Shapes object (Visio)

Includes a Shape object for each basic shape, group, guide, or object from another application (linked or embedded in Microsoft Visio) on a drawing page, master, or group.


To retrieve a Shapes collection, use the Shapes property of a Page, Master, or Shape object.

The default property of a Shapes collection is Item.

The order of items in a Shapes collection corresponds to the stacking (drawing) order of the shapes.

If your Visual Studio solution includes the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio reference, this collection maps to the following types:

  • Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio.IVShapes
