Data3 Property [Visio 2003 SDK Documentation]
Gets or sets the value of the Data3 field for a Shape object.
strRet = object.Data3
object.Data3 = stringExpression
strRet String. The current value of the field.
object Required. An expression that returns a Shape object.
stringExpression Required String. The new value for the field.
Use the Data3 property to supply additional information about a shape. The property can contain up to 64 KB of characters. Text controls should be used with care with a string that is greater than 3,000 characters.
Setting the Data3 property is equivalent to entering information in the Data 3 box in the Special dialog box (Format menu).
This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to set a shape's Data1, Data2, and Data3 fields. It prints the values of these fields in the Immediate window. You can also verify that these values have been set by opening the Special dialog box.
