AnimationSettings Object

Office 2007
Represents the special effects applied to the animation for the specified shape during a slide show.


Use the AnimationSettings property of the Shape object to return the AnimationSettings object. The following example adds a slide that contains both a title and a three-item list to the active presentation, and then it sets the list to be animated by first-level paragraphs, to fly in from the left when animated, to dim to the specified color after being animated, and to animate its items in reverse order.

Visual Basic for Applications
Set sObjs = ActivePresentation.Slides.Add(2, ppLayoutText).Shapes
sObjs.Title.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = "Top Three Reasons"
With sObjs.Placeholders(2)
    .TextFrame.TextRange.Text = _
        "Reason 1" & VBNewLine & "Reason 2" & VBNewLine & "Reason 3"
    With .AnimationSettings
        .TextLevelEffect = ppAnimateByFirstLevel
        .EntryEffect = ppEffectFlyFromLeft
        .AfterEffect = ppAfterEffectDim
        .DimColor.RGB = RGB(100, 120, 100)
        .AnimateTextInReverse = True
    End With
End With
