GroupShapes Collection Object (Word)

Represents the individual shapes within a grouped shape. Each shape contained within a group of shapes is represented by a Shape object.

Use the GroupItems property to return the GroupShapes collection. Use GroupItems(Index), where Index is the number of the individual shape within the grouped shape, to return a single shape from the GroupShapes collection. The following example adds three triangles to the active document, groups them, sets a color for the entire group, and then changes the color for the second triangle only.

With ActiveDocument.Shapes 
 .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, _ 
 10, 10, 100, 100).Name = "shpOne" 
 .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, _ 
 150, 10, 100, 100).Name = "shpTwo" 
 .AddShape(msoShapeIsoscelesTriangle, _ 
 300, 10, 100, 100).Name = "shpThree" 
 With .Range(Array("shpOne", "shpTwo", "shpThree")).Group 
 .Fill.PresetTextured msoTextureBlueTissuePaper 
 .GroupItems(2).Fill.PresetTextured msoTextureGreenMarble 
 End With 
End With
