Class SlideShowView (PowerPoint VBA)

The class SlideShowView represents the view in a slide show window.

Class SlideShowWindow gives access to class SlideShowView.

To use a SlideShowView class variable it first needs to be instantiated, for example

Dim ssv as SlideShowView
Set ssv = SlideShowWindows(1).View

SlideShowView class variables can be set using the SlideShowWindow.View procedure.

GotoClick - Plays an animation associated with a specified mouse click and any animations that follow on the slide.

GotoNamedShow - Switches to the specified custom, or named, slide show during another slide show. When the slide show advances from the current slide, the next slide displayed will be the next one in the specified custom slide show, not the next one in current slide show.
