C++ API to Convert WORD to PPT

Export WORD to PPT within your C++ applications without using Microsoft Word® or PowerPoint

 

Aspose.Total for C++ consists of powerful file automation APIs that allows to automate WORD to PPT conversion while using two of it’s APIs. Load your WORD using Aspose.Words for C++ and convert it to HTML, then load the HTML via PowerPoint manipulation C++ API Aspose.Slides for C++ to create a new presentation, and save it as PPT.

WORD to PPT Conversion on C++

  1. Open WORD file using Document class reference
  2. Convert WORD to HTML by using Save member function
  3. Initialize a new Presentation object
  4. Add an AutoShape in your slide, and add AddTextFrame in it
  5. Load the HTML content and write it in your Presentation file
  6. Save the document to PPT format using Save method and set Ppt 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 WORD file with an instance of Document
Document document = new Document("template.docx");
System::SharedPtr<Document> doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.docx");
// save the document in HTML file format
doc->Save(u"HtmlOutput.HTML");
// load the desired the presentation
SharedPtr<Presentation> pres = MakeObject<Presentation>();
// access first slide
SharedPtr<ISlide> sld = pres->get_Slides()->idx_get(0);
// add an AutoShape of Rectangle type
SharedPtr<IAutoShape>  ashp = sld->get_Shapes()->AddAutoShape(ShapeType::Rectangle, 10, 10, 700, 500);
// reset default fill color
ashp->get_FillFormat()->set_FillType(FillType::NoFill);
// add TextFrame to the Rectangle
ashp->AddTextFrame(u" ");
// access the text frame
SharedPtr<ITextFrame>  txtFrame = ashp->get_TextFrame();
// get Paragraphs collection
SharedPtr<Aspose::Slides::IParagraphCollection>ParaCollection = txtFrame->get_Paragraphs();
// clear all paragraphs in added text frame
ParaCollection->Clear();
// load the HTML file using stream reader
SharedPtr<System::IO::StreamReader>  tr = MakeObject<System::IO::StreamReader>(HtmlOutput.HTML);
// add text from HTML stream reader in text frame
ParaCollection->AddFromHtml(tr->ReadToEnd());
// save presentation as Ppt
pres->Save(output.ppt, Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Ppt);                  

Load Password Protected WORD Document via C++

Apart from document conversion, Aspose.Words for C++ API allows tons of document manipulation features for C++ developers. In case your Microsoft Word WORD file format is password protected, you can still open it using the API. In order to load the encrypted document, you can use a special constructor overload, which accepts a LoadOptions object. This object contains the Password property, which specifies the password string.

// when loading password protected document, the password is passed to the document's constructor using a LoadOptions object.
auto options = MakeObject<LoadOptions>(u"docPassword");
// load the document from the local file system by filename:
SharedPtr<Document> doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"Encrypted.docx", options);

Add Comments in PPT Document via C++

While saving WORD as PPT, you can also use Aspose.Slides for C++ to add further features in your PPT document. For instance, you can add comments in your presentation. The presentation slide comment are associated with a particular author. The Presentation class holds the collection of authors in ICommentAuthorCollection that are responsible for adding slide comments. For each author, there is a collection of comments in ICommentCollection.

// instantiate Presentation class
SharedPtr<Presentation>pres = MakeObject<Presentation>();
// access first slide
SharedPtr<ILayoutSlide>layout = pres->get_LayoutSlides()->idx_get(0);
// add empty slide
pres->get_Slides()->AddEmptySlide(layout);
// adding Author
SharedPtr<ICommentAuthor> author = pres->get_CommentAuthors()->AddAuthor(u"John Doe", u"MF");
// set position of comments
System::Drawing::PointF point = System::Drawing::PointF(0.2f, 0.2f);
// add slide comment for an author on slide 1
author->get_Comments()->AddComment(u"Hello John, this is a slide comment", pres->get_Slides()->idx_get(1), point, DateTime::get_Now());
// access ISlide 1
SharedPtr<ISlide> slide = pres->get_Slides()->idx_get(0);
// save presentation as Ppt
pres->Save(output.ppt, Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Ppt);
