CalloutFormat Object (Word)

Published: July 16, 2012

Contains properties and methods that apply to line callouts.

Use the Callout property to return a CalloutFormat object. The following example specifies the following attributes of shape three (a line callout) on the active document: the callout will have a vertical accent bar that separates the text from the callout line; the angle between the callout line and the side of the callout text box will be 30 degrees; there will be no border around the callout text; the callout line will be attached to the top of the callout text box; and the callout line will contain two segments. For this example to work, shape three must be a callout.

With ActiveDocument.Shapes(3).Callout 
 .Accent = True 
 .Angle = msoCalloutAngle30 
 .Border = False 
 .PresetDrop msoCalloutDropTop 
 .Type = msoCalloutThree 
End With
