Callout Property

Office 2003

Returns a CalloutFormat object that contains callout formatting properties for the specified shape. Applies to Shape or ShapeRange objects that represent line callouts. Read-only.


This example adds to myDocument an oval and a callout that points to the oval. The callout text won't have a border, but it will have a vertical accent bar that separates the text from the callout line.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)
With myDocument.Shapes
    .AddShape msoShapeOval, 180, 200, 280, 130
    With .AddCallout(msoCalloutTwo, 420, 170, 170, 40)
        .TextFrame.TextRange.Text = "My oval"
        With .Callout
            .Accent = True
            .Border = False
        End With
    End With
