Data Type

Description

The universal name to assign to the new validation rule set.

Return Value

ValidationRuleSet

If the NameU parameter is not a valid string or if it matches the universal name of an existing rule set in the document, Microsoft Visio returns an Invalid Parameter error.

The default property values of the new validation rule set are as follows: Description = [empty]; Enabled = True; Name = NameU; RuleSetFlags = visRuleSetDefault.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example shows how to use the Add method to add a validation rule set named "Connectivity" to the active document.

Set vsoDocument = Visio.ActiveDocument

' Add a validation rule set to the document.
Set vsoValidationRuleSet = 
vsoDocument.Validation.RuleSets.Add("Connectivity")
