Hyperlink object (PowerPoint)

Represents a hyperlink associated with a non-placeholder shape or text.

Remarks

You can use a hyperlink to jump to an Internet or intranet site, to another file, or to a slide within the active presentation. The Hyperlink object is a member of the Hyperlinks collection. The Hyperlinks collection contains all the hyperlinks on a slide or a master.

Example

Use the Hyperlinkproperty to return a hyperlink for a shape. A shape can have two different hyperlinks assigned to it: one that is followed when the user clicks the shape during a slide show, and another that is followed when the user passes the mouse pointer over the shape during a slide show. For the hyperlink to be active during a slide show, the Action property must be set to ppActionHyperlink. The following example sets the mouse-click action for shape three on slide one in the active presentation to an Internet link.

With ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes(3) _

        .ActionSettings(ppMouseClick)

    .Action = ppActionHyperlink

    .Hyperlink.Address = "https://www.microsoft.com"

End With

A slide can contain more than one hyperlink. Each non-placeholder shape can have a hyperlink; the text within a shape can have its own hyperlink; and each individual character can have its own hyperlink. Use Hyperlinks (index), where index is the hyperlink number, to return a single Hyperlink object. The following example adds the shape three mouse-click hyperlink to the Favorites folder.

ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes(3) _

    .ActionSettings(ppMouseClick).Hyperlink.AddToFavorites

Note

When you use this method to add a hyperlink to the Internet Explorer Favorites folder, an icon is added to the Favorites menu without a corresponding name. You must add the name from within Internet Explorer.
