ValueDescription

Do not show the grid when printing this page (the default).

Syntax

<PrintGrid
    [Unit]
    [F]
    [Err]>
</PrintGrid>

Attributes

Unit

Optional string. Represents a unit of measure. The default is BOOL. For details about BOOL, see Units of measure.

F

Optional string. Represents the element's formula. This attribute can contain one of the following strings: "someFormula" if the formula exists locally, "No Formula" if the formula is locally deleted or blocked, or "Inh" if the formula is inherited.

If the attribute is not present, the element's formula is a simple constant. For example, <element>5</element>.

Err

Optional string. Indicates that the formula evaluates to an error. The value of Err is the current value (an error message string); the value of the element is the last valid value.

Remarks

This value corresponds to the Gridlines check box on the Print Setup tab in the Page Setup dialog box (File menu). Other than color (the printed version is gray), the printed grid is identical to the grid you see in the Microsoft Office Visio drawing window.

You can choose whether to print the grid on a page-by-page basis. The style of grid can also be defined on a page-by-page basis in the Ruler & Grid dialog box (Tools menu) when a page is active.

The PrintGrid element is relevant only when contained in a PageSheet element. It is ignored when contained in a DocumentSheet, Shape, or StyleSheet element.
