Shape.addTextFrame throws Exception


#1

Hello,

I am using Aspose.PowerPoint for Java version 1.4.2.0 and just began using the method Shape.addTextFrame. I noticed that it throws the generic exception object Exception.

I don't mean to be a "know-it-all", but shouldn't this really be some subclass of PptException or PptEditException?

Since it throws Exception, my code has to catch it. Today, I had a bug in my code that caused a NullPointerException to be thrown and the Exception catch phrase caught it making it was harder to debug.

Just an idle comment,

It has been replaced with PptEditException in 1.4.3.

Hello,

I began using 1.4.3 and Shape.addTextFrame doesn't throw Exception as expected.

However, there are three other methods in TextFrame that still do:

  1. setFlipH
  2. setFlipV
  3. setRotation

Of course, this is not serious.

Thank you,
Randy Stegbauer.
