Working with Special Slide Shapes in a PowerPoint Presentation


Aspose.Slides Cloud API allows you to read, add, modify and delete special (master, layout or notes) slide shapes in a PowerPoint Presentation. A set of methods identical to those that work with ordinary slides can be used to do that.

API Information

API Type Description Swagger Link
/slides/{name}/slides/{slideIndex}/{slideType}/shapes GET Read slide shapes information GetSpecialSlideShapes
/slides/{name}/slides/{slideIndex}/{slideType}/shapes/{shapeIndex} GET Read slide shape information GetSpecialSlideShape
/slides/{name}/slides/{slideIndex}/{slideType}/shapes POST Add a new shape to the slide CreateSpecialSlideShape
/slides/{name}/slides/{slideIndex}/{slideType}/shapes/{shapeIndex} PUT Update a shape in the slide UpdateSpecialSlideShape
/slides/{name}/slides/{slideIndex}/{slideType}/shapes DELETE Delete a shape from the slide DeleteSpecialSlideShape

The following examples demonstrate manipulating master slide shapes. You can access layout or notes slide shapes the same way, just change the value of slideType parameter accordingly.

Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up the 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.
