Chapter 8. Text Behavior and Style Theor... > Protecting Visio SmartShapes Symbols...

Protecting Visio SmartShapes Symbols Formatting

Earlier I told you that the application of a style overrides any local formatting applied to a Visio SmartShape symbol. The consequence of this is the overwriting of any value, formula, or custom formula that might be in the cell targeted by the application of that style. I want to remind you that the LockFormat cell in the Protection section will prohibit the application of a style to a SmartShape symbol just as explicitly placing a GUARD() function around any value, formula, or custom formula in that cell will protect that one cell from being overwritten.

Thus far we have seen how Visio handles text on a SmartShape symbol and how we can customize the behavior to make text work as a tool for our solutions. We have also delved into the concept of styles and looked at their creation, application, and management.
