ShadowFormat object (Excel)

Represents shadow formatting for a shape.


Use the Shadow property of the Shape object to return a ShadowFormat object.


The following example adds a shadowed rectangle to myDocument. The semi-transparent, blue shadow is offset 5 points to the right of the rectangle and 3 points above it.

Set myDocument = Worksheets(1) 
With myDocument.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, _ 
 50, 50, 100, 200).Shadow 
 .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 128) 
 .OffsetX = 5 
 .OffsetY = -3 
 .Transparency = 0.5 
 .Visible = True 
End With
