[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] anchorlock (Anchor Location Is Locked)

This element specifies that the anchor location for this object shall not be modified at runtime when an application edits the contents of this document. [Guidance: An application might have automatic behaviors which reposition the anchor for a VML object based on user interaction - for example, moving it from one page to another as needed. This element must tell applications not to perform any such behaviors. end guidance]

If this element is omitted, then the anchor shall not be locked for the parent VML object.

[Example: Consider a floating VML object which must have its anchor locked at the current location. This setting is specified as follows:


The anchorLock element's presence specifies that the VML object's current anchor location must not be changed by applications editing this content. end example].
