TextFrame Object (PowerPoint)

Represents the text frame in a Shape object. Contains the text in the text frame and the properties and methods that control the alignment and anchoring of the text frame.

Use the TextFrame property to return a TextFrame object. The following example adds a rectangle to myDocument, adds text to the rectangle, and then sets the margins for the text frame.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes _

        .AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 0, 0, 250, 140).TextFrame

    .TextRange.Text = "Here is some test text"

    .MarginBottom = 10

    .MarginLeft = 10

    .MarginRight = 10

    .MarginTop = 10

End With

Use the HasTextFrame property to determine whether a shape has a text frame, and use the HasText property to determine whether the text frame contains text, as shown in the following example.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

For Each s In myDocument.Shapes

    If s.HasTextFrame Then

        With s.TextFrame

            If .HasText Then MsgBox .TextRange.Text

        End With

    End If

Next
