Member of ChemDraw Control.Group.

Returns the geometries collection of this group.

Property type

Read-only property


Visual Basic
Public Property Geometries() As Geometries

Return Type



The geometries property refers to the collection of geometries which is within this Group. The properties associated with the collection are the following:

myGroup.Geometries.Application      returns the application associated with the geometries collection
myGroup.Geometries.Count             returns the number of geometries in the collection
myGroup.Geometries.Item(i)            returns one geometry from the collection
myGroup.Geometries.Parent            returns the parent of the geometries collection

With AltGroup.Geometries.Item(i) all the geometry properties are enabled for geometry(i). This index starts with 1.
