How to convert ODP to PDF in C# .Net Framework

If file format conversion is the very last thing that you would like to be dealing with today, then you came to the right place. This little post is going to get you set up with a high fidelity conversion method in but a few minutes of your precious time. Let’s dive straight into the process.

First of all, we will install our API client package via NuGet’s package manager console, like so:

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

Next we will instance our API using an API key (free from Cloudmersive’s website), convert our file into a stream, and call our conversion function using our API instance.

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 ConvertDocumentOdpToPdfExample{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 ODP Presentation to PDFbyte[] result = apiInstance.ConvertDocumentOdpToPdf(inputFile);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling ConvertDocumentApi.ConvertDocumentOdpToPdf: " + e.Message );}}}}

And shortly thereafter, you will get back your result as a byte array. Easy.
