Application.NewPresentation event (PowerPoint)

Occurs after a presentation is created, as it is added to the Presentations collection.


expression. NewPresentation( _Pres_ )

expression An expression that returns an Application object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Pres Required Presentation The new presentation.


If your Visual Studio solution includes the Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint reference, this event maps to the following types:

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.EApplication_NewPresentationEventHandler (the NewPresentation delegate.)

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.EApplication_Event.NewPresentation (the NewPresentation event.)


This example uses the RGB function to set the slide master background color for the new presentation to salmon pink and then applies the third color scheme to the new presentation.

Private Sub App_NewPresentation(ByVal Pres As Presentation) 
    With Pres 
        Set CS3 = .ColorSchemes(3) 
        CS3.Colors(ppBackground).RGB = RGB(240, 115, 100) 
        .SlideMaster.ColorScheme = CS3 
    End With 
End Sub
