expression .SnapStrengthGridX

expression A variable that represents a ApplicationSettings object.

Return Value


Setting the SnapStrengthGridX property is equivalent to setting the Grid option under Snap strength on the Advanced tab in the Snap & Glue dialog box (click the Visual Aids arrow on the View tab). Setting snap strength in the UI sets both x and y values to the same value.

The minimum allowable value for the SnapStrengthGridX property is 0 (zero), and the maximum is 999. Attempting to set a value outside that range returns an error. The default value is 5.

ThisMicrosoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the SnapStrengthGridX property to print the current snap strength grid x-axis setting in the Immediate window. It also shows how to get an ApplicationSettings object from the Visio Application object.

Public Sub SnapStrengthGridX_Example() 
    Dim vsoApplicationSettings As Visio.ApplicationSettings 
    Dim lngSnapStrength As Long 
    Set vsoApplicationSettings = Visio.Application.Settings 
    lngSnapStrength = vsoApplicationSettings.SnapStrengthGridX 
    Debug.Print lngSnapStrength 
End Sub
