Example

The following example adds a shape, and adds a three-second fill animation to that shape.

Sub AddShapeSetAnimFill()

    Dim effBlinds As Effect
    Dim shpRectangle As Shape
    Dim animBlinds As AnimationBehavior

    'Adds rectangle and sets animiation effect
    Set shpRectangle = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes _
        .AddShape(Type:=msoShapeRectangle, Left:=100, _
        Top:=100, Width:=50, Height:=50)

    Set effBlinds = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).TimeLine.MainSequence _
        .AddEffect(Shape:=shpRectangle, effectId:=msoAnimEffectBlinds)

    'Sets the duration of the animation
    effBlinds.Timing.Duration = 3

    'Adds a behavior to the animation
    Set animBlinds = effBlinds.Behaviors.Add(msoAnimTypeProperty)

    'Sets the animation color effect and the formula to use
    With animBlinds.PropertyEffect
        .Property = msoAnimColor
        .Formula = RGB(Red:=255, Green:=255, Blue:=255)
    End With

End Sub
