The diagShape type is used to define all the advanced characteristics of the original shape used in a diagram.
CAUTION:
  • A variable of type diagShape should not be assigned directly, and cannot be directly added to a diagram. Only the types that derive from this type of variable can be assigned or added to a diagram:
  • diagShape variables are used to handle the types of shapes, in particular arrays of shapes.
Example
// Iterate over the shapes in a diagram
ShapeName is string
diagControl is Diagram <- DIAGEDT_DIAG
 
FOR EACH ShapeInDiagram OF diagControl.Shape
ShapeName = ShapeInDiagram.Name // Gets the name of the shape
END

Properties specific to diagShape variables

The following properties can be used to handle an original shape:
Property nameType usedEffect
New in version 28
ActionAllowed
diagActionAllowed or constant
  • diagActionAllowed variable used to define the changes the user can make to the shape.
  • diagActionNone constant: no action available.
  • diagActionAll constant (Default value): all actions are available.
AngleRealAngle of rotation of the shape (in degrees).
BackgroundConstant, integer or ColorBackground color of the shape.
The Color property is used to define the background color of the shape.
This property can correspond to:
  • an RGB color (returned by RGB),
  • an HSL color (returned by HSL),
  • a WLanguage preset color.
  • a variable of type Color. In this case, the opacity specified in the variable is taken into account.
BorderdiagBorderCharacteristics of the shape border.
The available properties are:
  • Color: border color.
  • Thickness: border thickness.
  • Type: border type.
CommentCharacter stringNote about the shape. This note is not displayed.
ConnectionPointArray of diagConnectionPointList of connection points of the shape.
HeightRealHeight of the box that contains the shape before rotation or zoom, expressed in pixels.
Name Character stringShape name. This name will be used for searching, for example, if the shape is in a library.
NoteCharacter stringNote associated with the shape.
OpacityIntegerPercentage of opacity of the shape. This value ranges from invisible (0) to completely opaque (100).
ShadowBoolean
  • True if the shape has a shadow,
  • False otherwise.
TextdiagTextText (with formatting) inside the shape.
WidthRealWidth of the box that contains the shape before rotation or zoom, expressed in pixels.
XReal X-coordinate of the box that contains the shape before rotation or zoom, expressed in pixels. This X-coordinate is relative to the parent of the shape.
YReal Y-coordinate of the box that contains the shape before rotation or zoom, expressed in pixels. This Y-coordinate is relative to the parent of the shape.
Minimum version required
  • Version 27
