Display/Show related procedures in class Application (PowerPoint VBA)

This page presents procedures from class Application related to the theme Display/Show: DisplayAlerts, DisplayDocumentInformationPanel, DisplayGridLines, DisplayGuides, ShowStartupDialog, ShowWindowsInTaskbar and SlideShowWindows


Sets or returns whether Microsoft PowerPoint displays alerts while running a macro.

Possible Values are ppAlertsAll - All alerts displayed, ppAlertsNone - No alerts displayed.

The value of the DisplayAlerts property is not reset once a macro stops running; it is maintained throughout a session. It is not stored across sessions, so when PowerPoint begins, it is reset to ppAlertsNone. The value of the DisplayAlerts property can be one of these PpAlertLevel constants.

Application.DisplayAlerts = ppAlertsAll


Returns or sets whether the Document Properties panel is displayed in the Microsoft PowerPoint user interface.

Application.DisplayDocumentInformationPanel = True


Determines whether to display gridlines in Microsoft PowerPoint.

The value returned by the DisplayGridLines property can be one of these MsoTriState constants.

Application.DisplayGridLines = msoTrue


Gets or sets whether drawing guides are displayed in the application.

Application.DisplayGuides = msoTrue


Determines whether to display the New Presentation task pane when Microsoft PowerPoint is started.

The value of the ShowStartupDialog property can be one of these MsoTriState constants.

Application.ShowStartupDialog = msoTrue


Determines whether there is a separate Windows taskbar button for each open presentation.

When set to True, this property simulates the look of a single-document interface (SDI), which makes it easier to navigate between open presentations. However, if you work with multiple presentations while other applications are open, you may want to set this property to False to avoid filling your taskbar with unnecessary buttons. The value of the ShowWindowsInTaskbar property can be one of these MsoTriState constants.

Application.ShowWindowsInTaskbar = msoTrue


Returns a SlideShowWindows collection that represents all open slide show windows.

For information about returning a single member of a collection, see Returning an object from a collection.
