Represents the individual shapes within a grouped shape. Each shape is represented by a Shape object. Using the Item method with this object, you can work with single shapes within a group without having to ungroup them.

Example

Use the GroupItems property to return a GroupShapes collection. Use GroupItems (index), where index is the number of the individual shape within the grouped shape, to return a single shape from the GroupShapes collection. The following example adds three triangles to the active document, groups them, sets a color for the entire group, and then changes the color for the third triangle only.

Sub WorkWithGroupShapes() 
 With ActiveDocument.Pages.Add(Count:=1, After:=1).Shapes 
 .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, _ 
 50, 50, 100, 100).Name = "shpOne" 
 .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, _ 
 200, 50, 100, 100).Name = "shpTwo" 
 .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, _ 
 350, 50, 100, 100).Name = "shpThree" 
 With .Range(Array("shpOne", "shpTwo", "shpThree")).Group 
 .Fill.PresetTextured PresetTexture:=msoTextureBlueTissuePaper 
 .GroupItems(3).Fill.PresetTextured _ 
 PresetTexture:=msoTextureGreenMarble 
 End With 
 End With 
End Sub
