Sequences Object

Office 2007
Represents a collection of Sequence objects. Use a Sequence object to add, find, modify, and clone animation effects.


Use the InteractiveSequences property of the TimeLine object to return a Sequences collection. Use the Add method to add an interactive animation sequence. The following example adds two shapes on the first slide of the active presentation and sets interactive effect for the star shape so that when you click the bevel shape, the star shape is be animated.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub AddNewSequence()
    Dim shp1 As Shape
    Dim shp2 As Shape
    Dim interEffect As Effect

    Set shp1 = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.AddShape _
        (Type:=msoShape32pointStar, Left:=100, _
        Top:=100, Width:=200, Height:=200)
    Set shp2 = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.AddShape _
        (Type:=msoShapeBevel, Left:=400, _
        Top:=200, Width:=150, Height:=100)

    With ActivePresentation.Slides(1).TimeLine.InteractiveSequences.Add(1)
        Set interEffect = .AddEffect(shp2, msoAnimEffectBlinds, _
        interEffect.Shape = shp1
    End With
End Sub
