Default Simple Loop?

Hi there,

I'm trying to create a loop (in Coreldraw 11) that does the following to a selected set of curves:

1. checks to see if the curve is open or not, then
2. closes an open curve with a straight line segment, then
2. obtains the RGB color of the outline, then
3. applies this RGB color to a uniform fill

Unfortunately, I'm not that experienced programming in VB and am not at all familiar with the object model in Coreldraw.

Could anyone find it in there heart to post what i believe should be a relatively simple bit of code that i can use and learn from?

Here is the code for you:

Sub ApplyOutlineToFill()
    Dim s As Shape
    Dim clr As New Color
    ActiveDocument.BeginCommandGroup "Apply Outline To Fill"
    ' Go through all selected objects
    For Each s In ActiveSelection.Shapes
        ' If it is a curve and it is open, close it
        If s.Type = cdrCurveShape Then
            If Not s.Curve.Closed Then s.Curve.Closed = True
        End If
        If s.Type <> cdrGroupShape Then
            ' See if the object has an outline
            If s.Outline.Type = cdrOutline Then
                ' Get the outline color
                clr.CopyAssign s.Outline.Color
                ' Convert it to RGB
                ' Apply to the fill
                s.Fill.ApplyUniformFill clr
            End If
        End If
    Next s
End Sub
If you have any questions about it, please let me know.

This code worked like a charm... first shot. Thanks so much!! My "workaround" to accomplish this same thing was so cumbersome that it's too embarrasing to even share it with you.

Now all i have to do is go buy a book and learn to do simple things like your code did for me. I might get so much more accomplished in a day that i can start leaving work early to play golf .

Be sure to start with CorelDRAW programming guide which is included in your CorelDRAW installation (as a PDF file). Look for dvba_pg.pdf (yes, I know, the name is weird, but the content is a treasure though)...
