General Visio / Re: Flip the flow chart
« Last post by awa123 on June 20, 2021, 12:09:02 PM »
thanks for your feedback

indeed i always prefers to work without glued connexions to be more flexible when i move the shapes...

Nevertheless i 've made a try to flip a glued shape (cf attached file please) and it is still not a real symmetrical flip, is there an explanation to it ?

thanks

Not good.
Many of your lines aren't glued. It helps if you have glueing enabled.

Programming & Code / Re: Opinion, VB.Net or C#

Quite a bit of food for thought! Thank you for all of the insight.  I agree sorting (in my case dictionaries of parts by tag, part # etc. for bill of materials tables) has driven me bananas.

I guess my only gripe is a bit of added dev time with the compiling, firing up Visio, and testing/debugging loop, but i have found VS 19's syntax and runtime checking saves a great deal of bugs from happening.

I do like the flow and control of C#, it just feels weird having to type cast things so much such as all the (short) type casting, and accessing shape info as structs.

Takes getting used to but long term I may just go all in with C#, and keep prototype in VBA.

Thanks again!

General Visio / Re: Line ends (asymmetrical)

I assume you're relatively new to Visio.  Be that as it may, as the old proverb goes, "There's more than one way to..."

Anyway, I think I may have thrown together a shape that accomplishes what you're after.  By right-clicking on the shape, you can "adjust" the type of arrow on either or both ends of the line.  Give it a try...

Edit:  BTW, I've set the "Fill" Color to be the same as the Line Color...

Edit #2:  I've added a second shape that uses a different approach, and has more options.

Have you tried the Data report wizard (whatever it's called)?

wapperdude, I would summarize this as "no, it's not possible"  ;D

Well, certainly not an Easy Button solution.  Admittedly, I haven't looked further than just going thru scenarios, but I think a manageable, custom solution is possible. 

> adding a cell to a shape if not existing, reading and writing to said cell, comparing its contents...all straight forward.
> looping thru shapes on a stencil and looping thru stencils in document...I believe that's possible
> either auto- / manual triggering certainly doable
> creating efficient, clever search algorithm...challenging
> creating a database reference...could be Excel file

I agree, there is nothing existing to solve the problem.  But, the problem is solvable.  Is it worth the effort?  How's that for splitting hairs??? 😁
