Data Type

Description

ConnectorEnd

Required

OffsetX

Required

When you call Disconnect on a connector shape (a 1-D routable shape), one or both endpoints of the connector are unglued from their target shapes, based on the specified ConnectorEnd parameter value. If a specified endpoint is not glued, Microsoft Visio takes no action.

Visio offsets the endpoint(s) from their current position by the amount specified by OffsetX, OffsetY, and Units. Offset values of 0 mean that the endpoints do not move.

The Disconnect method does not apply to non-connector shapes. If you call Disconnect on a non-connector shape or on a shape in a master, Visio returns an Invalid Source error.
