CalloutFormat Object

Office 2007
Contains properties and methods that apply to line callouts.


Use the Callout property to return a CalloutFormat object. The following example specify the following attributes of shape three (a line callout) on myDocument:

  • The callout will have a vertical accent bar that separates the text from the callout line.
  • The angle between the callout line and the side of the callout text box will be 30 degrees.
  • There will be no border around the callout text.
  • The callout line will be attached to the top of the callout text box.
  • The callout line will contain two segments.

For this example to work, shape three must be a callout.

Visual Basic for Applications

    .Accent = True
    .Angle = msoCalloutAngle30
    .Border = False
    .PresetDrop msoCalloutDropTop
    .Type = msoCalloutThree
End With
