SetSegmentType Method

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

Sets the segment type of the segment that follows the node specified by Index. If the node is a control point for a curved segment, this method sets the segment type for that curve. Note that this may affect the total number of nodes by inserting or deleting adjacent nodes.

expression.SetSegmentType(Index, SegmentType)

expression   Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

Index  Required Integer. The node whose segment type is to be set.


This example changes all straight segments to curved segments in shape three on myDocument. Shape three must be a freeform drawing.

Set myDocument = Worksheets(1)
With myDocument.Shapes(3).Nodes
    n = 1
    While n <= .Count
        If .Item(n).SegmentType = msoSegmentLine Then
            .SetSegmentType n, msoSegmentCurve
        End If
        n = n + 1
End With
