Programming exit animations from VSTO


G

Guest

Is there a way to access and set exit animations from VSTO? I currently am
creating four text box shapes to a slide and filling them with text, "A",
"B", "C", and "D". I would like to program an animation that displays all
four textboxes, then after say 10 seconds uses an exit animation to remove
one textbox, then another, and so on. In VSTO I can easily set entrance
animations, but I can not find exit animations anywhere. If anyone knows how
please help.

That seems easy enough, but I think I need a bigger hint. I am writing in
C#. To do the entry effect I am writing:

slide.Shapes[2].AnimationSettings.EntryEffect =
Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.PpEntryEffect.ppEffectFade;

slide.Shapes[2].AnimationSettings.AdvanceMode =
Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.PpAdvanceMode.ppAdvanceOnTime;

slide.Shapes[2].AnimationSettings.AdvanceTime = 2.5F;

How would I add the .exit = mso.true to the specific Shape object?

Hi John,

You need to use the new TimeLine object introduced with PowerPoint 2002. You
can access the TimeLine through the Slide object. More information about
TimeLine object can be found at http://skp.mvps.org/ppttimeline1.htm

Ok, one step closer. By using the timeline I've now got my exit animations.
The final problem is how to figure out how to set the time interval for the
animations. I want the animations to use the "medium" speed, and occur at 5
second intervals. So A-D appear on the slide, 5 seconds later 1 of them does
an exit animation, 5 seconds later the next, etc.

How do I set the animation speed and interval from the Timeline object?

There is this Timing object and its TriggerDelayTime property for Effect and
AnimationBehavior objects. If you want an animation to start 5 seconds after
another animation, you need to set it to start "after previous" through
TriggerType property of Timing object.
