Shape.CellsSRC Property

Office 2007
Returns a Cell object that represents a ShapeSheet cell identified by section, row, and column indices. Read-only.

Version Information
 Version Added:  Visio 2.0

Syntax

expression.CellsSRC(Section, Row, Column)

expression   A variable that represents a Shape object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
SectionRequiredIntegerThe cell's section index.
RowRequiredIntegerThe cell's row index.
ColumnRequiredIntegerThe cell's column index.

Return Value
Cell

Remarks

To access any shape formula by its section, row, and column indices, use the CellsSRC property. Constants for section, row, and column indices are declared by the Visio type library as members of VisSectionIndices, VisRowIndices, and VisCellIndices, respectively.

The CellsSRC property might raise an exception if index values for section, row, and column do not identify an actual cell, depending on the section. However, even if no exception is raised, subsequent methods invoked on the returned object fail. You can determine if a cell with particular index values exists by using the CellsSRCExists property.

The CellsSRC property is typically used to iterate through the cells in a section or row. To retrieve a single cell, use the Cells property and specify a cell name. For example:

Visual Basic for Applications
Set vsoCell = Cells("PinX")

Example

The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the CellsSRC property to set a particular ShapeSheet cell by its section, row, and column indices. It draws a rectangle on a page and bows, or curves the lines of the rectangle by changing the shape's lines to arcs. The macro then draws an inner rectangle within the bowed lines of the first rectangle.
