How to set table cell color using Aspose.Slides (C# .NET)

I can’t seem to find the code to set the color for a selected cell in a table using c# .net. I’ve created an example template that I open, it has a table in one of the slides which I can access and update. However I can’t seem to find the correct command to set an RGB color for a given cell. I’ve tried the following:

using Aspose.Slides;

//opening the presentation
string presLocation = “test presentation.pptx”;
Aspose.Slides.Presentation pres = new Aspose.Slides.Presentation(presLocation);

//selecting the slide
sld = pres.Slides[2];

//selecting the table
Aspose.Slides.Table table = (Aspose.Slides.Table)sld.FindShapeByAltText(“table”);

//updating text for col 0, row 1 particular cell in the table
table[0, 1].TextFrame.Text = “updated 1”;

//changing the text color for a col 1 row 1 cell to red
Portion portion = (Portion)table[1, 1].TextFrame.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0];
portion.PortionFormat.FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Solid;
portion.PortionFormat.FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.Red;

//attempting to set col 4 row 1 to red
table[4, 1].FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Solid;
table[4, 1].FillFormat.SolidFillColor.ColorType = ColorType.RGB;
table[4, 1].FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.FromArgb(250,0,0);

//save presentation
pres.Save(“test presentation aspose.pptx”, Aspose.Slides.Export.SaveFormat.Pptx);

I’ve looked through the forum and with some of the other languages there seems to be methods that I don’t have access to in C# (for example to set the ForColor). Perhaps I need to add some further refrences, etc… or I’m looking in the wrong place. Thanks for your help.


Please try using following sample code on your end.

public static void TestTableFill()
    // Instantiate Presentation class object
    Presentation presentation = new Presentation();

    // Access first slide
    ISlide islide = presentation.Slides[0];

    // Define columns with widths and rows with heights
    double[] dblCols = { 150, 150, 150, 150 };
    double[] dblRows = { 100, 100, 100, 100, 90 };

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

    // Add image to first table cell
    tbl[0, 0].FillFormat.FillType = FillType.Solid;
    tbl[0, 0].FillFormat.SolidFillColor.Color = Color.Red;
    // Save PPTX to Disk
    presentation.Save( "C:\\Aspose Data\\Color_Fill_TableCell_out.pptx", Aspose.Slides.Export.SaveFormat.Pptx);
