEX to PPTX by using Aspose.PDF for C++ . Secondly, by using Aspose.Slides for C++ , you can convert PPTX to PPT. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for C++ package.
C++ API to Export TEX to PPT
- Open TEX file using Document class reference
- Convert TEX to PPTX by using Save method function
- Load PPTX document by using Presentation class reference
- Save the document to PPT 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 TEX file with an instance of Document class auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"template.tex"); // save TEX 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 Ppt format prs->Save(u"output.ppt", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Ppt);
Change Password of TEX Document via C++
In the process of rendering TEX to PPT, you can open a password protected TEX and also change its password. In order to change the password of a TEX 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 TEX Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.tex", L"owner"); // change password of TEX Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Add Images From Web in PPT File via C++
After converting TEX to PPT, 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 PPT file
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPT file auto pres = System::MakeObject<Presentation>("output.ppt"); // 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.ppt", SaveFormat::Ppt);

What is TEX File Format?
A TEX file is a plain text file that contains the source code of a LaTeX document. LaTeX is a typesetting system used to create professional-looking documents. It is most commonly used to create papers for academic journals and to typeset books.TEX files are saved in the same directory as the LaTeX document and have a .tex file extension. They can be opened and edited with any text editor, but are typically viewed and compiled using a LaTeX editor, such as TeXnicCenter or Texmaker. When a TEX file is compiled, it is converted into a PDF or DVI file, which can be viewed with a PDF viewer, such as Adobe Reader, or a DVI viewer, such as Yap.Read More
What is PPT File Format?
The PowerPoint file format, commonly known as PPT (PowerPoint Presentation), is a proprietary file format developed by Microsoft for creating and delivering presentations. PPT files are the standard file format used by Microsoft PowerPoint, the popular presentation software included in the Microsoft Office suite.
PPT files contain a combination of text, images, graphics, animations, and multimedia elements that are arranged in slides. Each slide represents a separate screen or page within the presentation and can include various content such as titles, bullet points, charts, tables, and media files like images, audio, and video.
The format of a PPT file is binary, meaning it stores data in a binary format that is optimized for efficient storage and processing by the PowerPoint application. PPT files also support a range of features and formatting options, including slide transitions, animations, speaker notes, and embedded objects.
In addition to being editable within Microsoft PowerPoint, PPT files can also be viewed and presented using the PowerPoint software or compatible applications on different platforms, including Windows, macOS, and mobile devices. They can be shared via email, transferred through portable storage devices, or uploaded to cloud storage platforms for easy collaboration and distribution.
While Microsoft PowerPoint is the primary software used to create and modify PPT files, there are alternative presentation software applications that can open and work with PPT files, such as LibreOffice Impress and Google Slides. However, it’s important to note that there may be some compatibility limitations or variations in feature support when using non-Microsoft software.
