Dynamic Shape Data in a Screetip (Visio) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I have a Visio diagram to which I have linked a couple of Sharepoint lists to. I want to display selected fields of shape data in a screentip, depending on what list is linked to. I have tried =prop.fieldname in the screentip box, but upon mouseover I get the text "=prop.fieldname". Is there a method to put in the screentip box such that I can do this? Could I do "=METHOD(listname1.fieldname1) & vbLF & METHOD(listname2.fieldname2)" in order to format the screentip? I'm using Visio 2013 Professional and looking to upgrade to 2016 Professional in the near future.

    I have seen a couple of variations of this by looking through various forums and I've been trying to build a bridge from both banks, hoping to meet in the middle, but with little success. Hopefully there is a quick answer, but I would be satisfied with just an answer or an avenue to an answer.

    Thanks in advance.
