How to position a table directly below some text

Hi,

I am evaluating the product Aspose.Slides.
I wish to place a table below some text called “LAST LINE”. How do you achieve this?

In the program below I use the setting:
ashp2.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AutofitType = TextAutofitType.Shape;
in the second slide but it does not work but does work in the first slide, i.e. by setting:
ashp1.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AutofitType = TextAutofitType.Shape;

The odd thing is that in PowerPoint under Format Shape/Text Box/Autofit the Resize shape to it text is selected but the Textframe is not resized to fit the text. Am I doing something wrong here as to me something seems inconsistent. I am also fairly new to this library.

However
Do you have any ideas? Thank you very much.

There are 2 functions FormatSlide() and SetPortionFont():

public static void FormatSlide()
{
using (Presentation pres = new Presentation())
{
//Instantiate SlideCollection class
ISlideCollection slds = pres.Slides;
ILayoutSlide layoutTitleAndObject = null;

for (int i = 0; i < pres.LayoutSlides.Count; i++)
{
layoutTitleAndObject = pres.LayoutSlides[i];
if (layoutTitleAndObject.LayoutType == SlideLayoutType.TitleAndObject)
{
slds[slds.Count - 1].LayoutSlide = layoutTitleAndObject;

pres.Slides.AddEmptySlide(layoutTitleAndObject);
}
}

// Add a slide
pres.Slides.AddEmptySlide(layoutTitleAndObject);

ISlide sld = pres.Slides[0];
IAutoShape ashp1 = (IAutoShape)sld.Shapes[0];
SetPortionFont(ashp1.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0], “Calibri”, NullableBool.False, 28, FillType.Solid, Color.Black);
ashp1.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0].Text = “FIRST SLIDE”;
ashp1.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AnchoringType = TextAnchorType.Top;
ashp1.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].ParagraphFormat.Alignment = TextAlignment.Left;
ashp1.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AutofitType = TextAutofitType.Shape;

sld = pres.Slides[1];
ashp1 = (IAutoShape)sld.Shapes[0];
ashp1 = (IAutoShape)sld.Shapes[0];
SetPortionFont(ashp1.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0], “Calibri”, NullableBool.False, 28, FillType.Solid, Color.Black);
ashp1.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0].Text = “SECOND SLIDE”;
ashp1.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AnchoringType = TextAnchorType.Top;
ashp1.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].ParagraphFormat.Alignment = TextAlignment.Left;
ashp1.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AutofitType = TextAutofitType.Normal;

// Main body of slide handling
IAutoShape ashp2 = (IAutoShape)sld.Shapes[1];
ashp2 = (IAutoShape)sld.Shapes[1];
SetPortionFont(ashp2.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0], “Calibri”, NullableBool.False, 24, FillType.Solid, Color.Black);
ashp2.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].ParagraphFormat.Bullet.Type = BulletType.None;
ashp2.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AnchoringType = TextAnchorType.Top;
ashp2.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].ParagraphFormat.Alignment = TextAlignment.Left;
// Slide text
ashp2.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0].Text = “SOME SUB TITLE” + “\n”;
ashp2.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0].Text += “SOME TEXT BELOW SUB TITLE” + “\n”;
ashp2.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0].Text += “LAST LINE”;
ashp2.TextFrame.TextFrameFormat.AutofitType = TextAutofitType.Shape;

double[] dblCols = { 50, 50, 50 };
double[] dblRows = { 50, 30, 30, 30, 30 };

//Add table shape to slide
ITable tbl = sld.Shapes.AddTable(100, 50, dblCols, dblRows);

//Set border format for each cell
foreach (IRow row in tbl.Rows)
foreach (ICell cell in row)
{
cell.BorderTop.FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Gradient;
cell.BorderTop.FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.Red;
cell.BorderTop.Width = 2;

cell.BorderBottom.FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Solid;
cell.BorderBottom.FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.Red;
cell.BorderBottom.Width = 2;

cell.BorderLeft.FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Pattern;
cell.BorderLeft.FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.Red;
cell.BorderLeft.Width = 2;

cell.BorderRight.FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Solid;
cell.BorderRight.FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.Red;
cell.BorderRight.Width = 2;
}

//Merge cells 1 & 2 of row 1
tbl.MergeCells(tbl[0, 0], tbl[1, 0], false);

//Add text to the merged cell
tbl[0, 0].TextFrame.Text = “Merged Cells”;
pres.Save(“C:\dev\TEST.pptx”, Aspose.Slides.Export.SaveFormat.Pptx);

}
}


public static void SetPortionFont(IPortion port, string sfont, NullableBool fontbold, float fontheight, FillType fill, Color fontcolor)
{
//Set the Font for the Portion
port.PortionFormat.LatinFont = new FontData(sfont);

//Set Bold property of the Font
port.PortionFormat.FontBold = fontbold;

//Set the Height of the Font
port.PortionFormat.FontHeight = fontheight;

//Set the color of the Font
port.PortionFormat.FillFormat.FillType = fill;
port.PortionFormat.FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = fontcolor;
}

Hi Anil,


Thank you for your interest in Aspose.Slides.

I have observed your comments and like to request you to please share with us a sample presentation to explain your expected output. Please also narrow down the code while keeping focus over your requirements as I have not been able to understand your requirements completely. I will be able to proceed further once the requested information is shared by you.

Best Regards,

Hi Adnan,


Thanks for your email. I managed to fix my issue. It was easy to fix…it was a coding error from my side.
