ApplicationSettings.SnapStrengthGuidesX Property (Visio)

Published: July 16, 2012

Specifies the distance in pixels along the x-axis that guides pull when snapping is enabled. Read/write.

Version Added: Visio 2003

expression .SnapStrengthGuidesX

expression A variable that represents an ApplicationSettings object.

Return Value


Setting the SnapStrengthGuidesX property is equivalent to setting the Guides option under Snap strength on the Advanced tab in the Snap & Glue dialog box (click the Visual Aids arrow on the View tab). Setting snap strength in the UI sets both x and y values to the same value.

The minimum allowable value for the SnapStrengthGuidesX property is 0 (zero), and the maximum is 999. Attempting to set a value outside that range returns an error. The default value is 10.

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the SnapStrengthGuidesX property to print the current snap strength guides x-axis setting in the Immediate window. It also shows how to get an ApplicationSettings object from the Visio Application object.

Public Sub SnapStrengthGuidesX_Example() 
 Dim vsoApplicationSettings As Visio.ApplicationSettings 
 Dim lngSnapStrength As Long 
 Set vsoApplicationSettings = Visio.Application.Settings 
 lngSnapStrength = vsoApplicationSettings.SnapStrengthGuidesX 
 Debug.Print lngSnapStrength 
End Sub
