expression. WindowDeactivate( Pres, Wn )

expression A variable that represents an Application object.


NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
PresRequiredPresentationThe presentation displayed in the deactivated window.
WnRequiredDocumentWindowThe deactivated document window.


This example finds the file name (without its extension) for the presentation in the window that is being deactivated. It then appends the .htm extension to the file name and saves it as a Web page in the same folder as the presentation.

Private Sub App_WindowDeactivate (ByVal Pres As Presentation, ByVal Wn As DocumentWindow)

    FindNum = InStr(1, Wn.Presentation.FullName, ".")

    If FindNum = 0 Then

        HTMLName = Wn.Presentation.FullName &; ".htm"


        HTMLName = Mid(Wn.Presentation.FullName, 1, FindNum - 1) _
            &; ".htm"

    End If

    Wn.Presentation.SaveCopyAs HTMLName, ppSaveAsHTML

    MsgBox "Presentation being saved in HTML format as " _
        &; HTMLName &; " ."

End Sub
