Here are some resources to help you with PowerPoint programming:
Note: If you don't know how to use macro snippets or scripts inside PowerPoint, look here...
This started with my Create Spirograph in PowerPoint tutorial -- and thanks to my friend Shyam Pillai who said I could do that so much faster programattically by using this code:
Dim oShp As Shape
Dim I As Single
Const ROTATION_INCREMENT = 5 'Rotation Increment
Const ROTATION_MAX = 360 'Max rotation
'Select a shape on the slide and then run this
Set oShp = ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange(1)
For I = ROTATION_INCREMENT To ROTATION_MAX Step ROTATION_INCREMENT
.Rotation = I
.Left = oShp.Left
.Top = oShp.Top
Remember you need to have some shape selected before you run this code. Also, Shyam adds that you can change the ROTATION_INCREMENT and ROTATION_MAX values to get different graphs.
Shyam Pillai is a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP, visit his site for many VBA snippets, free and commercial PowerPoint add-ins
What can be better to start a blog on PowerPoint programming that discussing a tutorial on using scripts and macros from elsewhere even if you don't know how to do VBA programming!
If you like that thought, run now to this page! As that page says: "This article is not about creating your own macros or scripts to automate PowerPoint. However, if you just want to run any macros or scripts that a friend shares, or you just got it from a book or newsgroup, then you are on the right page."
