SetEditingType Method

Office 2003

Sets the editing type of the node specified by Index. If the node is a control point for a curved segment, this method sets the editing type of the node adjacent to it that joins two segments. Note that, depending on the editing type, this method may affect the position of adjacent nodes.

expression.SetEditingType(Index, EditingType)

expression    Required. An expression that returns a ShapeNodes object.

Index    Required Long. The node whose editing type is to be set.

MsoEditingType can be one of these MsoEditingType constants.


This example changes all corner nodes to smooth nodes in shape three on myDocument. Shape three must be a freeform drawing.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)
With myDocument.Shapes(3).Nodes
    For n = 1 to .Count
        If .Item(n).EditingType = msoEditingCorner Then
            .SetEditingType n, msoEditingSmooth
        End If
End With
