Application Object

Office 2007
Represents an instance of Microsoft Office Visio. An external program typically creates or retrieves an Application object before it can retrieve other Visio objects from that instance. Use the Microsoft Visual Basic CreateObject function or the New keyword to run a new instance, or use the GetObject function to retrieve an instance that is already running. You can also use the CreateObject function with the InvisibleApp object to run a new instance that is invisible. Set the value of the InvisibleApp object's Visible property to True to show it.

Version Information
 Version Added:  Visio 4.1

Remarks

Use the Documents, Windows, and Addons properties of an Application object to retrieve the Document, Window, and Addon collections of the instance.

Use the ActiveDocument, ActivePage, or ActiveWindow property to retrieve the currently active Document, Page, or Window object.

Use the BuiltInMenus, BuiltInToolbars, CustomMenus, CustomToolbars, or CommandBars property to access the Application object's menus and toolbars.

ActiveDocument is the default property of an Application object.

Code in the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications project of a Visio document can use the Visio global object instead of a Visio Application object to retrieve other objects.
