Create Control to use in Powerpoint

P: n/a
Hi,

I would like to write a Control in vb.net that I would be able to embed in a
Powerpoint presentation to display custom data. Nothing overly fancy.

Is this possible? (COM Interop?) What would I need to do? Could anyone
provide me with a brief sample "Hello World"?
kind regards

I think that's really difficult.

You can write and engine to render the powerpoint file. That's really a
lot of work...

Hi Fergus,
Did you buy that reference book from Herfried or did you get it for free.

I've had the brain surgery done and now I'm plugged in!! :-D

I also use the OE newsgroups list and search that for
keywords. And I've taken Herfried's cue and I keep a
browser handy for Google Groups searches. I never knew
it existed. It's very useful.


If everybody posting there uses Google Groups Search before posting, we
can go on holiday.

You misunderstand:

I have a program that receives data and displays a chart. I would like to
emded this program as an object in Powerpoint. In Powerpoint you can do
"Insert - Object" and I believe that you can choose from some ActiveX
components.

I would like to create such a component.
I DO NOT WANT TO render a Powerpoint file but for PP to display my ActiveX
box the contents of which my own program displays.

Hello Oliver,

I don't know if you're aware of them, but these are (some) of the other
newsgroups that are available. It is likely that there will be more expertise
regarding PP embedding .NET Controls. Our expertise lies with the VB.NET
language and the more closely related matters. Office integration take us is a
bit beyond, I'm afraid.

news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...sting.controls
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...per.automation

I hope you find what you're after. :-)

Regards,
Fergus
