This sounds like homework. Experts can assist you with YOUR code, but should not provide code of their own - it is in the rules.

If this is truly a Visio question, you don't even need code. You can do it in the ShapeSheet!

Draw a right triangle.

Insert a (text) field, choose Custom Formula, enter =SQRT(Width^2 + Height^2), select a number format option, then click OK.

The shape will display the length of the hypotenuse no matter how you stretch the width and height of the shape!
