PowerPoint events in .net

3 New Member
Hi,

I am trying to hook up to PowerPoint events from my c# applicaton. I have seen the msdn article on how to do it but I cannot get it to work (I am using PowerPoint 2003).

Does anyone have any code that they can share / guidance?

Thanks,

Ashley

I don't know how to hook office messages, but you can hook windows events related to specific thread ( find your power point thread and hook related event, with SetWindowHookEx register your hook for PP thread).

Thanks for the tip...I would prefer to catch events straight from PowerPoint, there is code on msdn to do this but i just can't get it to work.

The dll I am writing is for smart tags, and I am having trouble because sometimes Powerpoint is remaining running (powerpnt.exe in Task Manager). One action of my smart tags calls InsertChart (code below). The designated line causes powerpoint to remain running even after the user has manually closed the...

I'm working with Office Application objects in a client/server WinForm application which allows the user to access remotely stored files. When the user opens the remote file, it is downloaded to their machine, and it is opened in the appropriate Office app. I've hooked the various BeforeSave events to let me know if/when they've made modifications to the file, so I can mark it as dirty. However, I would like to know when the Office...

I created a VB.NET-PowerPoint-AddIn as described in the VisualStudio 2003 documentation. That works very well. The AddIn adds a new toolbar to PowerPoint if the active document is based on a certain master. So I had to catch all events that notify a change of the active presentation. For that, I made two approaches: 1. A method that handles the apropriate events directly via HANDLES:

Converting PowerPoint to Flash would absolutely be a good choice to distribute your bulky PowerPoint presentations. You can do the whole PowerPoint to Flash conversion manually or with professional applications. First, you'll need to prepare the PowerPoint files. Make sure you are not using any complicated gradients or animations. These will be interpreted poorly when they are brought into Flash. Also, make sure there are no objects that...
