Comments Object

Office 2007
Represents a collection of Comment objects.


Use the Comments property to refer to the Comments collection. The following example displays the number of comments on the current slide.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub CountComments()
    MsgBox "You have " & ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange(1) _
        .Comments.Count & " comments on this slide."
End Sub

Use the Add method to add a comment to a slide. This example adds a new comment to the first slide of the active presentation.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub AddComment()
    Dim sldNew As Slide
    Dim cmtNew As Comment

    Set sldNew = ActivePresentation.Slides.Add(Index:=1, _
    Set cmtNew = sldNew.Comments.Add(Left:=12, Top:=12, _
        Author:="Jeff Smith", AuthorInitials:="JS", _
        Text:="You might consider reviewing the new specs" & _
        "for more up-to-date information.")
End Sub
