Return value



The following example creates three shapes, assigns two shapes to the first range, assigns the other shape to the second range, and then selects the shape ranges. Because the second range selection adds to the first range selection, all three shapes are selected (see Figure 1).

Sub SelectShapes()
    Dim theReport As Report
    Dim shp1 As shape
    Dim shp2 As shape
    Dim shp3 As shape
    Dim reportName As String
    Dim sRange1 As ShapeRange
    Dim sRange2 As ShapeRange
    reportName = "Select Report"
    Set theReport = ActiveProject.Reports.Add(reportName)
    Set shp1 = theReport.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeActionButtonHelp, 20, 50, 20, 30)
    Set shp2 = theReport.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeBalloon, 100, 50, 30, 50)
    Set shp3 = theReport.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeWave, 140, 50, 30, 50)
    Set sRange1 = theReport.Shapes.Range(Array(2, 3))
    Set sRange2 = theReport.Shapes.Range(1)
    sRange2.Select False
End Sub
