ShapeRange.ScaleHeight Method (Publisher)

Scales the height 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.

Syntax

expression. ScaleHeight(Factor, RelativeToOriginalSize, fScale)

expression A variable that represents a ShapeRange object.

Parameters

Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Factor Required Single Specifies the ratio between the height of the shape after you resize it and the current or original height. For example, to make a rectangle 50 percent larger, specify 1.5 for this argument.
RelativeToOriginalSize Required MsoTriState Specifies whether to scale relative to the object's original or current size.
fScale Optional MsoScaleFrom The part of the shape that retains its position when the shape is scaled.

Remarks

The RelativeToOriginalSize parameter can be one of the MsoTriState constants declared in the Microsoft Office type library and shown in the following table.

Constant Description
msoFalse Scales the shape relative to its current size.
msoTrue Scales the shape relative to its original size.

The fScale parameter can be one of the MsoScaleFrom constants declared in the Microsoft Office type library and shown in the following table. The default is msoScaleFromTopLeft.

msoScaleFromBottomRight
msoScaleFromTopLeft

Shapes other than pictures and OLE objects are always scaled relative to their current height; specifying a RelativeToOriginalSize value of msoTrue for shapes other than pictures or OLE objects causes an error.

Use the ScaleWidth method to scale the width of a shape.

Example

This example scales all pictures and OLE objects on the first page of the active publication to 175 percent of their original height and width, and it scales all other shapes to 175 percent of their current height and width.
