Learn how to create pie and bar charts in a PowerPoint presentation using the Syncfusion PowerPoint Library. This video demonstrates the process of creating a pie chart for showcasing a car sales report and a bar chart for presenting purchase details and expenses.

The Syncfusion PowerPoint Library is a feature-rich .NET class library that allows developers to create, read, and write Microsoft PowerPoint files. It functions as a non-UI component, providing a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation instance that enables easy access and manipulation of presentations without relying on Microsoft Office COM libraries or Microsoft Office itself.

It offers extensive support for tasks such as creating PowerPoint presentations from scratch, seamlessly opening, modifying, and saving existing presentations, and converting PowerPoint presentations to PDF or individual PowerPoint slides to images. Additionally, it empowers users to create and customize various chart types, including over 80 options, with control over elements like chart titles, legends, axis titles, data labels, and line styles. You can also effortlessly convert charts within a slide into image formats, enhancing the versatility and functionality of PowerPoint-related tasks.

Essential Presentation, a part of the Syncfusion library, allows you to add, rearrange, duplicate, format, and delete shapes within a PowerPoint slide. It supports the creation, modification, and formatting of 134 SmartArt diagrams, making it easy to visually represent data.

You can copy and paste slides within the same or different PowerPoint presentations, merging them with source and destination formatting. This library also handles encrypted PowerPoint presentations and allows you to mark a PowerPoint file as final to prevent further editing.
