Extended properties

In the last post I showed how to read the Extended Properties of a Visio stencil. But how do we know how which property to use?

We can adapt our script to list the possible Extended Properties

001
002
003
004
005
$direc = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\Visio Content\1033"
$shell = New-Object -ComObject "Shell.Application"
$folder = $shell.Namespace($direc)

0..300 | foreach { "$_ $($folder.GetDetailsOf($null,$_))"}

 

On Windows 7 I counted 286 properties.  Its a long scroll but you will find what you want.
