Sample Visual Basic Procedure

  Sub GroupObjects()

' Dimension the variables.
Dim shapeObject As shape
Dim lSlideNumber As Long
Dim strPrompt, strTitle As String
Dim ShapeList() As String
Dim count As Long

' Initialize the counter.
count = 0

' Make sure PowerPoint is in slide view.
If ActiveWindow.ViewType <> ppViewSlide Then

' Set up the error message.
strPrompt = "You must be in slide view to run this macro." _
& " Change to slide view and run the macro again."
strTitle = "Not In Slide View"

' Display the error message.
MsgBox strPrompt, vbExclamation, strTitle

' Stop the macro.
End

End If

' Get the current slide number.
lSlideNumber = ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange.SlideNumber

' Loop through the shapes on the slide.
For Each shapeObject In _
ActivePresentation.Slides(lSlideNumber).Shapes

' See whether shape is a placeholder.
If shapeObject.Type <> msoPlaceholder Then

' Increment count if the shape is not a placeholder.
count = count + 1

' Get the name of the shape and store it in the ShapeList
' array.
ReDim Preserve ShapeList(1 To count)
ShapeList(count) = shapeObject.Name

End If

Next shapeObject

' If more than 1 object (excluding a placeholder object) is found,
' group the objects.
If count > 1 Then
With ActivePresentation.Slides(lSlideNumber).Shapes

' Group the shapes together.
.Range(ShapeList()).Group.Select
End With
Else

Select Case count

' One shape found.
Case 1

' Set up the message.
strPrompt = "Only one shape found." _
& " You need at least two shapes to group."
strTitle = "One Shape Available"

' Zero shapes found.
Case 0

' Set up the message.
strPrompt = "No shapes found. You need to have at " _
& "least two shapes, excluding placeholders."
strTitle = "No Shapes Available"

' An error occurred.
Case Else

' Set up the message.
strPrompt = "The macro found an error it could not correct."
strTitle = "Error"

End Select

' Display the message.
MsgBox strPrompt, vbExclamation, strTitle

End If

End Sub
