Create a Standalone Application from a Presentation Program

If you have the MATLAB® Compiler™ product, you can package your MATLAB API for PowerPoint® (PPT API) programs into standalone applications. Then you can share the standalone application with others who do not have a licensed copy of MATLAB.

To enable execution of standalone PPT API programs on a system that does not have a licensed copy of MATLAB, you must include makePPTCompilable() before the first line of PPT API code. For example:

makePPTCompilable();

import mlreportgen.ppt.*

ppt = Presentation("myPresentation");
open(ppt);
slide = add(ppt,"Title Slide");
replace(slide,"Title","My Title");
close(ppt);

Note

To enable execution of standalone DOM and Report API programs, use makeDOMCompilable() instead of makePPTCompilable().

To create a standalone application from a PPT API program, use the compiler.build.standaloneApplication (MATLAB Compiler) function or the Application Compiler (MATLAB Compiler) app. See Create Standalone Application from MATLAB (MATLAB Compiler).
