Hi all,

I have a form that is a playlist control for powerpoint slides that I would like to run as a control panel on the primary display monitor, but have the form display and run the powerpoint slides on the secondary display monitor. I am using a dual monitor video card. Could someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction as to how to accomplish this.

Thanks in advance.

I perhaps need to clarify my initial question.

I am writing the application in visual basic and I'm using the Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint object I need to make the output of the slideshow go to the second monitor.

Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.SlideShowWindow has some properties like height, width, and left.
How do I determine which values to set these to , to get the output to go to the second monitor

The details I can get from the "Screen" class doesnt really mesh into these values in a way I understand.

I also need to figure out how to make an *.exe run onto the second monitor as well.

Any help you can provide is very much appreciated!

Thase, this is mostly a PowerPoint issue- not a VSTO 2005 SE one, and those of us hanging out on this forum are mostly experts in the latter rather than the former. However, you are in luck! I know some of the PowerPoint programmability MVPs, and I know that they are monitoring the ng's for PowerPoint dev. You can find out more here:

Look at the Newsgroups and Community links.

Best.
