Shape.ScaleWidth Method (PowerPoint)
Scales the width of the shape by a specified factor. For pictures and OLE objects, you can indicate whether you want to scale the shape relative to the original size or relative to the current size. Shapes other than pictures and OLE objects are always scaled relative to their current width.
expression A variable that represents a Shape object.
|Factor||Required||Single||Specifies the ratio between the width of the shape after you resize it and the current or original width. For example, to make a rectangle 50 percent larger, specify 1.5 for this argument.|
|RelativeToOriginalSize||Required||MsoTriState||Specifies whether a shape is scaled relative to its current or original size.|
|fScale||Optional||MsoScaleFrom||The part of the shape that retains its position when the shape is scaled.|
For pictures and OLE objects, you can indicate whether you want to scale the shape relative to the original size or relative to the current size. Shapes other than pictures and OLE objects are always scaled relative to their current width.
The RelativeToOriginalSize parameter value can be one of the following MsoTriState constants. You can specify msoTrue for this parameter only if the specified shape is a picture or an OLE object.
|msoFalse||Scales the shape relative to its current size.|
|msoTrue||Scales the shape relative to its original size.|
The fScale parameter value can be one of the following MsoScaleFrom constants. The default is msoScaleFromTopLeft.
This example scales all pictures and OLE objects on
myDocument to 175 percent of their original height and width, and it scales all other shapes to 175 percent of their current height and width.
