PlaceholderFormat Object

Office 2007
Contains properties that apply specifically to placeholders, such as placeholder type.


Use the PlaceholderFormat property to return a PlaceholderFormat object. The following example adds text to placeholder one on slide one in the active presentation if that placeholder exists and is a horizontal title placeholder.

Visual Basic for Applications
With ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.Placeholders
    If .Count > 0 Then
        With .Item(1)
            Select Case .PlaceholderFormat.Type
                Case ppPlaceholderTitle
                    .TextFrame.TextRange = "Title Text"
                Case ppPlaceholderCenterTitle
                    .TextFrame.TextRange = "Centered Title Text"
                Case Else
                    MsgBox "There's no horizontal " _
                        "title on this slide"
            End Select
        End With
    End If
End With
