Shape.RerouteConnections Method 

Reroutes connectors so that they take the shortest possible path between the shapes they connect.

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

Dim shape1 As Shape

void RerouteConnections();
public void RerouteConnections();
function RerouteConnections();

To use the shortest path, the RerouteConnections method may detach the ends of a connector and reattach them to different connecting sites on the connected shapes. This method reroutes all connectors attached to the specified shape; if the specified shape is a connector, it’s rerouted.

If this method is applied to a connector, only that connector will be rerouted. If this method is applied to a connected shape, all connectors to that shape will be rerouted.
