ShapeNodes.SetSegmentType method (Excel)

Sets the segment type of the segment that follows the node specified by Index. If the node is a control point for a curved segment, this method sets the segment type for that curve. Note that this may affect the total number of nodes by inserting or deleting adjacent nodes.


expression.SetSegmentType (Index, SegmentType)

expression A variable that represents a ShapeNodes object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Index Required Long The node whose segment type is to be set.
SegmentType Required MsoSegmentType Specifies if the segment is straight or curved.


This example changes all straight segments to curved segments in shape three on myDocument. Shape three must be a freeform drawing.

Set myDocument = Worksheets(1) 
With myDocument.Shapes(3).Nodes 
    n = 1 
    While n <= .Count 
        If .Item(n).SegmentType = msoSegmentLine Then 
            .SetSegmentType n, msoSegmentCurve 
        End If 
        n = n + 1 
End With
