expression. PresentationOpen( Pres )

expression An expression that returns a Application object.


NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
PresRequiredPresentationThe presentation that is opened.


For information about using events with the Application object, seeHow to: Use Events with the Application Object.

If your Visual Studio solution includes the Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint reference, this event maps to the following types:

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.EApplication_PresentationOpenEventHandler (the PresentationOpen delegate.)

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.EApplication_Event.PresentationOpen (the PresentationOpen event.)


This example modifies the background color for color scheme three, applies the modified color scheme to the presentation that was just opened, and displays the presentation in slide view.

Private Sub App_PresentationOpen(ByVal Pres As Presentation) 
    With Pres 
        Set CS3 = .ColorSchemes(3) 
        CS3.Colors(ppBackground).RGB = RGB(240, 115, 100) 
        With Windows(1) 
            .Selection.SlideRange.ColorScheme = CS3 
            .ViewType = ppViewSlide 
        End With 
    End With 
End Sub
