Type Description

A ReadOnlyShapeCollection object specifying the read-only collection of shapes.


The Get method returns a collection of Shape objects (inline and floating pictures, text boxes) contained in the specified range.

The method can be accessed using the RichEditControl.Document.Shapes.Get notation.


To obtain images, contained in the document range, use the ReadOnlyDocumentImageCollection.Get method.


If you operate with a selection range, the Get method should be enclosed within a DocumentRange.BeginUpdateDocument - DocumentRange.EndUpdateDocument method pair. Otherwise, an incorrect document model might be selected, resulting in an exception “Error: specified document position or range belongs to other document or subdocument” being thrown.
