Returns the coordinates of the specified freeform drawing's vertices (and control points for B?zier curves) as a series of coordinate pairs. Read-only.

Syntax

expression. Vertices

expression A variable that represents a ShapeRange object.

Return Value

Variant

Remarks

You can use the array returned by this property as an argument to the AddCurve method or AddPolyline method.

The following table shows how the Vertices property associates the values in the array vertArray() with the coordinates of a triangle's vertices.

VertArray elementContains
VertArray(1, 1)The horizontal distance from the first vertex to the left side of the slide
VertArray(1, 2)The vertical distance from the first vertex to the top of the slide
VertArray(2, 1)The horizontal distance from the second vertex to the left side of the slide
VertArray(2, 2)The vertical distance from the second vertex to the top of the slide
VertArray(3, 1)The horizontal distance from the third vertex to the left side of the slide
VertArray(3, 2)The vertical distance from the third vertex to the top of the slide

Example

This example assigns the vertex coordinates for shape one on myDocument to the array variable vertArray() and displays the coordinates for the first vertex.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes(1)

    vertArray = .Vertices

    x1 = vertArray(1, 1)

    y1 = vertArray(1, 2)

    MsgBox "First vertex coordinates: " &; x1 &; ", " &; y1

End With

This example creates a curve that has the same geometric description as shape one on myDocument. Shape one must contain 3 n +1 vertices for this example to succeed.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes

    .AddCurve .Item(1).Vertices

End With
