LeaderLines Object (Excel)

Published: July 16, 2012

Represents leader lines on a chart. Leader lines connect data labels to data points.

This object isn’t a collection; there’s no object that represents a single leader line.

This object applies only to pie charts.

Use the LeaderLines property to return the LeaderLines object. The following example adds data labels and blue leader lines to series one on chart one. If no leader lines are visible this example code will fail. In this situation, you can manually drag one of the data labels away from the pie chart to make a leader line show up.

With Worksheets(1).ChartObjects(1).Chart.SeriesCollection(1) 
 .HasDataLabels = True 
 .DataLabels.Position = xlLabelPositionBestFit 
 .HasLeaderLines = True 
 .LeaderLines.Border.ColorIndex = 5 
End With
