public interface ShapeRange : IEnumerable

You can include whichever shapes you want — chosen from among all the shapes on the document or all the shapes in the selection — to construct a shape range. For example, you could construct a ShapeRange collection that contains the first three shapes on a document, all the selected shapes on a document, or all the freeforms on a document.

For an overview of how to work with either a single shape or with more than one shape at a time, see How to: Work with Shapes (Drawing Objects).

The following examples describe how to:

  • Return a set of shapes you specify by name or index number.

  • Return all or some of the selected shapes on a document.
