Currently, only the shape class has the width and height properties. It would be really beneficial for us to have the same properties also for the slide class.

 

Use case:

We need to insert content add-ins covering the entire slide. As content add-in allows us to specify only fixed dimensions in the manifest (RequestedWidth and RequestedHeight), our idea is to automatically resize newly inserted content add-ins to the dimensions of the parent slide. e.g.:

 

contentAddinShape.left = 0;
contentAddinShape.top = 0;
contentAddinShape.width = parentSlide.width;
contentAddinShape.height = parentSlide.height;

 


Alternative solution:
Allow setting RequestedWidth and RequestedHeight in relative units, so we could use something like:

 

<DefaultSettings>
  <RequestedWidth>100%</RequestedWidth>
  <RequestedHeight>100%</RequestedHeight>
</DefaultSettings>
