type is used to define all the advanced characteristics of a group of shapes in a Diagram Editor control. The characteristics of this group can be defined and changed using different WLanguage properties.

Properties specific to diagGroup variables
Remark: The diagGroup
type inherits from the diagShape
type. This means all the properties of the diagShape
type are available for the diagGroup
type. These properties appear in italics in the list below.
The following properties can be used to handle a shape of type diagGroup:
|Property name||Type used||Effect|
New in version 28ActionAllowed |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.
|Angle||Real||Angle of rotation of the shape (in degrees). |
|Background||Constant, integer or Color||Background 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.
|Border||diagBorder||Characteristics of the shape border. |
The available properties are:
- Color: border color.
- Thickness: border thickness.
- Type: border type.
|Comment||Character string||Note about the shape. This note is not displayed. |
|ConnectionPoint||Array of diagConnectionPoint||List of connection points of the shape. |
|Height||Real||Height of the box that contains the shape before rotation or zoom, expressed in pixels. |
|Name||Character string||Shape name. This name will be used for searching, for example, if the shape is in a library. |
|Note||Character string||Note associated with the shape. |
|Opacity||Integer||Percentage of opacity of the shape. This value ranges from invisible (0) to completely opaque (100).|
- True if the shape has a shadow,
- False otherwise.
|Shape||Array of diagShape||Shapes in the group. |
|Text||diagText||Text (with formatting) inside the shape. |
|Width||Real||Width of the box that contains the shape before rotation or zoom, expressed in pixels. |
|X||Real ||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.|
|Y||Real ||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.|
