Hello All,

Does somebody do integration with PowerPoint?
I need some samples how to integrate PowerPoint into my Delphi application
with ability to get all events which this ActiveX will generate.

Thanks,
Dan

To start PowerPoint and start a new presentation it's very easy:
Place a PowerPointApplication rename it to ppa and a Button on a form and then doubleclick on the button and enter this code:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  t:TOleEnum;
begin
  Ppa.Activate;
  Ppa.Visible:= 1;
Ppa.Presentations.Add(1);
//upto now it starts the powerpoint and a new presentation
ppa.Presentations.Item(1).Slides.Add(1,1);
// now there's also a new slide on the presentation
end;
