I have a table for a protocol which I am using to generate shapes dynamically.
In the table is stored a list of resource names and I am able to access the resource / function name directly in the visio view from a table param.
The resources are linked to an ID for the DVE and the DVE has a visio page which I want to open on a button press (this part is working if element id is defined statically).
I wondered if from a visio view there is a way to retrieve the linked element from a resource based on the resource name, allowing me to determine which element to link my button press.
I don't think it matters whether it concerns a real element or a "Resource" element. As long as you have the correct name of the (resource) element in your table it should be possible to link a shape with "Element" shape data and make sure it contains the correct name of the (resource) element in the value. This should work both by name and element ID.
