MsoTriState can be one of these MsoTriState constants.
msoCTrue
msoFalse The shadow has no fill and the outline of the shadow is visible through the shape if the shape has no fill.
msoTriStateMixed
msoTriStateToggle
msoTrue The shadow of the specified shape appears filled in and is obscured by the shape, even if the shape has no fill.

Example

This example sets the horizontal and vertical offsets of the shadow for shape three on myDocument. The shadow is offset 5 points to the right of the shape and 3 points above it. If the shape doesn't already have a shadow, this example adds one to it. The shadow will be filled in and obscured by the shape, even if the shape has no fill.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)
With myDocument.Shapes(3).Shadow
    .Visible = True
    .OffsetX = 5
    .OffsetY = -3
    .Obscured = msoTrue
End With
