I have a shape in Excel called Canada. I grouped it with another shape and want this new grouping to be called Canada. But when I enter Canada in the shape name entry box, it doesn't actually change it (as it thinks I am referring to the existing Canada).
I need something like Names manager, but for shapes, not ranges.
I have an autoshape on an sheet, and use this code (it's a circle), to rezise it....
However, it does rezise it, but the shape doesn't keep it's central position. Is there a bit of code I can add to stop the shape from moving? In other words, have the shape rezise around it's center of location?
How do you references the properties of a shape? I am having trouble with 2 different types. Firstly, I have a worksheet with a group of commandbuttons (all added using the Control toolbox) and I want to loop through them changing, for example, the enabled property of each to TRUE.
Secondly, I have some commandbuttons on a worksheet (added using the Forms toolbox). How would I loop through changing, say, the text on the buttons. I used the macro recorder to try to get an idea and got the following:
Sheet1.Shapes("button 15").Select Selection.Characters.Text = "New Text"
Although this works, it is not very elegant, how can it be achieved without selecting the button each time, but rather by directly accessing the property.
I already have the code to import the picture but i would like it to have rounded corner's. The option if you select the picture then tick format, picture shape and it's the second rectangle in. I can not seem to find that particular piece of code for that particular shape. The other comparison is the (reflected beveled, black) option under picture format.
i changed the shape of "Comment" box with edit shape. However when i right click the updated shape and click on Set Autoshape Default it does nothing. When I insert a new comment it is back to old shape.
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.
I have a button on say, sheet1 with text that I want to change after a certain action takes place; however, I was trying to change this text without switching sheets. (switching sheets isn't a big deal, I'm mainly trying to do it my way for the practice). I'm able to select the button on the other sheet without actually switching sheets, but when it comes to changing it's text I get an error. Here is the code I tried:
Sub macro1 () Worksheets("sheet2").Select Worksheets("sheet1").Shapes("Button 2").Select Selection.Characters.Text = "Done" End Sub
Problem with this is it gives cell A1 on sheet2 the "done" text. I also tried this...but it gives the error.
Sub macro1 () Worksheets("sheet2").Select Worksheets("sheet1").Shapes("Button 1").Select With Worksheets("sheet1").Shapes("Button 1") .Characters.Text = "Done" End With End Sub
I have a peice of code that i know is inefficient and it is in danger of becoming too large. I have a spreadsheet that has circles aligned to each cell. There are around 100 in total. The code changes the colour of the shape based on the cell value in which it sits. However, the code needs changing and also it does not automatically update the colour shape even though the cell value changes. I have to manually select a cell and then the formula bar and then press return for it to update.
I am using excel 2010.
This is the code i am using for each shape.
Code: If Range("n12").Value = text Then ActiveSheet.Shapes("Oval 250").Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255) End If
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.
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.
Is there any way that I can get the name of the shape i just clicked to call a procedure?
I have 35 shapes in my Worksheet. Each shape has a different name. Each shape has a macro procedure assigned, wich do almost the same procedure (with just small differences, depending on from wich shape the macro was called).
I want to make just one macro procedure and catch from wich shape the macro was called.
I want to create a shape connecting them and place that shape on a userform. I can create the area without any problems on a worksheet using ActiveSheet.Shapes.BuildFreeform but I don't know how to get it onto my userform.
I have looked through previous posts on similar topics and seen responses that it's as easy as copying the shape from the worksheet and pasting it into an image or frame on the userform. I can copy the shape to the clipboard without any problem. However, when I try to paste it onto an image or frame in a userform I get a message saying that the object doesn't support the use of paste. I've tried using both Selection.Copy and Selection.CopyPicture xlScreen, xlBitmap thinking it might treat a bitmap differently. When I paste I'm trying both UserForm1.Frame1.Picture.Paste and UserForm1.Image1.Picture.Paste but neither work, even though I have blank images and frames with those names on my form.
I have a macro which hides rows in excel. The lines that I am hiding have a "Rounded Rectangle" shape inserted with a hyperlink. I want the shapes to be hidden as well when I hide the rows. However, when hiding the rows, the shapes persist. Is there a way to hide the shapes as well?
I am hiding the rows via the following vba code...
If Range("CurrentVersion").Value = "1" Then Rows("20:25").EntireRow.Hidden = True Else Rows("20:25").EntireRow.Hidden = False End If
I have many spreadsheets that use shapes such as arrows and other symbols. The process for these spreadsheets is to move the shape (arrow for Ex) to indicate a specific location of pain or something like that.
Once the arrow is in position, the spreadsheet is printed to PDF and and a snapshot (in adobe) is "taken" and the picture (with the arrow) is pasted into our application.
My questions is how can I move the shapes back into position when you want to do it all over again.
When I have a few shapes I use
Set sShape = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Right Arrow 6") 2 With sShape .Top = 220 .Left = 91 .Rotation = 20 End With
For each shape
But if I have lots of shapes, 50+, it's a bit more cumbersome.
Can I loop through the shapes when I enable the macros to pick up the current positions and use that information when I do a reset (loop back again to move any shape that were touched back to where it was when the spreadsheet was opened?
Currently I have them close the spreadsheet without saving and just reopen.
