Project Description


[url removed, login to view] objects expose the following events in PowerPoint 2007-2013:

Activate, BeforeDoubleClick, BeforeRightClick, Calculate, Deactivate, MouseDown, MouseMove, MouseUp, Resize, Select, SeriesChange

However, if you embed an Excel Chart in PowerPoint, the [url removed, login to view] object is converted to a [url removed, login to view] object which does not expose any events. The same is true if you create a new Chart from within PowerPoint.


- C# 4.0/Visual Studio 2010 or VBA and Windows API

- PowerPoint 2007 - 2013 (32 and 64bit)

- Windows XP - Windows 8.1 (32 and 64bit)

- No third party libraries or components allowed

Project task:

I need to be able to respond to the same events for a [url removed, login to view] object through a PowerPoint add-in as would be possible for an [url removed, login to view] object in Excel, all this with only PowerPoint and not Excel being open.


- Documented source code (C# 4.0 or VBA)


- To be delivered by November 25, 2013

Milestones payments:
