Pulling data from a connected shape
« on: May 03, 2011, 12:56:51 PM »
I've got a number of shapes that will have Shape Data assigned ID numbers and be connected to each other.  The connections represent wiring whose labeling needs to have source and destination information, essentially just a concatenation of the ids on either end of the connection.  Pretty much every reference I've seen to pulling connected shape data requires VBA code.  I'm trying to learn as much as I can about Visio and the ShapeSheet, but VBA is a little beyond my time and ability right now.

In an older post I found (http://visguy.com/vgforum/index.php?topic=1156.0) Chris mentions advancements in the upcoming 2010 making things easier and I'm wondering if anything like that has made it in the 2010 version.  I can do the shape to shape references for pulling data, I just need to have some way to dynamically change the reference to what shape is connected.
