Force all labels to draw with Leader Lines and no overlap

Discussion created by douglas.robbie on Oct 23, 2012

I am looking for an expression that would make Maplex draw all labels with leader lines of different lengths and/or placement on the label without overlapping them. It seems if I could dynamically change the placement of the leader line in relation to the label and alter the length (which it already does) I would have more success labeling multiple point features that are in very close proximity to each other.

Is there anyone out there who has an VB expression that does this?
