Syncfusion Essential PowerPoint is a .NET PowerPoint library used to create, read, and edit PowerPoint documents. Using this library, you can start creating a PowerPoint document in ASP.NET MVC.

Steps to create a PowerPoint file programmatically:

  1. Create a new ASP.NET MVC application project. Create new ASP.NET application in visual studio
  2. Select the MVC template to create the project. Create MVC Project
  3. Install the Syncfusion.Presentation.ASPNet.MVC5 NuGet package as reference to your .NET Framework application from NuGet.org. Install NuGets
  4. A default controller with name HomeController.cs gets added on creation of ASP.NET MVC project. Include the following namespace in that HomeController.cs file.


using Syncfusion.Presentation;


Imports Syncfusion.Presentation
  1. A default action method named Index will be present in HomeController.cs. Right click on this action method and select Go To View where you will be directed to its associated view page Index.cshtml.
  2. Add a new button in the Index.cshtml as shown below.
    @{Html.BeginForm("CreateDocument", "Home", FormMethod.Get);
                <input type="submit" value="Create Document" style="width:150px;height:27px" />
  1. Add a new action method CreateDocument in HomeController.cs and include the below code snippet to create a PowerPoint file and download it.


//Creates a PowerPoint instance
IPresentation pptxDoc = Presentation.Create();
//Adds a slide to the PowerPoint presentation
ISlide slide = pptxDoc.Slides.Add(SlideLayoutType.Blank);
//Add a textbox to the slide
IShape shape = slide.AddTextBox(10, 10, 500, 100);
//Add a text to the textbox.
shape.TextBody.AddParagraph("Hello World!!!");
//Save the PowerPoint Presentation
pptxDoc.Save("Sample.pptx", FormatType.Pptx, HttpContext.ApplicationInstance.Response);
//Close the PowerPoint presentation


'Creates a PowerPoint instance
Dim pptxDoc As IPresentation = Presentation.Create()
