What's New in Microsoft Office Visio 2003 for ShapeSheet Developers [Visio 2003 SDK Documentation]

Office 2003

Microsoft Office Visio 2003 provides a powerful single platform for your custom drawing solutions. New ShapeSheet sections, rows, and cells, along with Automation objects, properties, methods, and events, give you more options for defining the behavior of the elements in your solutions.

  • Formula Tracing window   To assist in the task of identifying interdependencies between ShapeSheet cells, you can use this window to trace both dependent and precedent cells of a given cell.
  • Style Explorer window   This window provides shape developers with a quick way to determine which shape cells inherit from a given style, or the style from which a given cell inherits its value.
  • Smart tags   You can use smart tags to make shape actions and settings more discoverable, to alert users to incomplete actions, or to let users start processes external to the drawing.
  • Enhanced ShapeSheet spreadsheet   See below for lists of new sections, rows, and cells.
  • New functions   See below for a list of new functions you can use in your formulas.
  • Universal names displayed   The ShapeSheet now displays only universal names in cell formulas and values. (In prior versions, universal names were not visible in the user interface.)

For a list of new features in Visio 2003 that are of interest to Automation developers, see What's new in Microsoft Office Visio 2003 for Automation developers.
