[ API set: 1.1 ]

Extends
OfficeExtension.ClientObject

Properties

context

The request context associated with the object. This connects the add-in's process to the Office host application's process.

shapes

Gets the Shapes of the Selection. Read-only.

[ API set: 1.1 ]

Methods

load(propertyNames)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNamesAndPaths)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

toJSON()

Overrides the JavaScript toJSON() method in order to provide more useful output when an API object is passed to JSON.stringify(). (JSON.stringify, in turn, calls the toJSON method of the object that is passed to it.) Whereas the original Visio.Selection object is an API object, the toJSON method returns a plain JavaScript object (typed as Visio.Interfaces.SelectionData) that contains shallow copies of any loaded child properties from the original object.
