For example, I may wish to have a form that contains text boxes which contain text destined for a Customer Property. I would like to spell check that text box BEFORE adding it to the custom property. Thanks for your suggestions. Regards, Colin.

Add shapes and change their color at the same time through VBA

Postby consulttech2004 » Sat, 19 Jan 2008 05:24:09 GMT

I want to use the ShapeAdded event so that when I add a shape from an
electrical stencil, the shape turns red (or green, or blue, or
whatever) so that it stands out from the rest of my drawing.  Any
ideas on how to do this consistantly through VBA?  Thanks in advance.

Hello David,

For events, checkout this link:

 http://www.**--****.com/ (office.10).aspx (DVS - 
Handling Visio Events)

For the change of fill colour, you can use the macro recorder (Tools / Macro 
/ Record new macro...) to record the code as you make the changes manually 
in the UI, which you can then integrate into you final solution.

Are you sure, by the way, that you can't achieve what you're after just 
using the ShapeSheet?  On what basis do you want the colour to change?

Best regards

John

2.Change color of shape

I'm aware about reports that the Visio 2003 .NET/C# SDK will be
released somewhere Q1-2004. However I'm hoping that somebody can give
me a hint beforehand how to achieve to change the color of a shape
programmatically.

I got it working to find the selected Visio shape. And I can change
the text, however I don't have the slightest idea how to change the
color of the shape.

Maybe through SetFormula() but I don't understand what the arguments
are

//this works:
this.selectedShape.Text = visio_term + " exists";

//but what is SRCStream and formulaArray?
this.selectedShape.SetFormulas(ref SRCStream, ref formulaArray, 0);

The documentation does not reveal more then

public abstract new System.Int16 SetFormulas ( System.Array
SRCStream , System.Array formulaArray , System.Int16 Flags )
Member of Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio.IVShape

Any one has a clue?

3.Change fill color of shape through code

I have been making my own master shapes.  I note that I can change the
fill color of some master shapes through code using the following
logic:

Shape.FillStyle = "red"

Or whatever I have defined my style to be.  It works pretty well for
our purposes.  The problem is that some master shapes don't seem to
have a fill color, and some that I have drawn (all of them, in fact)
don't seem to want to change color through VBA no matter what I do.
Is there something I'm missing?  Thanks in advance,

David

4.Change shape background color on a visio stencil

Hello,

does somebody know how to change the background color of a shape already 
inserted to a stencil?

The problem is that I have to use a transparent image. When I drop it to the 
stencil, the background is transparent and the image quality is really bad 
(unrecognizable). If the background color of the image is white, the icon has 
a good quality and is recognizable.

Thanks, udo

5.How to Change Color of a Group of Shapes

Hi, Gurus,

I have a Visio program.   I created a group of line shapes.  I want to

VBA?

Thanks so much in advance.
