Both methods follow these steps:
  • Create a presentation.
  • Add a blank slide.
  • Add a text box.
  • Set some text.
  • Write the presentation.

        private void AddTextBox()
            //Create a presentation
            PowerPoint.Presentation pres = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application

            //Get the blank slide layout
            PowerPoint.CustomLayout layout = pres.SlideMaster.

            //Add a blank slide
            PowerPoint.Slide sld = pres.Slides.AddSlide(1, layout);

            //Add a text
            PowerPoint.Shape shp =sld.Shapes.AddTextbox
            (Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTextOrientation.msoTextOrientationHorizontal,150, 100, 400, 100);

            //Set a text
            PowerPoint.TextRange txtRange = shp.TextFrame.TextRange;
            txtRange.Text = "Text added dynamically";
            txtRange.Font.Name = "Arial";
            txtRange.Font.Bold = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue;
            txtRange.Font.Size = 32;

            //Write the output to disk

        static void AddTextBox()
            //Create a presentation
            Presentation pres = new Presentation();

            //Blank slide is added by default, when you create
            //presentation from default constructor
            //So, we don't need to add any blank slide
            Slide sld = pres.GetSlideByPosition(1);

            //Get the font index for Arial 
            //It is always 0 if you create presentation from
            //default constructor
            int arialFontIndex = 0;

            //Add a textbox
            //To add it, we will first add a rectangle
            Shape shp = sld.Shapes.AddRectangle(1200, 800, 3200, 370);

            //Hide its line
            shp.LineFormat.ShowLines = false;

            //Then add a textframe inside it
            TextFrame tf = shp.AddTextFrame("");

            //Set a text
            tf.Text = "Text added dynamically";
            Portion port = tf.Paragraphs[0].Portions[0];
            port.FontIndex = arialFontIndex;
            port.FontBold = true;
            port.FontHeight = 32;

            //Write the output to disk
