Represents the border of an object.

Most bordered objects have a border that is treated as a single entity, regardless of how many sides it has. The entire border must be returned as a unit. To return a Border object, use the Border property for the particular bordered object (for example, the Border property of a TrendLine object).

Note Note

Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.

The following example changes the type and line style of a trendline on the active chart.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1).Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Trendlines(1)

    .Type = xlLinear

    .Border.LineStyle = xlDash

End With
