GroupShapes Object (PowerPoint)

Represents the individual shapes within a grouped shape. Each shape is represented by a Shape object. Using theItemmethod with this object, you can work with single shapes within a group without having to ungroup them.

Example

Use the GroupItemsproperty to return the GroupShapes collection. Use GroupItems (index), where index is the number of the individual shape within the grouped shape, to return a single shape from the GroupShapes collection. The following example adds three triangles to myDocument, groups them, sets a color for the entire group, and then changes the color for the second triangle only.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes
    .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, 10, _
        10, 100, 100).Name = "shpOne"

    .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, 150, _
        10, 100, 100).Name = "shpTwo"

    .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, 300, _
        10, 100, 100).Name = "shpThree"

    With .Range(Array("shpOne", "shpTwo", "shpThree")).Group
        .Fill.PresetTextured msoTextureBlueTissuePaper
        .GroupItems(2).Fill.PresetTextured msoTextureGreenMarble
    End With
End With
