I have a 30 page Visio file and each time I navigate to a page 1, 3, 7, etc. I would like that page to change its view into FIT TO WINDOW.

How can I get this done?

Well, if you are using hyperlinks on shapes, you can set a target zoom level:

The hyperlink approach Visio_Guy suggested above works very nicely. But if you also want to change the zoom setting when someone manually changes pages, a few lines of code will do the job.

Dim WithEvents Win1 As Visio.Window

Private Sub Document_DocumentOpened(ByVal doc As IVDocument)

    Set Win1 = ActiveWindow

End Sub

Private Sub Win1_WindowTurnedToPage(ByVal Window As IVWindow)

    Win1.Zoom = -1

End Sub

Open in new window

To avoid having the repeatedly open and close the document to test your code, see this article by Visio_Guy.

Both solutions are equally useful, terse and brilliant.  
In a stupid design decision, EE only allows one BEST solution --which in this case is profoundly unjust.

Scot:
Where do I place the code?
I put it in THIS DOCUMENT and nothing happened.
I put it in MODULE1 and the DIM statement appeared in Red.

Dim WithEvents Win1 As Visio.Window

Private Sub Document_DocumentOpened(ByVal doc As IVDocument)

    Set Win1 = ActiveWindow

End Sub

Private Sub Win1_WindowTurnedToPage(ByVal Window As IVWindow)

    Win1.Zoom = -1

End Sub 

Open in new window

Place the code in ThisDocument. Close the document and then open it again -- that will execute Document_DocumentOpened, which activates the ability to trap the turned-to-page event.

At this point, the code will be running but it won't look like it's doing anything unless you have pages that are zoomed in or out. So -- zoom way in or out on a page, change to another page and then change back to the first page -- it will be back to full page view.
