ThreeDFormat.RotationY Property

Office 2007
Returns or sets the rotation of the extruded shape around the y-axis, in degrees. Read/write Single.

Syntax

expression.RotationY

expression   An expression that returns a ThreeDFormat object.

Remarks

The RotationY property can be a value from – 90 through 90. A positive value indicates rotation to the left; a negative value indicates rotation to the right.

To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the x-axis, use the RotationX property of the ThreeDFormat object. To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the z-axis, use the Rotation property of the Shape object. To change the direction of the extrusion's sweep path without rotating the front face of the extrusion, use the SetExtrusionDirection method.

Example

This example adds three identical extruded ovals to myDocument and sets their rotation around the y-axis to – 30, 0, and 30 degrees, respectively.

Visual Basic for Applications
Set myDocument = ActiveDocument
With myDocument.Shapes
    With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 30, 50, 25).ThreeD
        .Visible = True
        .RotationY = -30
    End With
    With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 70, 50, 25).ThreeD
        .Visible = True
        .RotationY = 0
    End With
    With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 110, 50, 25).ThreeD
        .Visible = True
        .RotationY = 30
    End With
End With
