SortKey Cell (Actions Section)

A number that determines the order of actions that appear on a shortcut or action tag menu.


In previous versions of Microsoft Visio, action tags are called smart tags.

The actions on an action tag or shortcut menu appear on the menu sorted from lowest to highest, with lower numbers appearing at the top of the menu. If two action rows have the same SortKey cell value, the order is determined by physical row order. The default is 0 (zero).

To get a reference to the SortKey cell by name from another formula, or from a program by using the CellsU property, use:

To get a reference to the SortKey cell by index from a program, use the CellsSRC property with the following arguments:
