  • Hello Taimoor,

    It looks like you are interested in the ShowScrollbar property of the SlideShowSettings class.

    Also the Slide class provides the Select method. If you try to make a selection that isn't appropriate for the view, your code will fail. For example, you can select a slide in slide sorter view but not in slide view.
