expression. Visible

expression A variable that represents a DataColumn object.

Return Value



If when a shape is linked to data, Visible is set to True , and if Visio adds a row to the Shape Data section of the ShapeSheet spreadsheet of the linked shape for the data column, subsequently setting the Visible property to False causes Visio to remove the ShapeSheet row it added.

If the row in the Shape Data section existed prior to linking, setting the Visible property to False does not result in Visio removing the ShapeSheet row; however, the shape data item the row represents no longer is subject to change when data in the data recordset is refreshed.

When the Visible property is set to False , Visio does not create a ShapeSheet row for the data column when it links shapes to data.
