Get Shapes from Presentation Slide using Apache POI and Aspose.Slides

Aspose.Slides - Get Shapes from Presentation Slide

Aspose.Slides for Java supports adding different kinds of shapes to the slides. Using Aspose.Slides for Java, developers can not only create simple lines, but some fancy lines can also be drawn on the slides. These shapes can be obtained using Slide.getShapes() in IShapeCollection class.

ISlide slide =  pres.getSlides().get_Item(0);

//Accessing source slide shape collection
IShapeCollection sourceShapes = slide.getShapes();

//Iterating through all shapes inside the slide
for (int i = 0; i < sourceShapes.size(); i++)
	System.out.println(sourceShapes.get_Item(i).getWidth() +  " x " +

Apache POI SL - HSLF XSLF - Get Shapes from Presentation Slide

XSLFSlide.getShapes can return all shapes available in the slide of presentation using Apache POI SL - HSLF XSLF.

XSLFSlide[] slide = ppt.getSlides();
for (int i = 0; i < slide.length; i++)
	XSLFShape[] sh = slide[i].getShapes();
	for (int j = 0; j < sh.length; j++)
		// name of the shape
		String name = sh[j].getShapeName();
		// shapes's anchor which defines the position of this shape in
		// the slide
		java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D anchor = sh[j].getAnchor();
		if (sh[j] instanceof XSLFConnectorShape)
			XSLFConnectorShape line = (XSLFConnectorShape) sh[j];
			System.out.println("Connector Shape.");
			// work with Line
		else if (sh[j] instanceof XSLFTextShape)
			XSLFTextShape shape = (XSLFTextShape) sh[j];
			System.out.println("Text Shape.");
			// work with a shape that can hold text
		else if (sh[j] instanceof XSLFPictureShape)
			XSLFPictureShape shape = (XSLFPictureShape) sh[j];
			System.out.println("Picture Shape.");
			// work with Picture
