Path Object (Visio)
Published: July 16, 2012
Represents a sequence of one or more segments whose ends abut. A path describes where a pen would move in order to draw one shape component. Each Path object corresponds to a Geometry section of a shape.
The default property of a Path object is Item.
A Curve object is an item in a Path object that is any linear or curved segment representing a consecutive sequence of rows in the Geometry section that the Path object represents. The number of Curve objects in a Path object is not necessarily the same as the number of rows in its Geometry section.
The Path object is conceptually of zero width. Line weights, patterns, and ends are ignored, but corner rounding is included. A Path object may or may not be closed, and it may intersect itself. For example, a Path object may describe a figure eight.
If you retrieve a Path object from a collection obtained by the Paths property of a shape, its coordinates are expressed in the shape's parent coordinate system. If you retrieve a Path object from a collection obtained by the PathsLocal property of a shape, its coordinates are expressed in the shape's local coordinate system. In both cases, coordinates are expressed in internal drawing units (inches).
