Syntax

expression A variable that represents a Document object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
bstrPasswordOptionalVariantNot used.

Return Value

VisProtection

Remarks

Beginning with Microsoft Office Visio 2003, the Protection property ignores the bstrPassword argument both when you get and when you set the value of the property.

This property is the equivalent of checking the Styles, Shapes, Preview, Backgrounds, and Master shapes boxes in the Protect Document dialog box (in the Drawing Explorer, right-click the drawing name, and then click Protect Document).

The value of the Protection property can be a combination of the following VisProtection constants.

**Constant ****Value **
visProtectNone&;H0
visProtectStyles&;H1
visProtectShapes&;H2
visProtectMasters&;H4
visProtectBackgrounds&;H8
visProtectPreviews&;H10
