Changing Font Of A String Variable?

Nov 28, 2012

I'm taking some university classes and one of them is called Applications Programming and we have been using excel VBA. I have a project that I'm working on, and it's very basic. Basically we need to create a userform that has 3 option buttons, 4 check boxes, a couple labels and a couple text boxes. It's suppose to be a ice cream selection terminal. Option boxes for basic flavors of ice cream, check boxes for toppings, one text box for user input of number of scoops of ice cream and the last text box to output a reciept/overview of purchase.

So here's the question... I was wondering if there's a way to change the font of a single string variable, or change the font of a word within a string. My output to the saleBox(My receipt overview) is this:

saleBox.Text = ("Thanks you for your Purchase") & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
"You ordered " & numOfScoop & " scoops of " & flavorChoice & "ice cream" & vbCrLf & _ "Topped with: " & toppings & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & total

(not sure how the code is gonna look in the message but I'm sure you get the idea)

i want to be able to change the font for the flavorChoice or toppings variables. They are both strings.

Anyways, I know I can get away with basically what I have there and get full marks, but I like going above what the basics are. If it's kinda complicated.

I'm gonna attach a screenshot, more info is better than not enough right... nevermind its askin for a url!

*** I just now got the idea of putting another textbox over the area that would output the text I want to change and hide the border or something and then change the font of that text box through the properties ***

Excel - UDF That Returns String Of Multiple String Objects / Possible To Color Font?

Sep 19, 2012

I have a udf that returns a string to the cell. The string is made up of multiple string "objects". What I am wondering is if I can set the font color of certain objects so that when the final string is built and returned, the font of those portions is set.

Ex. of simple idea (this is not actually my code, just a way to illustrate. I realize there is no point to this UDF):

VB:

Function StringReturn (Str1 As String, Str2 As String, Str3 As String) As String
StringReturn = Str1 & Str2 & Str3
End Function

Now what if I wanted Str1 and Str3 to be blue, and Str2 to be red for example. So that when the UDF calculates it would return: Str1Str2Str3

I am looking to change the color of my text through a macro, which is fine. But I want to change the color according to a date key. So every time I update my date once a week, a new series is "blacked in". The series has the link already in it, I just need it to change color (to black) every time I update it.

Changing Font Color Based On Change From Previous Value

Jun 18, 2008

I want the order size to be colored red. If the most recent order is larger than the previous order, I want the order size to be colored blue. If the most recent order is the exact same size as the previous order, I want the order to be colored black.

How would I make code that would let me "remember" the previous order size and the most recent order size, and let me compare them to conditionally format the font?

VBA Changing Axis Title Font Size And Typeface

Dec 18, 2012

I've been successful at changing the font size for the Main title and legend using these commands:

Code:
ActiveChart.ChartTitle.Font.Size = 8
ActiveChart.Legend.Font.Size = 8

But the horizontal axis has me stumped. I recorded part of this but can't get it to work:

Code:
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).AxisTitle.Font.Size = 8

How can I change the typeface to Times New Roman for all three and change the font size for the Axis titles? hundreds of charts to change and not enough patience to to it manually.

String Variable To Call Defined Range Variable

Nov 10, 2006

Say you define a public range variable called Inputworksheet and you set it to refer to the worksheet called Inputworksheet. You have a separate string variable with the value Inputworksheet. How do you get this string variable value to call/control the range variable Inputworksheet?

I am getting an excel worksheet value from a lookup function that corresponds to the name of a VBA range variable. Once I have this worksheet value, I would like to use the range variable that has the same name as the worksheet value.

How To Change Font Color In Portion Of Text String

Jul 16, 2013

I have a button (shape) whose text value is linked to cell A1. (In other words, if text in cell A1 changes, the text on the button changes). A concatenation formula exists in cell A1 to "join" together a combination of text and cell values. The formula in A1 looks something like this:

="You have "&B10&" records that contain errors."

I'd like to set the font for the "&B10" portion to be a different color than the rest of the text string so that it stands out from the rest of the text. Obviously this can be done when the text is manually entered into a text box, but when using a formula to populate the text in the text box, it's all or nothing. I'm hoping to find a way to embed a separate font color within the formula string in A1 for just the portion I want to change? For example, all text would be regular/black, but the numeric value generated from cell B10 would be yellow.

VB Function To Return CODE128b Barcode Font String ()

I found what looks to be a BASIC or perhaps early C form of code that will do exactly this, however I am finding it out of my grasp to 'convert' the below code over to VB for Excel, and I was hoping someone would be able to piece it together for me. Code128B is a barcode font that requires a 'computed' start and end bit, as well as a checksum character(s) in order for the barcode to be valid and readable by barcode scanners. This code (in whatever it is written, I don't really know), is said to do just that. Code:..................

Excel 2007 :: Changing Bar Series Color To Adjacent Cell Font Color

Aug 8, 2012

I am trying to use VBA in Excel 2007 to change bar chart series colors. I have found a few posts that link it to a cell background, but I'm struggling to find one that does the font color.

It would be great if I could change the bar chart series to match the color of the text in the A column, so that if I highlighted the value in A1 and changed the text color to orange for whatever reason, the chart updates the value of 1.2 to an orange bar (see below).

T. A1 B1

Sample 1 1.2

Sample 2 2.1

Sample 3 1.7

Sample 4 5.6

Changing The Value Of A String

Mar 4, 2008

I have a string that may consist of one, two or three digits. If it has one digit, I want to append two zeroes to the left of it. If it has two digits, I want to append one zero to the left of it. The string is titled "Result". In this case, the original string was "64" and I wanted to change it to "064".

I tried this, to no avail:

If Len(Result) = 2 Then
zero = 0
Result = (zero & Result)
MsgBox ("The new value for result is " & Result)
End If

-----------------------

How can I alter the value of a string depending up its length (in this case)?

If I use a new variable, the transfer of value works okay, as so:

If Len(Result) = 2 Then
zero = 0
Result1 = (zero & Result)
MsgBox ("The new value for result is " & Result1)
End If

-----------------------

Changing Variable According To For - Next

Apr 18, 2007

Sub Macro1()
Dim blue1 As String, blue2 As String, blue3 As String, num As Integer
blue1 = "one"
blue2 = "two"
blue3 = "three"
For num = 1 To 3
ActiveCell.Value = blue & num
ActiveCell. Offset(0, 1).Select
Next num
End Sub

What I am trying to achieve is to use the appropriate "blue#" variable according to the num variable. For example, when num = 1, I want the macro to use the variable blue1. I am not sure how I should code this.

I have a conditional formula which gives a value based on what the User specifies.

Example of formula is:

=IF($B$1=0,"CONTACT PERSON - OPTIONAL",IF($B$1=5,"CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY",""))

If the result of the string is " CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY " then
- word MANDATORY (not the whole string) should be in RED
- words (FINANCE ONLY) should be in BLUE
- remaining string should be left in BLANK

Not intending to use VBA. Is this possible?
