ApplicationSettings.SnapStrengthGeometryY property (Visio)

Specifies the distance in pixels along the y -axis that shape geometry pulls when snapping is enabled. Read/write.



expression A variable that represents an ApplicationSettings object.

Return value



Setting the SnapStrengthGeometryY property is equivalent to setting the Geometry option under Snap strength on the Advanced tab in the Snap & Glue dialog box (click the Visual Aids arrow on the View tab). Setting snap strength in the UI sets both x and y values to the same value.

The minimum allowable value for the SnapStrengthGeometryY property is 0 (zero), and the maximum is 999. Attempting to set a value outside that range returns an error. The default value is 8.


This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the SnapStrengthGeometryY property to print the current snap strength geometry y -axis setting in the Immediate window. It also shows how to get an ApplicationSettings object from the Visio Application object.

Public Sub SnapStrengthGeometryY_Example() 
 Dim vsoApplicationSettings As Visio.ApplicationSettings 
 Dim lngSnapStrength As Long 
 Set vsoApplicationSettings = Visio.Application.Settings 
 lngSnapStrength = vsoApplicationSettings.SnapStrengthGeometryY 
 Debug.Print lngSnapStrength 
End Sub
