Project Description

Project

----------

PowerPoint 2013 introduces a new application level event [url removed, login to view], see here: [url removed, login to view]

We would like to use this event within a COM add-in written in C# - but not only in PowerPoint 2013 where the event is readily available in the PowerPoint object model, but also for PowerPoint 2007 and PowerPoint 2010.

Approach

-------------

Unless you have a better idea, it may be worthwile starting with the idea of monitoring registry access (RegQueryValue) to the following registry key:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common\AutofitGroupWhenDragResize

PowerPoint seems to be querying this registry key every time an object is resized.

Other approaches are also welcome.

Environment

-----------------

- C# / VS 2010 .dll which is loaded as PowerPoint Add-In through a proprietary COM shim

- Pure .NET + Windows API / no 3rd party components allowed

- Windows >= Windows XP (32/64bit)

- Office >= Office 2007 (32/64bit)

Deliverable

---------------

- C# class incl. source code and documentation

Timeframe

--------------

Within next 2 weeks
