Shape.IsInline Property

Office 2007
Returns an MsoTriState constant that specifies whether a shape is inline (contained in a text run). Read-only.



expression   A variable that represents a Shape object.


This example tests the first shape (a text frame) on the first page of the publication to see if it is inline. If it is not, a search is done within that shape to find any inline shapes within the text frame. Any inline shapes that are found have the ForeColor property set to red.

Dim theShape As Shape
Dim i As Integer

Set theShape = ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes(1)

If Not theShape.IsInline = True Then
    With theShape.TextFrame.Story.TextRange
        If .InlineShapes.Count > 0 Then
            For i = 1 To .InlineShapes.Count
                .InlineShapes(i).Fill.ForeColor.RGB = vbRed
        End If
    End With
