Create a presentation document by providing a file name (Open XML SDK)

This topic shows how to use the classes in the Open XML SDK 2.5 to create a presentation document programmatically.

To use the sample code in this topic, you must install the Open XML SDK 2.5. You must explicitly reference the following assemblies in your project:

  • WindowsBase

  • DocumentFormat.OpenXml (Installed by the Open XML SDK)

You must also use the following using directives or Imports statements to compile the code in this topic.

    using DocumentFormat.OpenXml;
    using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Drawing;
    using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging;
    using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Presentation;
    using P = DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Presentation;
    using D = DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Drawing;
    Imports DocumentFormat.OpenXml
    Imports DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging
    Imports DocumentFormat.OpenXML.Drawing 
    Imports DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Presentation
    Imports P = DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Presentation
    Imports D = DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Drawing

Create a Presentation

A presentation file, like all files defined by the Open XML standard, consists of a package file container. This is the file that users see in their file explorer; it usually has a .pptx extension. The package file is represented in the Open XML SDK 2.5 by the PresentationDocument class. The presentation document contains, among other parts, a presentation part. The presentation part, represented in the Open XML SDK 2.5 by the PresentationPart class, contains the basic PresentationML definition for the slide presentation. PresentationML is the markup language used for creating presentations. Each package can contain only one presentation part, and its root element must be <presentation>.

The API calls used to create a new presentation document package are relatively simple. The first step is to call the static Create(String,PresentationDocumentType) method of the PresentationDocument class, as shown here in the CreatePresentation procedure, which is the first part of the complete code sample presented later in the article. The CreatePresentation code calls the override of the Create method that takes as arguments the path to the new document and the type of presentation document to be created. The types of presentation documents available in that argument are defined by a PresentationDocumentType enumerated value.

Next, the code calls AddPresentationPart(), which creates and returns a PresentationPart. After the PresentationPart class instance is created, a new root element for the presentation is added by setting the Presentation property equal to the instance of the Presentation class returned from a call to the Presentation class constructor.

In order to create a complete, useable, and valid presentation, the code must also add a number of other parts to the presentation package. In the example code, this is taken care of by a call to a utility function named CreatePresentationsParts. That function then calls a number of other utility functions that, taken together, create all the presentation parts needed for a basic presentation, including slide, slide layout, slide master, and theme parts.

    public static void CreatePresentation(string filepath)
    {
        // Create a presentation at a specified file path. The presentation document type is pptx, by default.
        PresentationDocument presentationDoc = PresentationDocument.Create(filepath, PresentationDocumentType.Presentation);
        PresentationPart presentationPart = presentationDoc.AddPresentationPart();
        presentationPart.Presentation = new Presentation();

        CreatePresentationParts(presentationPart);

        // Close the presentation handle
        presentationDoc.Close();
    }

Using the Open XML SDK 2.5, you can create presentation structure and content by using strongly-typed classes that correspond to PresentationML elements. You can find these classes in the DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Presentation namespace. The following table lists the names of the classes that correspond to the presentation, slide, slide master, slide layout, and theme elements. The class that corresponds to the theme element is actually part of the DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Drawing namespace. Themes are common to all Open XML markup languages.

PresentationML Element Open XML SDK 2.5 Class
<presentation> Presentation
<sld> Slide
<sldMaster> SlideMaster
<sldLayout> SlideLayout
<theme> Theme

The PresentationML code that follows is the XML in the presentation part (in the file presentation.xml) for a simple presentation that contains two slides.

    <p:presentation xmlns:p="…" … >
      <p:sldMasterIdLst>
        <p:sldMasterId xmlns:rel="http://…/relationships" rel:id="rId1"/>
      </p:sldMasterIdLst>
      <p:notesMasterIdLst>
        <p:notesMasterId xmlns:rel="http://…/relationships" rel:id="rId4"/>
      </p:notesMasterIdLst>
      <p:handoutMasterIdLst>
        <p:handoutMasterId xmlns:rel="http://…/relationships" rel:id="rId5"/>
      </p:handoutMasterIdLst>
      <p:sldIdLst>
        <p:sldId id="267" xmlns:rel="http://…/relationships" rel:id="rId2"/>
        <p:sldId id="256" xmlns:rel="http://…/relationships" rel:id="rId3"/>
      </p:sldIdLst>
      <p:sldSz cx="9144000" cy="6858000"/>
      <p:notesSz cx="6858000" cy="9144000"/>
    </p:presentation>
