Application.WindowDeactivate event (PowerPoint)

Occurs when the application window or any document window is deactivated.


expression.WindowDeactivate (Pres, Wn)

expression A variable that represents an Application object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Pres Required Presentation The presentation displayed in the deactivated window.
Wn Required DocumentWindow The deactivated document window.


This example finds the file name (without its extension) for the presentation in the window that is being deactivated. It then appends the .htm extension to the file name and saves it as a webpage in the same folder as the presentation.

Private Sub App_WindowDeactivate (ByVal Pres As Presentation, ByVal Wn As DocumentWindow)

    FindNum = InStr(1, Wn.Presentation.FullName, ".")

    If FindNum = 0 Then

        HTMLName = Wn.Presentation.FullName & ".htm"


        HTMLName = Mid(Wn.Presentation.FullName, 1, FindNum - 1) _
            & ".htm"

    End If

    Wn.Presentation.SaveCopyAs HTMLName, ppSaveAsHTML

    MsgBox "Presentation being saved in HTML format as " _
        & HTMLName & " ."

End Sub
