This property is the equivalent of checking the Styles, Shapes, Preview, Backgrounds, and Master shapes boxes in the Protect Document dialog box (in the Drawing Explorer, right-click the drawing name, and then click Protect Document).

The value of the Protection property can be a combination of the following VisProtection constants.
