C++ API to Export XPS to PPS

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

Change Password of XPS Document via C++

In the process of rendering XPS to PPS, you can open a password protected XPS and also change its password. In order to change the password of a XPS 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 XPS Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.xps", L"owner");
// change password of XPS Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document
doc->Save(L"output.Doc");

Add Images From Web in PPS File via C++

After converting XPS to PPS, 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 PPS file

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

What is XPS File Format?

XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.

The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.

XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.

To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.

What is PPS File Format?

The PPS file format is an extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations specifically designed for slideshow purposes. It stands for “PowerPoint Slide Show” and is closely related to the PPT (PowerPoint Presentation) format. PPS files contain a collection of slides, each with its own content, layout, and formatting.

Unlike PPT files, which open in the PowerPoint editor, PPS files are intended to be opened directly in slideshow mode. When a PPS file is opened, it launches the presentation in full-screen mode, immediately displaying the slides in the order they were created. This allows for a seamless and uninterrupted presentation experience without the need for manual navigation.

PPS files are commonly used for sharing presentations with others who only need to view the slides rather than edit them. By saving a presentation as a PPS file, you ensure that recipients can open and view the presentation as intended without accidentally modifying the content. This makes it a convenient format for distributing slideshows for meetings, conferences, or self-running presentations.

The PPS format retains all the visual elements, animations, transitions, and multimedia content included in the original PowerPoint presentation. It provides a convenient way to deliver polished and professional-looking slideshows that maintain their intended design and effects.

To open and view PPS files, recipients typically need a compatible software application such as Microsoft PowerPoint, PowerPoint Viewer, or other presentation software capable of reading PPS files. These applications allow users to enjoy the full presentation experience without the need for authoring or editing capabilities.
