Use the Shadow property to return a ShadowFormat object. The following example adds a shadowed rectangle to myDocument. The semitransparent, blue shadow is offset 5 points to the right of the rectangle and 3 points above it.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, _

        50, 50, 100, 200).Shadow

    .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 128)

    .OffsetX = 5

    .OffsetY = -3

    .Transparency = 0.5

    .Visible = True
