ButtonFace Cell (Actions Section)

Identifies the icon that appears next to an item on a shortcut or action tag menu.


In previous versions of Microsoft Visio, action tags are called smart tags.

The string contained in the ButtonFace cell represents the ID of a Microsoft Office button face image. A value of zero (0) or blank means no icon appears.

The IDs that can be used in the ButtonFace cell are the same as the IDs used with the FaceID property of a CommandBarButton object. For more details about these IDs, search for "working with command bar button images" on MSDN.
