FreeformBuilder Object [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]


Represents the geometry of a freeform while it's being built.

Using the FreeformBuilder Object

Use the BuildFreeform method to return a FreeformBuilder object. Use the AddNodes method to add nodes to the freefrom. Use the ConvertToShape method to create the shape defined in the FreeformBuilder object and add it to the Shapes collection. The following example adds a freeform with four segments to myDocument.

Set myDocument = Worksheets(1)
With myDocument.Shapes.BuildFreeform(msoEditingCorner, 360, 200)
    .AddNodes msoSegmentCurve, msoEditingCorner, _
        380, 230, 400, 250, 450, 300
    .AddNodes msoSegmentCurve, msoEditingAuto, 480, 200
    .AddNodes msoSegmentLine, msoEditingAuto, 480, 400
    .AddNodes msoSegmentLine, msoEditingAuto, 360, 200
End With
