Public API Changes

Another option has been added for setting external workbook path

Method setExternalWorkbook(String workbookPath, boolean updateChartData) has been added. 

Parameter updateChartData defines whether excel workbook will be loaded or not. If value is false only workbook path will be updated.  Chart data won’t be loaded and updated from the target workbook. It’s useful when target workbook doesn’t exist yet or is not available. If value is true chart data will be updated from the target workbook as regular method setExternalWorkbook() does.

Presentation pres = new Presentation();
      IChart chart = pres.getSlides().get_Item(0).getShapes().addChart(ChartType.Pie, 50, 50, 400, 600, true);
      IChartData chartData = chart.getChartData();
      ((ChartData)chartData).setExternalWorkbook("http://path/doesnt/exists", false);
} finally {
      if (pres != null) pres.dispose();

New addEffect method has been added to Sequence class and ISequence interface

addEffect(IParagraph paragraph, int effectType, int subtype, int triggerType) method has been added to ISequence interface and Sequence class.

It allows to add new animation effect for single paragraph.

Usage example:

Presentation presentation = new Presentation(path + "input.pptx");
    // select paragraph to add effect
    IAutoShape autoShape = (IAutoShape)presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0).getShapes().get_Item(0);
    IParagraph paragraph = autoShape.getTextFrame().getParagraphs().get_Item(0);
	// add Fly animation effect to selected paragraph
    IEffect effect = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0).getTimeline().getMainSequence().
    addEffect(paragraph, EffectType.Fly, EffectSubtype.Left, EffectTriggerType.OnClick);
} finally {
    if (presentation != null) presentation.dispose();
