 Set vsoApplication = Visio.Application 
 
 'Display the Pan &; Zoom window 
 Set vsoPZWindow = vsoApplication.ActiveWindow.Windows.ItemFromID(visWinIDPanZoom) 
 vsoPZWindow.Visible = True

 vsoPZWindow.GetWindowRect pinLeft, pinTop, pinWidth, pinHeight 
 Debug.Print pinLeft, pinTop, pinWidth, pinHeight
