Linking Visio to MIMS via connector

Linking Visio to MIMS via connector

I'm interested in finding out if any one has been able to link an object wit in a Visio drawing to a MIMS record. For example you have a network diagram and it shows a server in Visio. The user is able to click on that server, go though the MIMS login process and then be shown the servers details in the MIMS equipment register

RE: Linking Visio to MIMS via connector

I've done some development using Connector with Excel, but haven't used Visio (other than the following experiment). Most of the VBA code which you use in Excel can be copied and pasted to Visio.
For me, the tricky bit was to identify the "selected shape", and found that ActiveWindow.Selection(1) seems to work. I've stored the MIMS Equipment No in the Data1 property of each shape (Right-Click - Format - Special). I also used Name and ObjectType properties to do some checking.
For each of the shapes in the drawing, change their double-click behaviour to run a new sub. (Right-Click - Format - Behaviour - Double-Click Tab - Run Macro - ThisDocument.MIMS_Equip_Detail). Seems to work OK.
