Paths Object (Visio)

Includes a Path object for each Geometry section for a group or shape.

Version Added: Visio 5.0

To retrieve a Paths collection expressed in the shape's parent coordinate system, use the Paths property of the shape. The coordinates are expressed in internal drawing units (inches).

The default property of a Paths collection is Item.

To retrieve a Paths collection expressed in the shape's local coordinate system, use the PathsLocal property of the shape. The coordinates are expressed in internal drawing units (inches).

If a Shape object is a page, foreign object, or guide, its Paths and PathsLocal properties don't contain any items.

If a Shape object is a group, its Paths and PathsLocal properties are the union of the paths of its component shapes.

If a Shape object is a shape, its Paths and PathsLocal properties include one item for each Geometry section that defines a stroke of positive length.
