Title: Getting Shape Data for Connected Shapes
Post by: OldSchool1948 on October 26, 2017, 03:20:45 PM
I need to cycle through each connector on a page and extract Shape Data from an individual shape or shapes in a container.  Extracting the Shape Data is a piece of cake  :).

I can identify the connected shapes:

Con ID        Con Text      Glued Shapes
 489          4             Sheet.42 - 0 > Sheet.222 - 0
 235          18            Container.319 - 4 > Cloud App Server Sngl.324
 10           13            Sheet.58 - 0 > Sheet.222 - 0
 11           7             Availability Group - 1 > Cloud App Server Sngl.289
 12           8             Container.272 - 3 > Cloud App Server Sngl.278
 13           6             Container.272 - 7 > Availability Group - 0


Is there a way to use a connector's 1-D Endpoints info to get a their respective glued shape's IDs, or is there some other way to achieve the same end?

Thanks for any advice.

The 2nd entry has more discussion to go with it.

My diagrams can have one or more connections to individual shapes and containers.  Since it's so easy to get the connects collections, I figured that would be the way to. 

Thanks.  I'll look at ConnectedShapes again.
