ActiveX Controls in PPT

Hello. I’m evaluating the possibility of using your product for our project.

Our PowerPoint template has ActiveX controls included within it, which we need to modify their properties dynamically at runtime. Does Aspose allow for this? If not, is this planned in the near future?

Also, what version of the PowerPoint format are your PPT files saved as? PowerPoint 97? 2000? PowerPoint XP? PowerPoint 2003? Can we specify the format at save?


Dear Tom,

Thanks for your question.
I’m sorry but we are not planning to support possibility to change properties of ActiveX controls. Each control saved in ppt file in own format. We are not use OLE automation and because of that supporting even only one type of controls will be almost the same task as writing new component.
