How to Convert MSG to PNG in C# .Net Framework

Today’s post is really going to save your bacon. If you have been struggling with the conversion between MSG format and PNG, then you just hit the jackpot. Put away all those thoughts of parsing, rendering and rasterizing, because you won’t need any of them. Instead, we will be getting this done in a single function call using an API.

First we install our API client, like so:

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

Then we call our conversion function, as you see here:

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Model;namespace Example{public class ConvertDocumentMsgToPngExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new ConvertDocumentApi();var inputFile = new System.IO.Stream(); // System.IO.Stream | Input file to perform the operation on.try{// Convert Email MSG file to PNG image arrayMsgToPngResult result = apiInstance.ConvertDocumentMsgToPng(inputFile);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling ConvertDocumentApi.ConvertDocumentMsgToPng: " + e.Message );}}}}

Finally, you’re done! Yup, it’s just that simple.
