Excel.GroupShapeCollection class

Represents the shape collection inside a shape group.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.9 ]

Extends
OfficeExtension.ClientObject

Properties

context

The request context associated with the object. This connects the add-in's process to the Office host application's process.

items

Gets the loaded child items in this collection.

Methods

getCount()

Returns the number of shapes in the shape group. Read-only.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.9 ]

getItem(key)

Gets a shape using its Name or ID.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.9 ]

getItemAt(index)

Gets a shape based on its position in the collection.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.9 ]

load(option)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call "context.sync()" before reading the properties.

load(propertyNames)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(option)
toJSON()

Overrides the JavaScript toJSON() method in order to provide more useful output when an API object is passed to JSON.stringify(). (JSON.stringify, in turn, calls the toJSON method of the object that is passed to it.) Whereas the original Excel.GroupShapeCollection object is an API object, the toJSON method returns a plain JavaScript object (typed as Excel.Interfaces.GroupShapeCollectionData) that contains an "items" array with shallow copies of any loaded properties from the collection's items.

Remarks

In addition to this signature, this method has the following signatures:

load(option?: string | string[]): Excel.GroupShapeCollection - Where option is a comma-delimited string or an array of strings that specify the properties to load.

load(option?: { select?: string; expand?: string; }): Excel.GroupShapeCollection - Where option.select is a comma-delimited string that specifies the properties to load, and options.expand is a comma-delimited string that specifies the navigation properties to load.

load(option?: { select?: string; expand?: string; top?: number; skip?: number }): Excel.GroupShapeCollection - Only available on collection types. It is similar to the preceding signature. Option.top specifies the maximum number of collection items that can be included in the result. Option.skip specifies the number of items that are to be skipped and not included in the result. If option.top is specified, the result set will start after skipping the specified number of items.

load(propertyNames)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNames?: string | string[]): Excel.GroupShapeCollection;

Parameters

propertyNames
string | string[]

A comma-delimited string or an array of strings that specify the properties to load.

Returns

load(option)

load(option?: OfficeExtension.LoadOption): Excel.GroupShapeCollection;

Parameters
