Form Controls within PPTX corrupting file


#41

Accepted :slight_smile:

Well in fact I have still the following issue:
I need to insert any kind of field where I can place tags so I can replace the content for the field each time the document gets processed.

In Word I already implemented successfully this feature using FormFields supported well by Aspose.Words.

So for PowerPoint I can:

  • user ActiveX controls
  • OR insert text areas (but can not define a name for this in PowerPoint - at least do not know how)
  • OR embed a Word in PowerPoint and update Word + preview image for my fields (already doing this solution in Excel using Aspose.Cells and Aspose.Words)

So help me make one solution work and all is fine…

PS: Already posted several posts about this on different topics. But hardly to find them with the new forum.

@rausch,

I suggest you to please visit Working with ActiveX controls documentation section and see if it suits your requirement. You have provision to include text fields as per your requirement as well.


#43

Good suggestion but working with ActiveX using Slides results in a corrupted PowerPoint file.
There is a bug report already like 1.5 years ago.

@rausch,

Can you please provide source code, source presentation and generated presentation that I may test using latest version on my end to reproduce the issue.


#45

Huch? This post contains source code, test files, etc. also the linked 2 bugs reported. So you should have all you need. Or the files, etc. are lost with the forum migration? If so, I collect the data again…

@rausch,

Please accept my apologies for inconvenience on your end. You are right that we have already logged two issues associated with thread based on your information. The said issues are blocked owing to missing support in Aspose.Slides. I had a feeling if you are having some newer issue with latest API. We will share feedback with you as soon as the issues will be fixed.
