Return Value


If your Visual Studio solution includes the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio reference, this property maps to the following types:

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio.IVPage.Shapes

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the Shapes property to get the Shapes collection. It prints the names of all shapes on Page1 in the Immediate window.

To run this macro, make sure the active document has shapes on Page1.

Public Sub Shapes_Example()  
    Dim intCounter As Integer 
    Dim intShapeCount As Integer 
    Dim vsoShapes As Visio.Shapes  
    Set vsoShapes = ActiveDocument.Pages.Item(1).Shapes  
    Debug.Print "Shapes in document: "; ActiveDocument.Name 
    Debug.Print "On page: "; ActiveDocument.Pages.Item(1).Name  
    intShapeCount = vsoShapes.Count  
    If intShapeCount > 0 Then 
        For intCounter = 1 To intShapeCount  
            Debug.Print " "; vsoShapes.Item(intCounter).Name  
        Next intCounter 
        Debug.Print "No Shapes On Page"  
    End If   
End Sub
