i am trying to create a slideshow application using C# and WPF...

The problem I am having though is that i need to convert excel, pdf and word documents into a jpeg format in order to use them as slides in a slideshow...

basically, i want the users of the slideshow app to place their files into a folder. When the app is run it will convert the files into a jpeg format and the app will be able to load the converted files into the slideshow playlist.

Please help me find a solution... any suggestions will be most appreciated

Ok. So you started/tried anything or have no clue ?

1 solution

Your best bet is to buy some sort of library that does this. You need to either write code that opens word and takes a screenshot, or you need to write/buy a rendering engine that can read a Word file, an Excel file, etc and render it to a bitmap. Not likely to happen in a hurry.
