Presentation Selection Change RRS feed

  • Question

  • We can detect when a slide get selected by SlideSelectionChanged.

    Do we have the same event for presentation selection change?

    for example, I have 3 presentations on the screen. How can we know when a presentation get selected? 

    Note: I am using PowerPoint 2013, VS Ultimate 2013

  • Hi Shipbk11,

    Based on the description, you want to get the event when the presentaion is selected.

    As far as I know, there is no such event we can use to determin when the presentaion is switched. However as a workaround, we can use Application.WindowActivate. To determin the specific presentaion, we colud use the Pres parameter of this event.

    You can get more detail about events about PowerPoint application from link below:
    Application.WindowActivate Event (PowerPoint)

    Also if you want to Powerpoint support this event, you can submit it from link below:
    Submit Feedback - Microsoft Office
