CustomerData.Delete Method (PowerPoint)
expression An expression that returns a CustomerData object.
|Id||Required||String||The ID of the CustomXMLPart object to be deleted.|
Individual CustomXMLPart objects in the CustomerData collection are represented by GUIDs (globally unique identifiers). Pass the GUID that represents the custom XML part that you want to delete to the Id parameter of the Delete method as a String. You can get the ID of a particular custom XML part by iterating through the collection, using the Id property of the CustomerData collection.
The following example shows how to use the Delete method to delete a custom XML part from the CustomerData collection. It adds a new custom XML part to the CustomerData collection of the first shape on the first slide of the active presentaion. Then it gets the ID of the new part and passes it to the Delete method.
Public Sub Delete_Example() Dim pptSlide As Slide Set pptSlide = ActivePresentation.Slides(1) Dim pptShape As Shape Set pptShape = pptSlide.Shapes(1) ' Get the CustomerData collection of the shape Dim pptCustomerData As customerData Set pptCustomerData = pptShape.customerData ' Get the current count of custom XML parts Debug.Print pptCustomerData.Count ' Add a new CustomXMLPart object to the CustomerData ' collection for this shape and get the revised count of ' custom XML parts Dim pptCustomXMLPart As CustomXMLPart Set pptCustomXMLPart = pptCustomerData.Add Debug.Print pptCustomerData.Count ' Get the ID of the new part Dim myString As String myString = pptCustomXMLPart.Id Debug.Print myString ' Delete the new part and re-check the count of custom XML parts pptCustomerData.Delete (myString) Debug.Print pptCustomerData.Count End Sub
