PowerPoint: How to read Video plays FullScreen by c# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys!

    I am using PowerPoint 2013. If you insert a video on the slide, you can check at: Video Tools => Playback => "Play Full Screen"

    How do I get/set this checkbox by C# (Interop Object Model)?

    At Edit Mode, I know its possible to use:

    If Application.CommandBars.GetPressedMso("MoviePlayFullScreen") = False Then _
     Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso ("MoviePlayFullScreen")

    Workarounds like setting the video to fullscreen by coordinates oder using OLE Stuff like:

    With oplayer.OLEFormat.Object 
            .URL = "C:\Users\Public\Videos\Sample Videos\Wildlife.wmv" 
            .fullScreen = True 
            .windowlessVideo = True 

    are not working. I need to be able to get/set it by code at Edit Mode and get it on a running slideshow.

    I searched already at this location:
    • Shape.OLEFormat.Object
    • Shape.PictureFormat
    • Shape.PictureFormat.Crop
    • Shape.AnimationSettings
    • Shape.AnimationSettings.PlaySettings
    • Shape.MediaFormat
    • Slide.TimeLine.MainSequence
    • Slide.TimeLine.InteractiveSequences
    • View.Player
    I even tried to select the shape a runtime to execute "Application.CommandBars.GetPressedMso", but it didnt work.

  • Hi dexit2k,

    I already suggest you the possible solution for your requirement in the thread below.

    I try to search the powerpoint object model but as I mentioned before there is nothing that can help you.

    no any direct property, method available to access that checkbox.

    we will try to look forward in this issue, if we find something useful we will let you know about that.
