I am very stuck and I was wondering if any of you could give me a
hand. I'm trying to write a Perl or VB script to connect some
rectangles in Visio with a 'connector'. I have found there is very
little help online in the way of making Visio macros with Perl. I have
found Perl can translate directly in to Visual Basic in most cases by
substituting "->" in for ".". For some reason, however, I am not able
$Visio->ActivePage->Drop($Visio->ConnectorToolDataObject, 2, 2);
where $Visio is the Visio Application. I am using the Win32::OLE
library by the way.
Fortunatly, I am able to connect the shapes with the connector by
having it select the two rectangles and using
Anyway...my main goal is to change the color of the connector. Is
there anyway to do this by way of the method I am using. I think I
need to set the connector it created equal to a variable somehow, that
way I can use the $connector->cells("LineColor")-> = color. I
am not currently sure how to define it. I was hoping one of you would
know some clever way to do it. If you know how to do this in VB,
without using the Drop way I would REALLY appriciate it, and hopefully
I will be able to translate it to Perl. I've been going around in
circles about this for days. If you know how to use the Drop way I
talked about above in Perl, first, you are awesome, second can you
please tell me how?
If you know the answer to this, seriously you are a genious.
