<cNvSpPr> (Connection Non-Visual Shape Properties)

This element specifies the set of non-visual properties for a connection shape. These properties specify all data about the connection shape which do not affect its display within a spreadsheet.

[Example: Consider the shape that has a shape lock applied to it.

    <xdr:cNvPr id="2" name="Rectangle 1"/>
      <a:spLocks noGrp="1"/>

This shape lock is stored within the non-visual drawing properties for this shape. End example]
