The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example shows how to use the TargetType property to specify the type of object to which the validation rule named "Unglued2DShape" should apply.

Set vsoValidationRule = vsoValidationRuleSet.Rules.Add("Unglued2DShape")
vsoValidationRule.TargetType = Visio.VisRuleTargets.visRuleTargetShape
