LineFormat Object

Office 2007
Represents line and arrowhead formatting. For a line, the LineFormat object contains formatting information for the line itself; for a shape with a border, this object contains formatting information for the shape's border.

Example

Use the Line property to return a LineFormat object. The following example adds a blue, dashed line to myDocument. There's a short, narrow oval at the line's starting point and a long, wide triangle at its endpoint.

Visual Basic for Applications
Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)
With myDocument.Shapes.AddLine(100, 100, 200, 300).Line
    .DashStyle = msoLineDashDotDot
    .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(50, 0, 128)
    .BeginArrowheadLength = msoArrowheadShort
    .BeginArrowheadStyle = msoArrowheadOval
    .BeginArrowheadWidth = msoArrowheadNarrow
    .EndArrowheadLength = msoArrowheadLong
    .EndArrowheadStyle = msoArrowheadTriangle
    .EndArrowheadWidth = msoArrowheadWide
End With
