Are you a C++ developer looking to add the ability to convert XPS to PPT files inside your C++ applications? You can do it in two simple steps with the help of Aspose.Total for C++. Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive suite of APIs that provides developers with the tools they need to create, manipulate, and convert documents, images, and other file formats.
The first step is to export XPS to PPTX by using Aspose.PDF for C++. Aspose.PDF for C++ is a powerful API that enables developers to create, edit, and convert PDF documents. It also provides the ability to export XPS to PPTX.
The second step is to convert PPTX to PPT by using Aspose.Slides for C++. Aspose.Slides for C++ is a powerful API that enables developers to create, edit, and convert presentations. It also provides the ability to convert PPTX to PPT.
By using Aspose.Total for C++, developers can easily add the ability to convert XPS to PPT files inside their C++ applications. It is a comprehensive suite of APIs that provides developers with the tools they need to create, manipulate, and convert documents, images, and other file formats.
C++ API to Export XPS to PPT
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 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 Ppt format prs->Save(u"output.ppt", Aspose::Slides::Export::SaveFormat::Ppt);
Change Password of XPS Document via C++
In the process of rendering XPS to PPT, 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 PPT File via C++
After converting XPS 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 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 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.
