Add slide to presentation

Description

example

slideObj = add(presentation,slideLayout) adds a slide to the presentation using the specified slide layout name. If the specified layout occurs in multiple slide masters, the PPT API uses the first occurrence of the layout that it finds in the template.

slideObj = add(presentation,slideLayout,slideMaster) uses the specified slide layout in the specified slide master. Use the slideMaster argument when the specified layout occurs in multiple slide masters.

slideObj = add(presentation,slideLayout,otherSlide) adds the slide immediately before the slide specified in the otherSlide argument, using the specified slide layout in the first slide master in the presentation.

example

slideObj = add(presentation,slideLayout,slideMaster,otherSlide) adds the slide immediately before the otherSlide slide, using the specified slide layout in the specified slide master.

slideObj = add(presentation,slideLayout,index) adds the slide at the index position specified by index, using the specified slide layout in the first slide master in the presentation.

example

slideObj = add(presentation,slideLayout,slideMaster,index) adds the slide at the index position specified by index, using the specified slide layout in the specified slide master.

Import the PPT package so that you do not have to use long, fully qualified names for the PPT API classes.

import mlreportgen.ppt.*

Create and open a presentation named myPresentation.pptx.

ppt = Presentation('myPresentation.pptx');
open(ppt);

Add the first slide and specify the slide layout, but not the slide master or location.

contentSlide = add(ppt,'Title and Content');
replace(contentSlide,'Title','This is the Title of the Slide Content');

Add another slide using the Office Theme slide master. Insert it before the slide represented by contentSlide.

titleSlide = add(ppt,'Title Slide','Office Theme',contentSlide);
replace(titleSlide,'Title','Presentation Title');

Add a blank slide using the Office Theme slide master. Make the new slide the second slide in the presentation.

blankSlide = add(ppt,'Blank','Office Theme',2);

Close and view the presentation.
