Visio 2010 Validation Rules (part 2)

In my previous post, I began to explore the new Validation objects in the Visio 2010 Technical Preview, an I used some VBA code to do this.  Well, I have now uploaded the code to OneDrive ( bVisualValidationExplorer.vss ), so that you can use it too!  So, this post is about using this code …

Things that Should be Easy
