Filling a wireframe shape with a content shape

Mike Brown 1 Reputation point

Hi All,
I am looking at planning for a content management system for video walls. I need to show the users what layouts (templates) are available to them and then what content they want in each frame of the layout.

I have created a bunch of wireframe templates (Using the Container shape in Web Containers) that are available to me (1-9 frames per 1920x1080 screen).

I would like to create content shapes (DataLink images, Datalink Video, etc....)

When I drag the content shape into a wireframe I would like the content shape to fill the wireframe container and display data (Name, link address, username, description, etc...) associated to that shape.

I have attached a sample image, the left wireframe shows the content shape dragged onto the wireframe container. The right image shows what I would like to happen (without the associated data shown).

I hope this makes sense, I searched help but am not sure what to search for.


Thanking you in advance

Mike Brown

    I think you may try to add data to Visio shapes via fields.

    Thanks @Emily Hua-MSFT , I can add the data to the shape easily, it is getting the shape to automatically fill the container that I am struggling with.
