Returns the page sheet (an object that represents the ShapeSheet spreadsheet) of a master. Read-only.


expression . PageSheet

expression A variable that represents a Master object.

Return Value



Every master contains a tree of Shape objects. Constants representing shape types are prefixed with visType and are declared by the Visio type library in VisShapeTypes .

In the tree of shapes of a master, there is exactly one shape of type visTypePage . This shape is always the root shape in the tree, and the PageSheet property returns this shape.

The page sheet contains important settings for the master such as its size and scale. It also contains the Layers section that defines the layers for that master.

Assuming that there is at least one shape on the page, you can use the following macro to get a master's page shape:

Sub MasterPageSheet_Example() 

 Dim vsoShape As Visio.Shape 
 Dim vsoShapes As Visio.Shapes 
 Dim vsoMaster As Visio.Master 
 Set vsoMaster = ActiveDocument.Masters.Item(1) 
 Set vsoShapes = vsoMaster.Shapes 
 Set vsoShape = vsoShapes("ThePage") 

End Sub
