I have just noticed that there is no defult event for the running code after updating a label caption. I would like to have like a textbox does (Change,AfterUpdate). to run code on the label caption change. could it be done with activex?? can it be done at all.??
I needed to put a Checkbox on a Worksheet. The standard Checkbox options in Excel FormControl and ActiveX Control were too small. I found a work-around using the following macro attached to an ActiveX Label that was formatted as Wingdings font. The macro basically changes the character from a empty box Wingdings Chr(168) to a checked box Wingdings Chr(254) when the user clicks on the label.
Private Sub Label1_Click() If Label1.Caption = Chr(254) Then Label1.Caption = Chr(168)
But I get this error on an ErrorHandler that I have included in the macro. "An error has occurred. Error number =438. Error Description=Object doesn't support this property or method."
For a form that dynamically creates a series of text boxes and labels, does anyone know how to change the caption of a dynamically created label to display the value of a cell in a worksheet? The cell in the worksheet changes according to input on the text boxes. In the form's code, I have:
Dim newLblFreq As MSForms.Label Set newLblFreq = Me.Controls.Add("Forms.Label.1", "lblfreq" & i, True) newLblFreq.Caption = Range("V" & i).Text & " Hz"
But once the label is created, the caption won't change, even if Range("V" & i) changes...............
I'm amtepting to populate some labels from some predefined strings based on the scrollbar value. I have these codes:
Option Explicit Public Meddelande1 As String, Meddelande2 As String, Meddelande3 As String, Meddelande4 As String, Meddelande5 As String, Meddelande6 As String, Meddelande7 As String, Meddelande8 As String, Meddelande9 As String
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() On Error Resume Next Workbooks("Kontrollsystemet.xls").Close SaveChanges:=False Application. ScreenUpdating = False Workbooks.Open "V:allaBeredningKontrollsystemetKontrollsystemet.xls", ReadOnly:=True Sheets("Meddelanden").Activate Meddelande1 = Range("B2").Text Meddelande2 = Range("B3").Text....................
As an aid, I have a label at the bottom of the form and when a person tabs onto a textbox that labels then states what you are supposed to input into that textbox along with an example. When you tab onto another textbox the caption on the label changes to give another explanation and example.
I attempted to insert an if statement into the userform which states that if a textbox is enabled then the caption of the label = "Example"
If textbox1.enabled = True Then label1.caption = "Explanation 1, Example 1" If textbox2.enabled = True Then label1.caption = "Explanation 2, Example 2" End If End If
I created a userform where if a value from cell x is true then the label caption changes to value in cell z. While everything works fine, the label caption does not seem to appear in my userform until i click on the label. Is there anyway that it can appear automatically once the userform opens?
Also example of my code is:
Private Sub EventDateResult_Click () If Range("A5") = "1" Then Me.EventDateResult.Caption = Range("N4") End If End Sub
its possible to convert a blank string on a label into an integer? My form loads and populates a label.caption with the value of the activecell.value. Sometimes the activecell.value is empty and sometimes has a number in it. I need to do a calculation (label.caption * 2) but if the label.caption is empty it throws an error. I need it to treat an empty label as zero.
I have a listbox that is currently populated via the following code, designed to give a unique list with no repeats.
Code: Sub UserForm_Initialize()Dim UniqueList() As String Dim X As Long, y As Long Dim r As Range, rAll As Range[code].....
This code works fine. NOW, what I need to do, is set individual labels, based on the values in the listbox, BUT, here is the kicker - I don't want to select any of the listbox values. I know there will be seven rows in the listbox that correspond with seven labels.
What I nede to do, is set the first label.caption as the first row in the listbox. The second label as the second row, etc. The listbox only has one column, and I have tried the following code, but it doesnt work.
Code: With UserForm2 .Label1.Caption = .lbxParalegal.List(0, 1) End With
I'd like to: Display the contents of a group of cells in a userform's label's caption. The columns containing the cell's which contents would be displayed are fixed (do not change). The rows will change. I need to reference the Ar, Br and Cr columns (where r is for row) of whichever column I am working on at a given moment.
I have multiple Userforms with labels etc, all controls are similarily named (so I could do this) and I can refer to the Userform dynamically but the Label caption/Controls don't change, any idea's how to get them working.
i've got a form that shows employee data in labels, and i'd like the user to be able to double click a label to change it (using a pop-up form). is it possible to get the pop-up to show after a double click instead of a single click?
I have the following code in a userform_initialize
ComboBox10.AddItem "0" For x = 1 To 13 Step 1 ComboBox10.AddItem Format(x, "0")
Next x ComboBox10.Value = Sheet4. Range("H25").Value
ComboBox10.ListIndex = 0
I would like to make the list index = 13 if the Label.Caption associated with the combobox = "Spare". I have 'Option Explicit' turned on & I get a message 'variable not defined'. How would I code this properly or more to the point I guess, what is the variable I should be using?
Background: I currently have an some VBA code that will kick off a series of calculations on a remote server (7 calcs). I am showing a modeless form, to allow the user to continue to work in Excel while the external calculation is taking place. The code checks every few seconds (using .OnTime) to check the status of the calcs, and as one finishes, it starts the next calc, and updates the form (ie - "Running Calc #3 of 7", etc).
Problem: when I change the label on the form, it gives the form focus. So, if the user is in the middle of doing something, they are suddenly stopped, and have to click back on the spreadsheet to continue.
Questions: Is there a way to update content (label) on a form, without that form getting focus? If not, is there another way to provide updated feedback without disrupting what the user is doing? My fallback is to simply not update the form with progress reports, but since the calcs can take 5min or so, it would be good if they knew things were progressing.
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 am trying to edit a textbox caption in an active chart with a macro and cannot figure out the correct way to reference the text property. I have been successful in editing other items within this chart via the complete code below (i currently have textbox edit commented out)
I know i can set it up with a helper cell to have the textbox reference a range (that updates with the text i want) but i'd to try and edit the text without the use of helper cells to try and make this a little more break resistant.
