Pacman Shape
« on: November 03, 2008, 05:59:55 AM »
A while ago on the microsoft.public.visio.general newsgroup someone asked for a shape that looked like PacMan :-

This is a simplified version of the standard pie-chart shape, I’ve removed everything except the four quadrants. You can

  • rotate the whole shape
  • change the line and fill patterns of each segment individually
  • each quadrant can also be individually moved around the circle to create non-quadrants of other than 90°.

Here's your animated whaka whaka.

You have to allow the VBA to run, then you move the scroll bar control back and forth to get the pac man to move.

This was obviously a VBA experiment, not anything useful :)

Remind me to post the Visio Asteroids one of these days.
