How to set HyperLink.ActionType.StartMacro

Hi, I’m using the latest version of Aspose.Slides (

I want to add an action button in the slide that calls the macro.
But I don’t know how to set it.

var shape = ppt.Shapes.AddAutoShape(ShapeType.BlankButton, 0, 0, 300, 100);
shape.HyperlinkClick = /* How do you do it? */

I debugged and looked at the existing action buttons.


Please see the attached image.

What seems to be the contents of the macro was set in the mysterious property.
Can this be set programmatically?

Help me.

Best Regard.

Thank you for the issue description. It seems Aspose.Slides has not that ability. I have logged the issue in our tracking system with ID SLIDESNET-42479 for further invetigation. You will be notified when this feature is added.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as SLIDESNET-42479) have been fixed in this update.

A new API has been added to Aspose.Slides 21.5. You can use this feature for your purposes as below:

using (Presentation presentation = new Presentation())
    string macroName = "TestMacro";
    string macroModuleName = string.Format("{0}Module", macroName);

    IVbaProject vbaProject = new VbaProject();
    IVbaModule vbaModule = vbaProject.Modules.AddEmptyModule(macroModuleName);

    vbaModule.SourceCode = string.Format(@"
        Attribute VB_Name = ""{0}""
        Sub TestMacro()
            MsgBox ""Test completed!""
        End Sub", macroModuleName);

    presentation.VbaProject = vbaProject;

    IAutoShape shape = presentation.Slides[0].Shapes.AddAutoShape(ShapeType.BlankButton, 20, 20, 80, 30);

    presentation.Save(dataPath + "result.pptm", SaveFormat.Pptm);
