Type

Description

Contains rows that list the coordinates of the vertices for the lines and arcs that make up the shape.

### Child elements

Note

The Cell element is the only child of this element. Depending on the "T" attribute of this element, the meaning of the Cell elements differ. In the table below, parathetical text in the element name corresponds to the "T" value to which the topic applies.

Specifies the unique language-dependent name of the row.

Values of the xsd:string type.

N

xsd:string

optional

Specifies the unique language-independent name of the row.The N attribute is only used for the User, Property, Actions, Control, Connection, Hyperlink, and ActionTag sections. A row can only have one of the IX or N attributes.

Values of the xsd:string type.

T

xsd:string

optional
