With Edraw Office Viewer Component, it is easy to embed MS PowerPoint program in any project which supports the ActiveX Control such as asp.net, vb.net, c#, c++, delphi, php, etc. There is no worry of the format compatible problem.

The PowerPoint Viewer Component have wrapped the basic PowerPoint automation code in a behavior to make it easy to use. You simply drop it onto the form or html page then add the script. All are easy. In the install package, you can find lots of sample projects written in different development languages.

The following codes are from a simple vb.net project.

End Sub

End Sub

End Sub

The PowerPoint Component also includes some methods to play the slide show.

boolean SlideExportSlideToImage([in] long Index, [in] BSTR FilePath, [in] BSTR FilterName, [in, optional] VARIANT Width, [in, optional] VARIANT Height);

Index: The index of the slide.
FilePath: The name of the file to be exported and saved to disk. You can include a full path; if you don't, Microsoft PowerPoint creates a file in the current folder.
FilterName: The graphics format in which you want to export slides. The specified graphics format must have an export filter registered in the Windows registry. You can specify either the registered extension or the registered filter name. Microsoft Office PowerPoint will first search for a matching extension in the registry. If no extension that matches the specified string is found, PowerPoint will look for a filter name that matches.
Width: The width in pixels of an exported slide.
Height: The height in pixels of an exported slide.

The following java script shows how to export slide into jpg file.

function ExportSlide_Example ()
edoffice.SlideExportSlideToImage(1, "d:\1.jpg", "JPG");

Automating PowerPoint

Programmers can automate the Microsoft PowerPoint applications by using VBA, and when combined with VBScript, they have a very powerful tool at their disposal. The component provides two methods which return the Application and Presentation interface of the opened MS PowerPoint Presentation. The developers can add the following Key Code in the DocumentOpened event of the component.

For Example: KEY CODE in VB

Dim appPPT As PowerPoint.Application
Set appPPT = EDOffice1.GetApplication()
Dim oPre As PowerPoint.Presentation
Set oPre = EDOffice1.ActiveDocument()

Then the developers can do the PowerPoint automation without any difference.
