Setting fill colors on ShapeEx is broken since 2.8.0

Hi Aspose Support Team,

We updated to Aspose Slides 2.8.0 because of various thumbnail problems, which have been solved now. Thx for that fast fixing. However, now we cannot set fill color on shapes anymore. With 2.7.0 this worked. Because of the thumbnail problems in 2.7.0 we can not go back to version 2.7.0.

Following snippet ( actually copied from your developers guide ) shows the problem:

//Instantiate PrseetationEx class that represents the PPTX
PresentationEx pres = new PresentationEx();

//Get the first slide
SlideEx sld = pres.getSlides().get(0);

//Add autoshape of rectangle type
int idx = sld.getShapes().addAutoShape(ShapeTypeEx.RECTANGLE, 50, 150, 75, 150);
ShapeEx shp = sld.getShapes().get(idx);

//Set the fill type to Solid

//Set the color of the rectangle

The shape is still coloured in standard blue.

I hope this can be fixed soon, as this is a real project blocker for us.

Hi Hassan,

Any idea on when we can get a fix for this? The trouble is, with 2.7.0 we problem with thumbnails and 2.8.0 we can not set shape background colors. We need to workaround those problems untill mid of march somehow. So if a 2.8.2 would fix those problems, this would be very helpful for us.
