Return Value



The active window can be one of the following window types: Drawing, Stencil, ShapeSheet, Edit Icon, or a Drawing or Stencil window created by an add-on. The application's active window can only be an MDI frame window—it cannot be one of the floating, docked, or anchored windows. For a complete list of window types, see the Type property.

If a window in an instance of Microsoft Visio is not active, the ActiveWindow property returns Nothing .


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to get the active window without qualification from the Visio global object, which is automatically available to VBA code that is part of the VBA project of a Visio document.

Public Sub ActiveWindow_Example() 

 Dim vsoWindow As Visio.Window 

 'Get the active window. 
 Set vsoWindow = ActiveWindow 

 'To verify that we got the active window, print its caption. 
 Debug.Print vsoWindow.Caption 

End Sub
