Shape.Tags property (PowerPoint)
Returns a Tags object that represents the tags for the specified object. Read-only.
expression A variable that represents a Shape object.
Tag values are added and stored in uppercase text. You should perform tests on tag values using uppercase text, as shown in the second example.
This example adds a tag named "REGION" and a tag named "PRIORITY" to slide one in the active presentation.
With Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Tags .Add "Region", "East" 'Adds "Region" tag with value "East" .Add "Priority", "Low" 'Adds "Priority" tag with value "Low" End With
This example searches through the tags for each slide in the active presentation. If there's a tag named "PRIORITY," a message box displays the tag value. If the object doesn't have a tag named "PRIORITY," the example adds this tag with the value "Unknown."
For Each s In Application.ActivePresentation.Slides With s.Tags found = False For i = 1 To .Count If .Name(i) = "PRIORITY" Then found = True slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex MsgBox "Slide " & slNum & " Priority: " & .Value(i) End If Next If Not found Then slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex .Add "Priority", "Unknown" MsgBox "Slide " & slNum & " Priority tag added: Unknown" End If End With Next
