Element information


Connection elements can be indexed or named (assigned a Name, NameU, or ID attribute). By default, if the user does not name the connections for a shape, they are assigned index attributes.

If one Connection element is named for a shape, all the Connection elements must be named for that shape. However, Connection elements do not need to be named using the same attribute.
