Activex Combobox Change Font Size - VBA

Sep 13, 2012

I am trying to change the font size on my combo box using VBA.

I create the combobox dynamically, so need to be able to change the font too.

This is how I create the combobox, however the .Font.Size = 10 does not work and the default font size is 11.

Code:
With ActiveSheet .OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.ComboBox.1", Link:=False, _
DisplayAsIcon:=False, Left:=159.75, Top:=80.25, Width:=75.75, Height:=19.5) _
.Font.Size = 10
.Name = "cmbBaseD"
.OLEObjects("cmbBaseD").ListFillRange = "DynRng"
End With

Change Font Size Of Combo Box

Jul 18, 2007

I've created a combo box in excel with the macro recorder. This is the code that came back:

Sub test1()
ActiveSheet.DropDowns.Add(1305, 52.5, 242.25, 39).Select
With Selection
.ListFillRange = "$AW$4:$AW$18"
.LinkedCell = "$AX$5"
.DropDownLines = 5
.Display3DShading = False
End With
End Sub

This always results in a default font size of 8 for my list. Can anyone tell me how to modify the code above to change the font size to 14? And how to modify the color of the list.

How do I set the font size property and special effect property in this code?

I was trying to answer a question on Experrt Exchange but Rory beat me to it and now I'm feeling frustrated that I can't get my solution to work.

Sub AddCombo()Dim rVals As Range, rCell As Range, lTop, lLef, lHeight, lWidth, lCount As LongSet rVals = ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeAllValidation)lCount = 1For Each rCell In rValsIf rCell.Validation.Type = 3 ThenlTop = rCell.ToplLeft = rCell.LeftlHeight = rCell.Rows.HeightlWidth = rCell.Columns.WidthWith ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(classtype:="Forms.ComboBox.1", Left:=lLeft, Top:=lTop, Width:=lWidth, Height:=lHeight).Name = "NewCombo" & lCount.ListFillRange = rCell.Validation.Formula1.LinkedCell = rCell.Address(0, 0)'.SpecialEffect = fmSpecialEffectFlat //doesn't work //'.FontSize = 14 //doesn't work //'.Font.Size = 14 // doesn't work //End WithlCount = lCount + 1End IfNext rCellEnd Sub

Automatically Change Font Size On Selection

Aug 13, 2008

I use this ok code to increase the font in the selected cell:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim TargetRange As Range
Dim isect
Set TargetRange = Range("C:D")
Set isect = Intersect(Target, TargetRange)
If Not isect Is Nothing Then
Columns("C:D").Font.Size = 11
Target.Font.Size = 15
Exit Sub
End If
Columns("C:D").Font.Size = 11
End Sub

The problem is when i press ctrl+c to copy a cell content, so once i move the curser to the distenation cell then the copying mode in selected cell disappeared.
It is because when the event is trigered then the copying mode stops. The question is : how to let the copying mode works even when the event is trigered ?

Macro Works Unless Change Font Size In Document?

Jul 7, 2014

I have this macro that works perfectly. My boss wanted the subtotal lines within the report to be in a smaller font, so I added lines to the macro to do that. It won't work with those lines in there! It says the reference is not valid on the red line in the code below. The 2 blue sections are the ones I added to change the font size.

Code:
'Add subtotals at the end of each age bucket
For i = 10 To LR Step 1
fr = Range("E" & i - 3).End(xlUp).Row
If Range("B" & i).Value = "Totals" Then
Range("E" & i).Formula = "=SUBTOTAL(9,E" & fr & ":E" & i - 2 & ")"
With Range("E" & i & ":R" & i).FillRight

[code].....

Why would the font size make a difference? Is there some other way to change the font size that would work better?

Use Conditional Formatting To Change Font Size Based On Value Of Cell?

Jul 18, 2013

I am trying to set up conditional formatting in cell C4 to change the font to a smaller number based on the value of C4. If C4 = 0 then Font Calibri 16, otherwise Font Calibri 24. However, the font size is not availabe, it is greyed out. Is there another way to accomplish this without using VBA? In the worksheet could I use an if() statement to change the font size?

Comparing Two Cells Based On Text, Font, Colour, Font Size Etc

Jun 3, 2006

I'm looking to set up a spreadsheet whereby individuals answer questions and have to format their answer using a particular font, colour, font size and so on. The idea is that I can then compare their answer sheet to a pre completed one using an =IF function and get a total score. The only problem is =if and =exact only lookup cell text/numbers and don't look at how the text is formatted within them.

I have created several macros where i use an active-X control button. This button is pressed and the macro begins...........but every now and again this button changes size for no apparent reason.

I have read countless articles/posts about what "may" be causing the problem but i have never read anything which clearly identifies the soln to this problem and the problem has been out there for years. To make matters worse the problem can not be duplicated on any regular frequency that i am aware of............so its not like i can post a file that will show the problem.............

Inconsistent Font Size?

Jun 10, 2013

I have my Excel set up for a default font size of 12 point.

I often download CSV data to insert into spreadsheets. It opens in a new spreadsheet, and it's properly displayed in 12 point size. When i copy and paste it into the ultimate target spreadsheet (which is also set to 12 point size) the pasted data shows up as 10-point and I have to change the font size back to 12-point every time.

Why is this happening and how can I avoid that re-sizing that occurs?

Linking Font Size Changes

Jan 13, 2009

This probably sounds really weird, but does anyone know whether the size of the text in Cell A1 on Sheet 1 can be linked to the size of the text in Cell B2 on Sheet 2? Like, when I change the size of Cell A1's text, is there a way to have the size of Cell B2's text change as well?

Drop-down Box Font Size

Mar 18, 2009

I currently have an Excel spreadsheet already created. I have added drop down lists using the Validation>Data feature and can get this to create the drop-down box, but the font is unreadable. If I create a new sheet and create the drop-down list it becomes readable. I can't figure out why the first is unreadable due to its small size. I eventually plan to add formulas to calculate how many yes's or no's in a column, but will address that later. I use Excel 2003.

Font Size In A Drop-down List

May 16, 2006

I have a drop-down list that displays at about a size 6 (or smaller) font when the worksheet is displayed at 75-100%. I can make it readable by changing the magnification of the sheet to 150-200%, but that takes the rest of the sheet out of view, interferes with functionality, and is just an all-around pain in the butt. How do I format the list to make it display at a readable size?

Use Activex Combobox In The Worksheet

Jan 5, 2008

successfully use Activex combobox on the worksheet, (excel 2003)
without the code from other boxes being triggered at random.

Or should I give this up, and use a form to house these controls? ( I have no Knowledge on this)

I've tried certain IF then statements to protect the excecutable, but it seems, that, even boxes in other books are looked at, with a simple call statement (to a macro in module)

Having a real problem in Isolating these things.

Try to get the code to activate when you select the same Item twice, It seems none of the procedures do this. I made a workaround with using two procedures, but it's a bit clumsy.

ActiveX Combobox Code-run

Jun 4, 2009

I've created a workbook on whose main sheet there are three activex comboboxes. The first one contains a list of years, and the second one contains a list of months. The user selects the year, and it goes to its linked cell. The user then selects a month, and using the Combobox_Click event, should run a sequence of 7 macros (i.e. using the "call updateinformation1" macro, which is the first of the seven updateinformation macros).

The sequence of macros ran fine before I added the comboboxes. After adding the comboboxes, the final (7th) macro somehow goes back to the first macro and then causes a "ClearContents method of Range class failed" error on the "Selection.ClearContents" line. These are the first and seventh macros:

Sub updateinformation1()
'clears previous information to make way for new information
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False

Worksheets("Criteria2").Activate
Cells.Select
Selection.ClearContents

I can't for the life of me figure out why it's looping back to the first macro instead of just stopping after the seventh. I have other workbooks that do something similar, and I don't have this problem. Am I missing something?

if I need to post all 7 macros?
