Represents a set effect for an animation behavior. You can use the SetEffect object to set the value of a property.


Use the SetEffect property of the AnimationBehavior object to return a SetEffect object. Set effects can be changed using the SetEffect object's Property and To properties.


The following example adds a shape to the first slide of the active presentation and sets a set effect animation behavior.

Sub ChangeSetEffect()

    Dim sldFirst As Slide
    Dim shpHeart As Shape
    Dim effNew As Effect
    Dim bhvEffect As AnimationBehavior

    Set sldFirst = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

    Set shpHeart = sldFirst.Shapes.AddShape(Type:=msoShapeHeart, _
        Left:=100, Top:=100, Width:=100, Height:=100)

    Set effNew = sldFirst.TimeLine.MainSequence.AddEffect _
        (Shape:=shpHeart, EffectID:=msoAnimEffectChangeFillColor, _

    Set bhvEffect = effNew.Behaviors.Add(msoAnimTypeSet)

    With bhvEffect.SetEffect
         .Property = msoAnimShapeFillColor
         .To = RGB(Red:=0, Green:=255, Blue:=255)
    End With

End Sub
