The Text object represents a stand-alone text object in the document. Text objects are created by the AddText method.


Derived from: Shape object (All methods and properties of Shape apply to this object.)







The following script demonstrates how to use a Text object.


Sub Main

'Declares mvApp as an object

 Dim mvApp As Object


'Creates an instance of the MapViewer Application

'object and assigns it to the variable named "mvApp"

 Set mvApp = CreateObject("MapViewer.Application")


'Makes MapViewer visible

 mvApp.Visible = True


'Declares Plot as an object

 Dim Plot As Object


'Creates a map document in MapViewer and

'assigns it to the variable named "Plot"

 Set Plot = mvApp.Documents.Add(mvDocPlot)


'Declares PlotLayers as an object

 Dim PlotLayers As Object


'Assigns the map document layers to the

'variable named "PlotLayers"

 Set PlotLayers = Plot.Layers


'Declares CurrentLayer as an object

 Dim CurrentLayer As Object


'Assigns the active plot layer to the

'variable named "CurrentLayer"

 Set CurrentLayer = PlotLayers.ActiveLayer


'Assign the shapes collection to the

'variable named "MapShapes"

 Set MapShapes = CurrentLayer.Shapes


'Add a text object with the words "Golden Software"

 Set Text = MapShapes.AddText(x:=5, y:=7, Text:="Golden Software")
