RotationEffect Object (PowerPoint)

Represents a rotation effect for an AnimationBehavior object.

Use the RotationEffect property of the AnimationBehavior object to return a RotationEffect object. The following example refers to the rotation effect for a given animation behavior.


Use the By , From , and To properties of the RotationEffect object to affect an object's animation rotation. The following example adds a new shape to the first slide and sets the rotation animation behavior.

Sub AddRotation()

    Dim shpNew As Shape

    Dim effNew As Effect

    Dim aniNew As AnimationBehavior

    Set shpNew = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes _

        .AddShape(Type:=msoShape5pointStar, Left:=0, _

        Top:=0, Width:=100, Height:=100)

    Set effNew = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).TimeLine.MainSequence _

        .AddEffect(Shape:=shpNew, effectId:=msoAnimEffectCustom)

    Set aniNew = effNew.Behaviors.Add(msoAnimTypeRotation)

    With aniNew.RotationEffect

        'Rotate 270 degrees from current position

        .By = 270

    End With

End Sub
