expression. Reveal

expression A variable that represents a FilterEffect object.

Return Value



Setting a value of msoTrue for the Reveal property when the filter effect type is msoAnimFilterEffectTypeWipe will make the shape appear. Setting a value of msoFalse will make the object disappear. In other words, if your filter is set to wipe and Reveal is true, you will get a wipe-in effect, and when Reveal is false, you will get a wipe-out effect.

The value of the Reveal property can be one of these MsoTriState constants.

    Dim shpHeart As Shape
    Dim effNew As Effect
    Dim bhvEffect As AnimationBehavior

    Set sldFirst = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

    Set shpHeart = sldFirst.Shapes.AddShape(Type:=msoShapeHeart, _
        Left:=100, Top:=100, Width:=100, Height:=100)

    Set effNew = sldFirst.TimeLine.MainSequence.AddEffect _
        (Shape:=shpHeart, EffectID:=msoAnimEffectChangeFillColor, _

    Set bhvEffect = effNew.Behaviors.Add(msoAnimTypeFilter)

    With bhvEffect.FilterEffect
         .Type = msoAnimFilterEffectTypeWipe
         .Subtype = msoAnimFilterEffectSubtypeUp
         .Reveal = msoTrue
