expression A variable that represents an Application object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
SldRange Required SlideRange The selection of slides. In most cases this would be a single slide (for example, in Slide View you navigate to the next slide), but in some cases this could be multiple slides (for example, a marquee selection in Slide Sorter View).


To access the Application events, declare an Application variable in the General Declarations section of your code. Then set the variable equal to the Application object for which you want to access events. For information about using events with the Microsoft PowerPoint Application object, see How to: Use Events with the Application Object.

The following table describes when the event occurs in each of the views.

View Description
Normal, Master Occurs when the slide in the slide pane changes.
Slide Sorter Occurs when the selection changes.
Slide, Notes Occurs when the slide changes.
Outline Does not occur.


This example displays a message every time a user selects a different slide. This example assumes that an Application object called PPTApp has been declared by using the WithEvents keyword.

Private Sub PPTApp_SlideSelectionChanged(ByVal SldRange As SlideRange)

    MsgBox "Slide selection changed."

End Sub
