Flags must be one of the following VisValidationFlags constants.

ConstantValueDescription

If you do not set the optional Flags parameter, Microsoft Visio applies the default behavior ( visValidationDefault ).

When you call the Validate method, Microsoft Visio checks whether the rule set is active before evaluating it. Visio does not display message boxes during the evalution, except to notify you if, when Flags is set to visValidationDefault , it finds no errors; and it displays the progress bar only if Application.ShowProgressBars is True .

Example

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example shows how to use the Validate method to validate the active document.

' Validate the document.
Call Visio.ActiveDocument.Validation.Validate(,Visio.VisValidationFlags.visValidationDefault)
