SDK - PowerShow Session Settings File Format

The PowerShow Session contains the session configuration parameters. Look at the tutorials for more information on the PowerShow Session. The session parameters can be provided through PowerShow Session Settings file. The file format is described below.

The session settings file is divided into sections. A section is named within square brackets - []. The section named Session contains general information about the session. It contains the following attributes:

[Session]
ShowSlideThumbnails=1 or 0 (1 for "show", 0 for "don't show")
ShowNextSlideThumbnails=1 or 0 (1 for "show", 0 for "don't show")
ShowFullScreen=1 or 0 (1 for "show Session Controller Full Screen")
SlideShowFollowsSlideDesign=1 or 0 (1 to keep the slide show in sync with the slide sorter view. Click on any slide on the slide sorter view to make the slide show go to that slide)
SlideDesignFollowsSlideShow=1 or 0 (1 to keep the slide design views in sync with the slide show)
SettingsCount=<number of settings>

All other sections contain information about each setting. The number of setting sections should be same as the value for SettingsCount. Each setting section has the following attributes:

[Setting<number>]
Type=0, 1, 2, 3 (1 = skip monitor, 2 = slide show, 3 = notes)
FileName=<file name> (Path of the presentation file. Can be relative to the Session Settings file)
MonitorCount=<number> (the number of monitors to span the slide show or the notes)

The sample PowerShow Session Settings file is as follows:

[Session]
ShowSlideThumbnails=1
ShowNextSlideThumbnails=1
SettingsCount=2

[Setting1]
