<WalkPreference> element

<WalkPreference> element

Specifies whether an endpoint of a 1-D shape moves to a horizontal or vertical connection point on the shape it is glued to, using dynamic glue, when the shape is moved to an ambiguous position.




The default. Both endpoints of the 1-D shape move to horizontal connection points (side-to-side connections).


The begin point of the 1-D shape moves to a vertical connection point, and the end point moves to a horizontal connection point (top-to-side or bottom-to-side connections).


The begin point of the 1-D shape moves to a horizontal connection point, and the end point moves to a vertical connection point (side-to-top or side-to-bottom connections).


Both endpoints of the 1-D shape move to vertical connection points (top-to-bottom connections).


    [Unit = "unitval"]
    [F = "formula"]
    [Err = "error"]> 



Optional string. Represents a unit of measure. The default is NUM. For details about NUM, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa218417(v=office.10) Units of measure.


Optional string. Represents the element's formula. This attribute can contain the string "someFormula" if the formula exists locally, "No Formula" if the formula is locally deleted or blocked, or "Inh" if the formula is inherited.

If the attribute is not present, the element's formula is a simple constant, for example, <element> 5 </element>.


Optional string. Indicates that the formula evaluates to an error. The value of Err is the current value (an error message string); the value of the element is the last valid value.

The WalkPreference element has no effect on dynamic connectors. A dynamic connector's behavior is specified by its routing style. The http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa203185(v=office.10) RouteStyle element specifies the default routing style for all dynamic connectors on a page; the http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa203182(v=office.10) ShapeRouteStyle element specifies the routing style for a specific dynamic connector.

The WalkPreference element is relevant only when contained in a http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa203207(v=office.10) Shape or http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa203205(v=office.10) StyleSheet element. It is ignored when contained in a http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa191981(v=office.10) DocumentSheet or http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa203159(v=office.10) PageSheet element.
