Extract Shapes from a Group Shape


A group shape is a container for other shapes. This article shows you how to extract a shape from the group shape using Aspose.Slides Cloud API in your applications.

GetShape method has an optional subShape parameter that allows to specify path to the sub-shape to be retrieved. The sub-shape path is a string that contains shape index (e.g., “1”) or a path in case of more than one level of grouping (e.g. “1/shapes/1”). The returned object and shape data depend on the shape type.


MyFolder/MyPresentation.pptx document contains a single shape on the second slide. Extract the third shape from the group shape.

SDK Solutions


Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up development. An SDK takes care of a lot of low-level details of making requests and handling responses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project. Check out our GitHub repository for a complete list of Aspose.Slides Cloud SDKs along with working examples, to get you started in no time. Please check Available SDKs article to learn how to add an SDK to your project.
