TextEffectFormat.ToggleVerticalText Method

Switches the text flow in the specified WordArt from horizontal to vertical, or vice versa.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll)


Sub ToggleVerticalText
Dim instance As TextEffectFormat

void ToggleVerticalText()


Using the ToggleVerticalText method swaps the values of the Width and Height properties of the Shape object that represents the WordArt and leaves the Left and Top properties unchanged.

The Flip method and Rotation property of the Shape object and the RotatedChars property and ToggleVerticalText method of the TextEffectFormat object all affect the character orientation and the direction of text flow in a Shape object that represents WordArt. You may have to experiment to find out how to combine the effects of these properties and methods to get the result you want.
