Occurs when a container relationship is deleted from the document.

Private Sub expression _ContainerRelationshipDeleted(By Val ShapePair As RelatedShapePairEvent)

expression A variable that represents a Pages object.




Data Type





An object that represents the container shape-pair relationship.

The RelatedShapePairEvent object that this event returns contains two shapes: the container and the member, represented by the RelatedShapePairEvent.FromShapeID and the RelatedShapePairEvent.ToShapeID properties respectively. When Microsoft Visio deletes both shapes in the container relationship simultaneously, for example when both shapes are deleted from a drawing as part of a selection, the event does not fire.

If you are using Microsoft Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), the syntax in this topic describes a common, efficient way to handle events.

If you want to create your own Event objects, use the EventList.Add or EventList.AddAdvise method. To create an Event object that runs an add-on, use the EventList.Add method. To create an Event object that receives notification, use the EventList.AddAdvise method. To find an event code for the event you want to create, see Event Codes.
