Version Information

Version Added: Visio 2007

Syntax

expression .HorizontalPosition

expression An expression that returns a GraphicItem object.

Return Value

VisGraphicPositionHorizontal

Remarks

The default horizontal callout position for graphic items in the GraphicItems collection of a Master object of type visTypeDataGraphic, commonly called a data graphic master, is specified by the settings of the Master.DataGraphicHorizontalPosition property. If GraphicItem.UseDataGraphicPosition is True, the graphic item is positioned according to the default setting. If UseDataGraphicPosition is False, its horizontal position is determined by the settings of the GraphicItem.HorizontalPosition property.

Note, however, that users can manually re-position a data graphic that was applied to a shape by using the control handle of the data graphic. A position set in this manner takes precedence over the position specified by property settings.

The setting of the HorizontalPosition property corresponds to the setting of the Horizontal list box under Callout position in the New Text (or Edit Text), New Icon Set (or Edit Icon Set), or New Data Bar (or Edit Data Bar) dialog box, depending on the type of the graphic item, in the Microsoft Visio user interface (UI). However, this is the case only if Use default position is cleared.

The following possible values for the HorizontalPosition property are from the VisGraphicPositionHorizontal enumeration, which is declared in the Visio type library.
