Hi Experts,

I am generating a large VISIO diagram.  On completion, I would like to have the top-left portion of the diagram in view. How can I do this from my VBScript code?

Please advise.

The code below sets the viewing rectangle. You can experiment with the parameters, especially width and height, to get the size you need.
Sub SetViewingArea()

    Dim dLeft As Double, dTop As Double, dWidth As Double, dHeight As Double

    dLeft = 0
    dTop = ActivePage.PageSheet.CellsU("PageHeight").ResultIU
    dWidth = 6
    dHeight = 4
    
    Application.ActiveWindow.SetViewRect dLeft, dTop, dWidth, dHeight
    
End Sub

Open in new window

Two additional thoughts: 1) The ResultIU property returns a value in "internal units" and Visio's internal units are expressed in inches. 2) The default units for a diagram based on a US units is inches, consequently, all dimensions in the code sample above are in inches.
