US State Flags for Visio

I am working on a project where I thought the US State flags might be useful, so I quickly created a new master shape from the images in Wikipedia. The shape simply provides a selection of one of the states from the Shape Data window (plus one extra for the reverse of Oregon’s flag!).

The flag shape has a couple of Shape Data rows:

  • State – A drop-down list of all states to select from
  • Hide Text – True/False

A right-mouse action that is linked to the Hide Text Shape Data row.

A hyperlink to the main Wikipedia page for the Flags of the U.S. states, and one to the selected state Wikipedia page.


UPDATE : The flags now include hyperlinks to go to the state in Bing and Google maps too.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
