Chapter 7. Creating Validation Rules
In the last chapter, we finished creating a tool to allow us to manipulate rules in Microsoft Visio 2013 Professional in the following ways:
- Review rules
- Edit rules
- Create rules
- Test rules
- Import rules
- Export rules
In this chapter, we will use this tool to create rules for structured diagramming. We will look at the common ShapeSheet functions that will be useful for rules, and the new validation functions.
We will also go through different scenarios for creating rules, especially with regard to the Filter and Test Expressions.
You can also refer to an article that I wrote on MSDN to discover more information about validation rules: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff847470(v=office.14).aspx.
