How can I create the Object for my PPT active presentation ?

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone !

My question is in the title : I'm using PPT Office 2003, and don't succeed to create the object for the presentation already opened in a current PPT session. I'm very new to handling COM objects via AutoIt and as you can see still have a lot to learn :sweating:

I tried this code :

Global $oAppl = ObjGet("", "PowerPoint.Application")
If @error Or Not IsObj($oAppl) Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error creating PPT application. @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Global $oPresInterface = $oAppl.Presentations ; Get presentation interface
Global $oPresentation = $oPresInterface.ActivePresentation

Obviously last line doesn't work at all, I got an error message saying the command is unknown... please anyone, help me with this !

Thanks in advance,

Eazyrider

Search the Example Scripts section of the forum. There is a PPT UDF available.

Yep I was aware of it before I posted in this forum. I couldn't find in the UDF any function allowing me to manipulate the Active Presentation...

I guess there must be a simple way though, not too far from the code I wrote maybe :ermm: .

Any help on this will be much appreciated !

See my answer to your post in the example scripts forum.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Problem solved, the answer is the property ActivePresentation is applied to an Application, unlike what i wrote in my program.

Thanks again !
