Shape creation - Connection ports


P

Pradeep

I am trying to create shapes using shape studio. I need to create a shape
which has 4 connection ports. I want to know whether it is possible to create
a shape having two types of connection ports: Input port and output port.
Is it possible to identify which port is input port and which one is an
output port in a shape.

There might be two idea.
1st, you could give name to the connection point on the shapesheet. any VBA
program might show which it is.
2nd, you would add control points exactly on each connection point, and
write "Input" or "Output" in the tip-cell . If you place mouse cursol on a
control point, the word would appear after 1 second.

It is on shapesheet might not be on the shapestudio. at connection points
section you could see rows. rows' title might be blank, if you click the
blank, and enter name in the line at the top of visio window, and fix the
work pressing enter key. now the tile cell might has name like a
"connections.input". these name can be read with row.name property, name like
a "Input".
