Merge PowerPoint presentations - WebApp

  • Hi everyone!

    I want to create a very simple web application allowing users to merge PowerPoint Presentations in a few clicks.
    I don't have much experience with C#, asp.net & OpenXML - your help would be very much appreciated.

    This application would use Open XML SDK & Open XML PowerTools.
    I have installed Visual Studio, OpenXML SDK & PowerTools, managed to perform a PowerPoint merger via a cmdlet* but...
    How can I convert it into a web application (web page to begin with), with the following prototype?
    Any advice, idea or link to a pertinent tutorial welcomed!

        Prototype:
            1. Tick the checbkoxes associated to the presentations you want to merge**
            [ ] Presentation1
            [ ] Presentation2
            [ ] Presentation3

            2. Click on "MERGE SELECTED PRESENTATIONS"

            3. The merged presentation is downloaded

            **For the prototype, let's use blank presentations with 1 slide and 1 title:
            - Title1 for Presentation1
            - Title2 for Presentation2
            - Title3 for Presentation3

    * Links I have consulted, among others:

    Many thanks! (particular thanks to Eric White and his amazing work... that I still have to master!)

  • Hi,

    It always makes me very happy when my work is useful!  Thanks for letting me know!

    Have you built the c# examples that demonstrate Open-Xml-PowerTools?  The PresentationBuilder examples contain the prototype code that you will need for your web site.

    You may be interested in the following screen-cast:

    openxmldeveloper.org/.../screen-cast-building-an-asp-net-web-application-that-displays-docx-as-html.aspx

    While that screen-cast is about WordprocessingML, the parts of that example application that show how to upload, modify, then enabling downloading are the same as for PresentationML.

    Cheers, Eric

  • Thanks a lot Eric, I'll try that!
