Group Method

Office 2003

Groups the shapes in the specified range. Returns the grouped shapes as a single Shape object.

expression.Group

expression    Required. An expression that returns a ShapeRange object.

Remarks

Because a group of shapes is treated as a single shape, grouping and ungrouping shapes changes the number of items in the Shapes collection and changes the index numbers of items that come after the affected items in the collection.

Example

This example adds two shapes to myDocument, groups the two new shapes, sets the fill for the group, rotates the group, and sends the group to the back of the drawing layer.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)
With myDocument.Shapes
    .AddShape(msoShapeCan, 50, 10, 100, 200).Name = "shpOne"
    .AddShape(msoShapeCube, 150, 250, 100, 200).Name = "shpTwo"
    With .Range(Array("shpOne", "shpTwo")).Group
        .Fill.PresetTextured msoTextureBlueTissuePaper
        .Rotation = 45
        .ZOrder msoSendToBack
    End With
End With
