WORKING WITH SHAPES

Shapes are those from the Drawing toolbar or the Forms toolbar.

LISTING SHAPE PROPERTIES OF ACTIVE WORKSHEET

The code below will create a new Worksheet where the Shape Properties are listed under their appropriate heading.

Sub GetShapeProperties()

    Dim sShapes As Shape, lLoop As Long

    Dim wsStart As Worksheet, WsNew As Worksheet

    

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

    ''''''''''LIST PROPERTIES OF SHAPES'''''''''''''

    Set wsStart = ActiveSheet

    Set WsNew = Sheets.Add

     

    'Add headings for our lists. Expand as needed

    WsNew.Range("A1:F1") = _

     Array("Shape Name", "Shape Type", "Height", "Width", "Left", "Top")

     

     

    'Loop through all shapes on active sheet

    For Each sShapes In wsStart.Shapes

        'Increment Variable lLoop for row numbers

        lLoop = lLoop + 1

        With sShapes

            'Add shape properties

            WsNew.Cells(lLoop + 1, 1) = .Name

            WsNew.Cells(lLoop + 1, 2) = .OLEFormat.Object.Name

            WsNew.Cells(lLoop + 1, 3) = .Height

            WsNew.Cells(lLoop + 1, 4) = .Width

            WsNew.Cells(lLoop + 1, 5) = .Left

            WsNew.Cells(lLoop + 1, 6) = .Top

            'Follow the same pattern for more

        End With

    Next sShapes

     

    'AutoFit Columns.

    WsNew.Columns.AutoFit

End Sub

LISTING SHAPE PROPERTIES OF ALL WORKSHEETS

The code below will create a new Worksheet where the Shape Properties from all Worksheets are listed under their appropriate heading.
