Version added



This example shows how to use the Top property to set the position of a UIObject object. The example adds a custom toolbar to the cloned toolbars collection. This toolbar appears in the Microsoft Office Visio user interface and is available while the document is active.

To restore Visio's built-in toolbars after you run this macro, call the ThisDocument.ClearCustomToolbars method.

Public Sub Top_Example() 

    Dim vsoUIObject As Visio.UIObject 
    Dim vsoToolbars As Visio.Toolbars 
    Dim vsoToolbar As Visio.Toolbar 

    'Check whether there are document custom toolbars. 
    If ThisDocument.CustomToolbars Is Nothing Then

        'If not, check whether there are application custom toolbars. 
        If Visio.Application.CustomToolbars Is Nothing Then

            'If not, use the built-in toolbars. 
            Set vsoUIObject = Visio.Application.BuiltInToolbars(0) 


            'If there are application custom toolbars, clone them. 
            Set vsoUIObject = Visio.Application.CustomToolbars.Clone
        End If  


        'If there are custom toolbars in the document, use them. 
        Set vsoUIObject = ThisDocument.CustomToolbars
    End If  

    'Get the Toolbars collection for the drawing window context. 
    Set vsoToolbars = vsoUIObject.ToolbarSets.ItemAtID( _ 

    'Add a toolbar to the collection. 
    Set vsoToolbar = vsoToolbars.Add 
    With vsoToolbar 

        'Set the title of the toolbar. 
        .Caption = "My New Toolbar" 

        'Float the toolbar at coordinates (300,200). 
        .Position = Visio.visBarFloating 
        .Left = 300 
        .Top = 200 

    End With  

        'Use the custom toolbars in this document. 
        ThisDocument.SetCustomToolbars vsoUIObject
