expression .BeginConnectedShape

expression A variable that represents a ConnectorFormat object.

This example assumes that myDocument already contains two shapes attached by a connector named "Conn1To2." The code adds a rectangle and a connector to myDocument. The beginning of the new connector will be attached to the same connection site as the beginning of the connector named "Conn1To2," and the end of the new connector will be attached to connection site one on the new rectangle.

Set myDocument = Worksheets(1) 
With myDocument.Shapes 
 Set r3 = .AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 450, 190, 200, 100) 
 .AddConnector(msoConnectorCurve, 0, 0, 10, 10).Name = _ 
 "Conn1To3" 
 With .Item("Conn1To2").ConnectorFormat 
 beginConnSite1 = .BeginConnectionSite 
 Set beginConnShape1 = .BeginConnectedShape 
 End With 
 With .Item("Conn1To3").ConnectorFormat 
 .BeginConnect beginConnShape1, beginConnSite1 
 .EndConnect r3, 1 
 End With 
End With
