Shapes.Range Method

Returns a ShapeRange object.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in microsoft.office.interop.word.dll)

Dim Index As Object
Dim returnValue As ShapeRange
Dim shapes1 As Shapes
returnValue = shapes1.Range(Index)

ShapeRange Range(
	[In] ref object Index
public ShapeRange Range(
	/*in*/System.Object Index
function Range(
	 Index : Object
) : ShapeRange;



Required Object. Specifies which shapes are to be included in the specified range. Can be an integer that specifies the index number of a shape within the Shapes collection, a string that specifies the name of a shape, or an Object array that contains integers or strings.

Character position values begin with 0 (zero) at the beginning of the document. All characters are counted, including nonprinting characters. Hidden characters are counted even if they're not displayed. If you don't specify starting and ending character positions for the Range method, the entire document is returned as a Range object.

ShapeRange objects don't include InlineShape objects. An InlineShape object is equivalent to a character and is positioned as a character within a range of text. Shape objects are anchored to a range of text (the selection, by default), but they can be positioned anywhere on the page. A Shape object will always appear on the same page as the range it's anchored to.

Most operations that you can do with a Shape object you can also do with a ShapeRange object that contains a single shape. Some operations, when performed on a ShapeRange object that contains multiple shapes, produce an error.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
