Now it's interesting for you to know, in what direction your connector connects to a given shape.
I tried to explain one way to do this in post #8 above.

Did you use the control points?
The text boxes are attached to them, so you can move them to whereever you need them to be.

Here's a reference (It's V2013, but should be same for V2010:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff768508(v=office.15).aspx.  This lists the various functions available with a brief description of what each does.

There are more google entries if you search for each Visio funciton in question.

yea. Thanks for the Link. My problem is that i have never programed jet. So im looking for samples all over the net but can't find simple ones that i cold follow.
Maybe i have to hire somebody for that.

I can define clearly what i want and what it should do:

I have several grouped shapes as stencils. They all have only one shape with shape-data. The connector is connected from a shape in the group to another group.
What i need is that the connector reads out the shape-data-field "Geraetename" of both sides and displays that name on the other end of the connector.

Does somebody have spare time?

best regards, novski
