Chapter 2. An Introduction to ShapeSheet... > Creating an Indicator SmartShape Sym...

Creating an Indicator SmartShape Symbol

Now you have more information in your tool set of knowledge, and you should be able to do brilliantly on the next lab exercise. I'm going to put you through your paces here. You are going to implement much of what you already know and just a little more to make this next Visio SmartShape symbol. The symbol you are going to create is an Indicator symbol. The symbol is adjustable in both height and width. Adjustment in width displays the width as a real unitless number above the symbol as text on the symbol It is an indicator of quantity. The symbol includes an adjustable pointer that displays the percent completed or the percent along the indication path as a ToolTip to the control handle. The position of the indicator is adjustable via two control handles. The symbol does not distort when adjusted in any manner. Sound like a lot to tackle? It is, but I'm sure that you are up to the challenge.

When you are finished, your indicator will look like Figure 2.4.
