Cannot Make Shape Fill Without Clicking

May 26, 2014

For this example.. Think of this information:

shape = rectangle 1

starting fill colour = 255,255,255 (white)

I have a cell on the other part of sheet which has a value of 0 - but changes to 1 when I hover over another part of the sheet.

I need this shape to change fill from white to an image whenever that cell changes value to "1".

I need all this without clicking on an object! JUST when the cell changes, I can mange it with a click but that's besides the point.

Fill Shape With Picture 2007

Aug 21, 2007

The following works perfect in 2003.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim shpTemp As Shape
Set shpTemp = Worksheets("Sheet3").Shapes(ListBox1.Value)

With Worksheets("Sheet1")
. Range("A1").Select
Set shpTemp = .Shapes(.Shapes.Count)
shpTemp.Fill.UserPicture ListBox2.Value
End With
End Sub

However, when run in excel 2007 the shape is not filled. If you right click the shape, format shape and click on the "Picture or texture fill" it will fill the shape with the previously selected picture in the userform. I have tried by adding

shpTemp.UserPicture.Fill.Visible = True....................

Change Shape Fill To Picture When Another Cell Equals To 1

May 14, 2014

I have set up a rollover hyperlink so that when I hover over the cell it changes colour and creates a good effect. To do this I have another cell on the sheet that turns to 1 when the cell in question is hovered over.

I need a code so that when that cell displays the number 1. the object (which is rectangle 2) changes from white fill. to a picture I have saved on my desktop.

I cant quite figure out the coding and have been messing about with things like..

if cell range e.g a1 = 1 then rectangle 2 .userpicture " path " else .solid etc.

Create Excel Shape From MapInfo *OR* Make Picture Background Transparent?

Aug 13, 2008

I'm trying to make a map of 14 regions where each region changes brightness depending on values in the worksheets. I think I've got this bit sorted. I'm planning on creating the map using a collection of tessellated shapes or images, and using VBA to alter the properties of each one to create a dynamic map.

The output of the individual maps from MapInfo, our GIS software, is in .png or .jpg. format, and come with a white background. Is there any way to either make the background transparent so multiple shapes can be tessellated effectively, or a way to crop the image to the area's border?

Either that, or does someone know a way to output from MapInfo in such a way to make this possible? (Granted, it's a long shot, but you can't blame a guy for trying...)

Anyway To Make Auto Fill Time Value Static

Jan 24, 2009

I have 2 cell, A1 and B1. When any data is entered into A1, B1 will display the time corresponding to when the data was entered.

I was thinking about function for B1 would be "=IF(A1="","",now()) ". It worked such that it will display the time, however the value in B1 will automatically update itself if I were to randomly input any data in any other cell too.

For example, I input "testing" in A1. B1 display "11:20PM". Ten minutes later, I input "hello" in A2. B1 now display "11:30PM".

Anyone know a way to stop B1 from updating? or only update when new data is entered into A1 only?

Make Button Fill Next Available Cell In Column

May 21, 2009

in my spreadsheet (attached), i want it so that when someone clicks a button, it will fill in the next available cell in column A. For example, when I click on the "Create" button on the green NIPRNet side, then it'll fill in the next available cell in column A (cell A4) with "(N) Created Account". Then, if I click on "Unlock" on the red SIPRNet Side, then it will fill in cell A5 with "(S) Unlocked Account". and so on, and so on, down column A.

At the moment, i have it so that all the cells in column A are dropdown menus. But I want to eliminate the drop-down menus and use buttons instead.

Adapt Current VBA Code To Make More Than One Cell Mandatory To Fill In Before Saving

Mar 30, 2013

I am currently trying to adapt the following code which is in VBA (Sheet1). It currently ensures mandatory cell entry of cell C2 before saving, and if this is not done then it would not save the item into the relevant directory. I would like to adapt this code so that cells B2 to R2 are all mandatory, and if they are not filled in a message box with the cell title (which would be in B1 to R1) would pop up. If the cells are not filled in then it will not save (the same function it carries out for cell c2 currently). The code is attached to a command button, i have tried to make the additional cells mandatory by playing around with the If Trim(.cells(2, 3).value) part of the code with the AND function etc however i have had not had any luck.

Locate A Shape Within A Shape

Jan 24, 2014

On the attached spreadsheet there is two irregular shapes. "Area1" & "Area2". I need to be able to determine which area the "ball" shape is located in. If the ball is in Area1 then "Multiply 8" gets the ball and "Multiply 9" moves to the blue cell "AH39". If the ball is in "AreaB" Multiply 9 gets the ball and "Multiply 8" runs to cell "S37"

I should be able to do the moving of the shapes using all the samples, its determining which area the ball is in is the problem.

In the real spreadsheet i will probably have around 10 different Areas.

Make Userform Show Data From Spreadsheet And Add Delete Or Make New Entry

Jan 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet on sheet 1 with a list of customers and their information. So on column A I have the customer number (i.e. k968, e37, p528,...), on column B i have the customer's name, on column C the street's name, on Column D the house number, on column E the zip code and finally the city on column F.

Right now there are around 600 customers in this list.

I have made a userform with a combobox in which I want to select an existing customer (pulled from the spreadsheet). On the same userform I have textboxes (customer number, name, street, number, zip, city). When I select a customer in the combobox, I want this customer's info to show up in the textboxes. I want to be able to change the info and hit Next to store the changes in the spreadsheet. When I do not select a customer from the combobox, I want to add new info in the textboxes and hit Next to store this info as a new customer. The userform also has a delete button. Then I select a customer in the combobox, this customer (and it's info) should be deleted from the spreadsheet when i hit Delete. So the spreadsheet is variable in length.

If Formula: =IF(D4<0.38,"Thin",IF(0.38<D4<=0.48,"Good Shape","Bad Shape"))

Jun 23, 2009

I have D4=0.42. I thought this formula =IF(D4<0.38,"Thin",IF(0.38<D4<=0.48,"Good shape","Bad shape")) was supposed to give me "Thin" for D4<0.38, "Good shape" for 0.38<D4<=0.48 and "Bad shape" for the contrary, but it only gives me "Bad shape" when D4 is clearly between 0.38 and 0.48.

Activate Formula Without Clicking In Each Row

Jan 1, 2010


Above is the formula that I have, I am putting it into Column L. When I do auto fill every row that has data in J and K the formula goes into as you would expect.

However the formula does not activate until I double click inside each individual row and hit enter. Therefore if the calculation in L4 was 1.0, then 1.0 will appear as the calculation in every row of Column L until I double click in each row individually and press enter.

Scroll Bar Disappears Clicking It

Sep 7, 2007

I have a chart that I just added some dynamic text boxes to. That is the text is linked to a cell so that the text is automatically updated.

I also have a scroll bar that is used to adjust one of the cells. However, now once I click on the scroll bar it just disappears. I can click on the space where it is located and it will appear for a split second. Also, if I scroll down in the worksheet and then back up over the scroll bar the image will be refreshed and I can see the scroll bar again.

I didnt have this problem until I added the dynamic text boxes, it worked fine with static text boxes.

Does anyone have any idea how to get around this, or do I have to stick with the static text boxes?

Changing Cell Data By Just Clicking On It.

Apr 6, 2007

i have made (found) a way to change the data in a cell by clicking on it, however i can only make it go from 1 to 0 or 0 to 1...heres the VB
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next
If (ActiveCell.Value = 1) Then
ActiveCell.Value = ""
If (ActiveCell.Value = "") Then
ActiveCell.Value = 1
End If
End If
End Sub

however, i would like the code to do a different task, i would like it to add one to the number everytime you click on it...i.e. it goes from 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 etc. everytime you click on it...

if it is possible, i would also like it to be restricted to a few cells, which i can determine afterwards and change
