ActiveTextStyle Property

Specifies the active text style for the drawing.

See Also | Example




The object or objects this property applies to.


TextStyle object; read-write
The active text style for the drawing.


New text added to the drawing will adopt the active text style. Existing text that has no distinct text style specified will adopt the new active text style.

Changes made to the current active text style will become visible only after that text style is reset as the active text style. To reset the active text style, simply call this property with the updated text style object.

NOTE A call to the Regen method is necessary to see this change.

To specify a distinct text style for an object so it will not change along with the active text style, use the StyleName property.
