Shapes.AddPolyline method (Publisher)
Adds a new Shape object representing an open polyline or a closed polygon to the specified Shapes collection.
expression A variable that represents a Shapes object.
|SafeArrayOfPoints||Required||Variant||An array of coordinate pairs that specifies the polyline's or polygon's vertices.|
For the array elements in SafeArrayOfPoints, numeric values are evaluated in points; strings can be in any units supported by Microsoft Publisher (for example, "2.5 in").
To form a closed polygon, assign the same coordinates to the first and last vertices in the polyline drawing.
The following example adds a triangle to the first page of the active publication. Because the first and last points have the same coordinates, the polygon is closed.
Dim shpPolyline As Shape Dim arrPoints(1 To 4, 1 To 2) As Single arrPoints(1, 1) = 25 arrPoints(1, 2) = 100 arrPoints(2, 1) = 100 arrPoints(2, 2) = 150 arrPoints(3, 1) = 150 arrPoints(3, 2) = 50 arrPoints(4, 1) = 25 arrPoints(4, 2) = 100 Set shpPolyline = ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes.AddPolyline _ (SafeArrayOfPoints:=arrPoints)
