Adding Slide to Presentation

OpenXML Presentation

In below functionality by default a slide is added to presentation.Here we are adding new slide at index 2 having some text in it.

class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            InsertNewSlide("Sample.pptx", 1, "My new slide");
        }
        // Insert a slide into the specified presentation.
        public static void InsertNewSlide(string presentationFile, int position, string slideTitle)
        {
            // Open the source document as read/write. 
            using (PresentationDocument presentationDocument = PresentationDocument.Open(presentationFile, true))
            {
                // Pass the source document and the position and title of the slide to be inserted to the next method.
                InsertNewSlide(presentationDocument, position, slideTitle);
            }
        }

        // Insert the specified slide into the presentation at the specified position.
        public static void InsertNewSlide(PresentationDocument presentationDocument, int position, string slideTitle)
        {

            if (presentationDocument == null)

            // Verify that the presentation is not empty.
            if (presentationPart == null)

Aspose.Slides

Each PowerPoint presentation file contains one Main Master slide and other Normal slides. It means that a presentation file contains at least one or more slides. It is important to know that presentation files without slides are not supported by Aspose.Slides for .NET. Each slide has specific position and a unique Id. The slide Id can range from 0 to 255 for master slides and from 256 to 65535 for normal slides.

Aspose.Slides for .NET allows developers to add empty slides to the presentations using the AddEmptySlide method exposed by Presentation object.To add an empty slide in the presentation, please follow the steps below:
  • Create an instance of Presentation class
  • Call the AddEmptySlide method exposed by Presentation object
  • Do some work with the newly added empty slide
  • Add another slide and insert text on it.
  • Finally, write the PPT file using the Write method exposed by Presentation object

class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //Instantiate PresentationEx class that represents the PPT file
            Presentation pres = new Presentation();

            //Blank slide is added by default, when you create
            //presentation from default constructor
            //Adding an empty slide to the presentation and getting the reference of
            //that empty slide
            Slide slide = pres.AddEmptySlide();

            slide = pres.GetSlideByPosition(2);

            //Get the font index for Arial 
            //It is always 0 if you create presentation from
            //default constructor
            int arialFontIndex = 0;

            //Add a textbox
            //To add it, we will first add a rectangle
            Shape shp = slide.Shapes.AddRectangle(1200, 800, 3200, 370);

            //Hide its line
            shp.LineFormat.ShowLines = false;

            //Then add a textframe inside it
            TextFrame tf = shp.AddTextFrame("");

            //Set a text
            tf.Text = "Text added dynamically";
            Portion port = tf.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0];
            port.FontIndex = arialFontIndex;
            port.FontBold = true;
            port.FontHeight = 32;

            //Write the output to disk
            pres.Write("outAspose.ppt");

        }
    }
