Create and Format Text

Create Text

You can create a Text object using an mlreportgen.ppt.Text constructor, specifying a character vector.

Also, you can create text by using a character vector with these kinds of PPT API objects:

  • Paragraph

  • ExternalLink

  • TableEntry

  • TextBox

  • ContentPlaceholder

  • TextBoxPlaceholder

For example:

import mlreportgen.ppt.*;
slides = Presentation('myPresentation.pptx');
slide1 = add(slides,'Title Slide');

contents = find(slide1,'Title');
titleText = replace(contents(1),'My Title');

For more information about creating and adding text, see Add and Replace Text.

Create a Subscript or Superscript

You can enable the Subscript or Superscript property for a Text object. Enabling these properties specifies that the text gets treated as a subscript or superscript when you add it to a Paragraph object. For example, you can set up a paragraph to display x2.

super = Text('2');
super.Superscript = true;

para = Paragraph('x');
append(para,super);

Format Text

To format a Text object, use format objects with a Text object Style property or use Text object properties. For example:

t = Text('green text');
t.Style = {Bold(true)};
t.FontColor = 'green';
