Animated Text

Adding Animation Effects to Paragraphs

We added the AddEffect() method to the Sequence and ISequence classes. This method allows you to add animation effects to a single paragraph. This sample code shows you how to add an animation effect to a single paragraph:

using (Presentation presentation = new Presentation(dataDir + "Presentation1.pptx"))
    // select paragraph to add effect
    IAutoShape autoShape = (IAutoShape)presentation.Slides[0].Shapes[0];
    IParagraph paragraph = autoShape.TextFrame.Paragraphs[0];

    // add Fly animation effect to selected paragraph
    IEffect effect = presentation.Slides[0].Timeline.MainSequence.AddEffect(paragraph, EffectType.Fly, EffectSubtype.Left, EffectTriggerType.OnClick);

    presentation.Save(dataDir + "AnimationEffectinParagraph.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);

Getting the Animation Effects in Paragraphs

You may decide to find out the animation effects added to a paragraph—for example, in one scenario, you want to get the animation effects in a paragraph because you plan to apply those effects to another paragraph or shape.

Aspose.Slides for .NET allows you to get all the animation effects applied to paragraphs contained in a text frame (shape). This sample code shows you how to get the animation effects in a paragraph:

using (Presentation pres = new Presentation("Test.pptx"))
	ISequence sequence = pres.Slides[0].Timeline.MainSequence;
	IAutoShape autoShape = (IAutoShape)pres.Slides[0].Shapes[1];

	foreach (IParagraph paragraph in autoShape.TextFrame.Paragraphs)
		IEffect[] effects = sequence.GetEffectsByParagraph(paragraph);

		if (effects.Length > 0)
			Console.WriteLine("Paragraph \"" + paragraph.Text + "\" has " + effects[0].Type + " effect.");
