CalloutFormat.Length Property (PowerPoint)

When the AutoLength property of the specified callout is set to False, the Length property returns the length (in points) of the first segment of the callout line (the segment attached to the text callout box). Read-only.


expression. Length

expression A variable that represents a CalloutFormat object.


Applies only to callouts whose lines consist of more than one segment (types msoCalloutThree and msoCalloutFour). Use the CustomLength method to set the value of this property for the CalloutFormat object.


If the first line segment in the callout named "co1" has a fixed length, this example specifies that the length of the first line segment in the callout named "co2" will also be fixed at that length. For the example to work, both callouts must have multiple-segment lines.

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

With myDocument.Shapes

    With .Item("co1").Callout

        If Not .AutoLength Then len1 = .Length

    End With

    If len1 Then .Item("co2").Callout.CustomLength len1

End With
