Apache OpenOffice presentations are based on drawing documents. Each page in the presentation is a slide. You can access slides in the same way as a standard drawing is accessed through the DrawPages list of the document object. The service, responsible for presentation documents, also provides the complete service.

Working With Presentations

In addition to the drawing functions that are provided by the Presentation property, the presentation document has a presentation object that provides access to the main properties and control mechanisms for presentations. For example, this object provides a start method that can start presentations.

Dim Doc As Object
Dim Presentation As Object
Doc = ThisComponent
Presentation = Doc.Presentation

The code used in this example creates a Doc object that references the current presentation document and establishes the associated presentation object. The start() method of the object is used to start the example and run the screen presentation.

The following methods are provided as presentation objects:

starts the presentation
ends the presentation
starts the presentation from the beginning and establishes its runtime

The following properties are also available:

AllowAnimations (Boolean)
runs animations in the presentation
CustomShow (String)
allows you to specify the name of the presentation so that you can reference the name in the presentation
FirstPage (String)

IsAlwaysOnTop (Boolean)

IsAutomatic (Boolean)

Pause (long)
