ConnectorFormat.EndConnect Method 

Attaches the end of the specified connector to a specified shape.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel (in

Dim ConnectedShape As Shape
Dim ConnectionSite As Integer
Dim connectorFormat1 As ConnectorFormat
connectorFormat1.EndConnect(ConnectedShape, ConnectionSite)

void EndConnect(
	[In] Shape ConnectedShape, 
	[In] int ConnectionSite
public void EndConnect(
	/*in*/Shape ConnectedShape, 
	/*in*/int ConnectionSite
function EndConnect(
	 ConnectedShape : Shape, 
	 ConnectionSite : int



Required Shape object. The shape to attach the end of the connector to. The specified Shape object must be in the same Shapes collection as the connector.


Required Integer. A connection site on the shape specified by ConnectedShape. Must be an integer between 1 and the integer returned by the ConnectionSiteCount property of the specified shape. If you want the connector to automatically find the shortest path between the two shapes it connects, specify any valid integer for this argument and then use the RerouteConnections method after the connector is attached to shapes at both ends.

If there’s already a connection between the end of the connector and another shape, that connection is broken. If the end of the connector isn’t already positioned at the specified connecting site, this method moves the end of the connector to the connecting site and adjusts the size and position of the connector. Use the BeginConnect method to attach the beginning of the connector to a shape.

When you attach a connector to an object, the size and position of the connector are automatically adjusted if necessary.
