Hi


We have a web eLearning solution with a authoring tool inside. This tool is like a multimedia editor but our users commonly have their courses content in power point files (ppt, pptx), then we want our platform can import the assets of any power point file, create a page in our autohing tool for each page in the ppt file and put the right assets in each page.

Text and image is enogh for this moment, but in the future, we will need import shapes (triangle, square), wordArt and smartArt as a png image. Also we will need import audio, video and transcode them with zencoder and save them in AWS S3 (the image files too). About the format of the text, we want import font-type, size, align, if it is a bullet/numbered list, sangria, if it is bold, italic o underlined. The import of order of the layers (z-index) is important too. About the transition between pages and the animation of objects in a page maybe we will need identify if a object/page has animation or not, the type of animation in order to use our most similar type of animation in our system and when it is trigged.In our database we save the position, format, the z-index and some other properties of the assets.

The system use zendFramework and is hosted in heroku cloud platform.

I not have some ppt file example, but the most common files of our users have just text, images, backgrounds and animations.


Is it information enough? Please tell me if it isn’t.

Ok,


Does the java or .Net version supports these requirements?


Hi,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Well, you can get the position of the shapes and z-index using Aspose.Slides for .NET. Please see the following sample code for your reference which will return the position of all the shapes including Text Placeholders:

Presentation pres = new Presentation("C:\\Data\\Aspose.pptx");

foreach (ISlide slide in pres.Slides)

{

IShapeCollection shapes = slide.Shapes;

foreach (Shape shape in shapes)

{

Console.WriteLine("Shape X Coordinate: "+ shape.X);

Console.WriteLine("Shape Y Coordinate: " + shape.Y);

Console.WriteLine("Shape Z-Index: " + shape.ZOrderPosition);

}

}

In case you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact support.
