Presentation Header and Footer

Aspose.Slides for Java provides the feature for managing headers and footers inside presentation slides. These are in fact managed on presentation master level.

Notes of some specific slide could be removed as shown in example below:

// Load Presentation
Presentation pres = new Presentation("headerTest.pptx");
try {
    // Setting Footer
    pres.getHeaderFooterManager().setAllFootersText("My Footer text");
    pres.getHeaderFooterManager().setAllFootersVisibility(true);

    // Access and Update Header
    IMasterNotesSlide masterNotesSlide = pres.getMasterNotesSlideManager().getMasterNotesSlide();
    if (null != masterNotesSlide)
    {
        updateHeaderFooterText(masterNotesSlide);
    }

    // Save presentation
    pres.save("HeaderFooterJava.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
} finally {
    if (pres != null) pres.dispose();
}
// Method to set Header/Footer Text
public static void updateHeaderFooterText(IBaseSlide master)
{
    foreach (IShape shape in master.Shapes)
    {
        if (shape.Placeholder != null)
        {
            if (shape.Placeholder.Type == PlaceholderType.Header)
            {
                ((IAutoShape)shape).TextFrame.Text = "HI there new header";
            }
        }
    }
}

Code Snippet provided in below Example.

Presentation pres = new Presentation("presentation.pptx");
try {
    // Change Header and Footer settings for notes master and all notes slides
    IMasterNotesSlide masterNotesSlide = pres.getMasterNotesSlideManager().getMasterNotesSlide();
    if (masterNotesSlide != null)
    {
        IMasterNotesSlideHeaderFooterManager headerFooterManager = masterNotesSlide.getHeaderFooterManager();

        headerFooterManager.setHeaderAndChildHeadersVisibility(true); // make the master notes slide and all child Footer placeholders visible
        headerFooterManager.setFooterAndChildFootersVisibility(true); // make the master notes slide and all child Header placeholders visible
        headerFooterManager.setSlideNumberAndChildSlideNumbersVisibility(true); // make the master notes slide and all child SlideNumber placeholders visible
        headerFooterManager.setDateTimeAndChildDateTimesVisibility(true); // make the master notes slide and all child Date and time placeholders visible

        headerFooterManager.setHeaderAndChildHeadersText("Header text"); // set text to master notes slide and all child Header placeholders
        headerFooterManager.setFooterAndChildFootersText("Footer text"); // set text to master notes slide and all child Footer placeholders
        headerFooterManager.setDateTimeAndChildDateTimesText("Date and time text"); // set text to master notes slide and all child Date and time placeholders
    }

    // Change Header and Footer settings for first notes slide only
    INotesSlide notesSlide = pres.getSlides().get_Item(0).getNotesSlideManager().getNotesSlide();
    if (notesSlide != null)
    {
        INotesSlideHeaderFooterManager headerFooterManager = notesSlide.getHeaderFooterManager();
        if (!headerFooterManager.isHeaderVisible())
            headerFooterManager.setHeaderVisibility(true); // make this notes slide Header placeholder visible

        if (!headerFooterManager.isFooterVisible())
            headerFooterManager.setFooterVisibility(true); // make this notes slide Footer placeholder visible

        if (!headerFooterManager.isSlideNumberVisible())
            headerFooterManager.setSlideNumberVisibility(true); // make this notes slide SlideNumber placeholder visible

        if (!headerFooterManager.isDateTimeVisible())
            headerFooterManager.setDateTimeVisibility(true); // make this notes slide Date-time placeholder visible

        headerFooterManager.setHeaderText("New header text"); // set text to notes slide Header placeholder
        headerFooterManager.setFooterText("New footer text"); // set text to notes slide Footer placeholder
        headerFooterManager.setDateTimeText("New date and time text"); // set text to notes slide Date-time placeholder
    }
    pres.save("testresult.pptx",SaveFormat.Pptx);
} finally {
    if (pres != null) pres.dispose();
