expression A variable that represents a SlideRange object.

Return value



Unlike the SlideID property, the SlideIndex property of a Slide object can change when you add slides to the presentation or rearrange the slides in the presentation. Therefore, using the FindBySlideID method with the slide's ID number can be a more reliable way to return a specific Slide object from a Slides collection than using the Item method with the slide's index number.


This example displays the index number of the currently displayed slide in slide show window one.

MsgBox SlideShowWindows(1).View.Slide.SlideIndex
