Return Value



If your Visual Studio solution includes the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio reference, this property maps to the following types:

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio.IVPage.Shapes


This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the Shapes property to get the Shapes collection. It prints the names of all shapes on Page1 in the Immediate window.

To run this macro, make sure the active document has shapes on Page1.

Public Sub Shapes_Example()  

    Dim intCounter As Integer 
    Dim intShapeCount As Integer 
    Dim vsoShapes As Visio.Shapes  

    Set vsoShapes = ActiveDocument.Pages.Item(1).Shapes  

    Debug.Print "Shapes in document: "; ActiveDocument.Name 
    Debug.Print "On page: "; ActiveDocument.Pages.Item(1).Name  

    intShapeCount = vsoShapes.Count  

    If intShapeCount > 0 Then 
        For intCounter = 1 To intShapeCount  
            Debug.Print " "; vsoShapes.Item(intCounter).Name  
        Next intCounter 

        Debug.Print "No Shapes On Page"  
    End If   

End Sub
