CustomXML Parts are part of the Word object model, only. They link to ContentControls, which are also Word-specific.

You might want to ask in the Powerpoint newsgroup what kinds of approaches are available to you as possible alternatives. Be sure to describe how you were thinking about using them.

Hi ,

CustomXMLPart are not only availabkle in Word, they are also available in Excel and PowerPoint.

Are their any VSTO / PPT related information Not only about CustomXMLPart.

Almost everything on the "What's New for Developers in PowerPoint 2007"

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/office/aa905467.aspx

is not about PPT. Now it is possible to create addins for PPT with VSTO SE and I find not much infos about

Hi Marcel

Your best source for information about the individual Office object models are the newsgroups, as listed in the "Please Read First" message at the top of this forum. I gave you the link to the Powerpoint group in my previous message.

VSTO only enhances what the Office applications already provide. As far as Add-ins for most applications go, this would be Ribbon and Custom Task Panes. You'll find more documentation on the VSTO site about Word and Excel because there is document-level customization available for these (Office 2003, currently). And for Outlook because Add-ins for Outlook have been supported since 2003 and VSTO also enhances some things in that object model.

But for Powerpoint you really need to ask in that newsgroup.
