    Hi.

    Is it possible to program the width and height of an object added onto a chart?

    To position a range I can use:
    selection.shaperange.left = value
    selection.shaperange.top = value

    But, if I want to change the proportions of the actual shape (not the shape range), is it possible? selection.shaperange.width/height do not seem to work.

    Thanks,
    Corey

    What I want is for the horizontal size of the object (basically a legend for the x-axis that is located at the top of the chart area) to be equal to the horizontal length of the chart/plot area. Is it possible to find the width of the plot area, then set the width of the object to that same value?

    Thanks,
    Corey

    Hi,

    It is possible to change the shape and position of you object:

    I guess position you have figured out, and the codes for width and height are:

    Sheet1.ComboBox1.ShapeRange.Left = 50
    Sheet1.ComboBox1.ShapeRange.Top = 100
    Sheet1.ComboBox1.Width = 100
    Sheet1.ComboBox1.Height = 20

    The last two lines. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the reply. That doesn't seem to work for me, though.

    The object I'm trying to resize is located on a chart. I don't know if that makes a difference or not. This is the code I'm using:


    Sub MoveObject()
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 11").Activate
    ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
    ActiveChart.Shapes("Group 23").Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
    Selection.ShapeRange.Height = 45
    Selection.ShapeRange.Width = 413
    Selection.ShapeRange.Left = 65
    Selection.ShapeRange.Top = 10
    End Sub


    The size of the object will not change, regardless of what I put as values for the height/width. I've tried with the aspect locked/unlock, and that doesn't do anything to help me either.

    It seems to be resizing the range of the shape, but not the object itself (best way I can think to describe it is to think of a gif image: if you change the height/width attributes, the image itself doesn't change, just the size of the 'box' or 'container' the picture is located in - thus you have more room to put in extra info such as a second image).

    Any more help/ideas?

    Thanks,
    Corey

    Tried to use this also, with no luck:

    ActiveChart.Shapes("Group 23").Height = 45
    ActiveChart.Shapes("Group 23").Width = 413


    Can anyone help?
