I've started experiencing a strange problem. The control toolbox keeps appearing when the first page on a multipage userform is activated. I can't figure out what's causing this, and after searching the forum, with no luck, I thought I would see if anybody else is experiencing the same problem, and how to fix it.
i have been having this problem with my version of excel at work and it is driving me crazy. First of all this is excel 2000. For a while now I have been unable to use the control toolbox - when I click it - nothing happens. In the meantime I havent been doing anthing really serious so I used the forms toolbar. I have tried using the control toolbox in word - and it works - just in case someone had been messing around and uninstalling things. Is there anyway that I have hidden it somewhere?
i've gotta demo an Excel app in a few days and this never really bothered me, but someone recently pointed out that it can get distracting for the Control Toolbox to pop in and out randomly. the form is being built for use by other staff, and i suppose it would also be distracting for them if the toolbox arbitrarily appeared here and there. is there a way to turn it off?
I have a userform which has a number of multipage controls nested inside each. So, the parent is Multipage1 with 2 pages. Page 1 of Multipage1 has a second multipage control (Multipage2 which has 4 pages). In Multipage2, page1 there is a 3rd Multipage control (Multipage3 which has 2 pages). In Multipage2, page 2 there is another multipage control (Multipage4 which has 3 pages)...and so on! I know this sounds complicated, but I am trying to get the caption of the selected multipage.
There are commandbuttons in all of the pages, which when clicked need to return the caption name of the multipage where they sit.
I have started the following code, but suspect there must be a better solution:
With Sales If .MultiPage1.Value = 0 Then Hardware_Purchases_Input.TextBox6.Value = .MultiPage1.SelectedItem.Caption & " - " & .MultiPage2.SelectedItem.Caption & " - " & .MultiPage3.SelectedItem.Caption End If End With
I want to access the Properties of a number of controls in a running form, and these controls may or may not be contained in a Frame or a MultiPage.
In particular I want the Top and Left for these controls, which means I have to first find out if the control is contained in a Frame or MultiPage so I can get the reference for Top and Left. I'm ok with doing this for controls inside a Frame, but the MultiPage is eluding me. I get an error when I try to access these controls and it looks like they are actually owned by the individual Pages of the MultiPage.
how do I find out if a given control is contained in a given MultiPage?
How do I determine which control the user is currently modifying on a multipage form (either changing, enterying or exiting the specific control). when I use "userform1.activecontrol" i get "multipage1" as the control name but I need the actual control on the specific active multipage. (also the .TABINDEX is for the multipage regardless of the on-page control) I use a generic data-field change SUBroutine so need the control name (and the TABINDEX) to provide my SELECT CASE. (so every fieldname_CHANGE calls the same SUB [with no parameters])
I have added a button to asign a macro to but for the life of me cant see how to "activate" the button. I am trying to click the button to make the macro run but it keeps selecting the button like it wont come out of design view.
I've just finished writing some vb code that i need to assign to a button. Trouble is I select the control toolbox and put it design mode and all of the icons with the tool box are greyed out. pic attached below

Problem solved: I inadvertently had selected more than one worksheet tab and this was stopping me from placing a button on the worksheet.
I have a spreadsheet with check boxes and a combo box that are set to display in print preview as well as print. I have set up a Print Preview button on this spreadsheet, as well. When you click the Print Preview button and then click close on the preview window and return to the spreadsheet, the control toolbox tools appear out of place and are greatly magnified. Scrolling the screen down and then back makes them appear correctly once again.
I have seen this on this spreadsheet on three different computers. Does anyone have a clue what is going on?
Note, clicking the print preview button on the standard toolbar does not provide the same artifact. It works correctly.
Or for the cheap fix, what is the VB script to move the cursor to a different cell and then return back?
I've built the code for a Template form for data entry of a survey. Through Control Toolbox I've created the form and used several textboxes, option buttons, checkboxes and COMBO boxes this one in turn being my trouble. - Sheet one is called "Data" (this is the place where all inserted information is going to be stored - Sheet two: "Variables" (here is where I keep the required values for the como boxes - inserted manually apriorely... Question: What is the code to assing to the combo boxes in order to have the values from the sheet "Variables" of the range A1:A4 - use the comboboxq2 for referee, I'll do the others P.S. see the code up to now:
Private Sub CommandButtonN_Click() Dim eRow As Long Dim ws As Worksheet Dim inf As WorksheetFunction
Set ws = Worksheets("Data") Set ws = Worksheets("Variables")
' Find first empty row in database survey eRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row ................
I have a bunch of Option Buttons in a worksheet whose properties i need to change by running a macro. For example, I created an OptionButton1 in a worksheet using control toolbox. Now I want to run a macro to change it's name, groupname, linkedcell and caption. I did this macro but it doesn't work:
Sub Label() Dim Code1 As String Dim Link1 As String Dim Form1 As String Dim GroupName1 As String Dim Caption1 As String Worksheets("Section1").Select Form1 = "OptionButton1" Code1 = "FButton1" Link1 = "FLink1" 'Defined in worksheet GroupName1 = "FGroup1" Caption1 = "Choose Function 1" With Worksheets("Section1").Form1 .Name = Code1 .LinkedCell = Link1 .GroupName = GroupName1 .Caption = Caption1 End With End Sub
I am attempting to put in some dropdown boxes and text boxes and maybe some other items using the control toolbox in Excel. After a selection is made I would like to count that particular item. I was using the validation method in which all I needed was the following to sum up the selections made: =SUMIF(G:G,"Monday",I:I)
Now I realize this will not work due to the fact the control toolbox controls are embeded and merley sit on the cells. How do I sum selections made using drop down boxes that are derived from the control toolbox? If someone can give me an example to try or point me to a place to find such information that would be great.
Im trying to create many option buttons on my sheet and then change the GroupName and Name properties but im having no luck in accessing the properties. Here is the code ive got at the moment, could someone tell me how to access these properties. Shown below is a small section of the code, if you require the full code i will happily provide it. This is my first post and im not sure if this code tag thing has been done properly:
n = 18 Call Section_Header Range("D" & n - 1).Value = " Case" For i = 1 To UBound(Name_Case, 1) Range("D" & n + i).Value = Name_Case(i) Range("M" & n + i).Value = Cost_Case(i) ActiveSheet. OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.OptionButton.1", _ Left:=628, Top:=(n - 1) * 15.75 + (1 * 6) + (i - 1) * 15.75, Width:=46.5, Height _ :=15.75).Select Next i
I'm using combo boxes. Initially I used combo boxes from the Forms toolbar, however the text in the combo box was to small. Now I'm using combo boxes from the Control tool bar. However, i would like the link cell to show the number of the entry in the list (like the forms control box) and not the actual entry. Is there an option I need to select in properties, or is there some VB code I can attach to the combo box ?
I created some excel 2003 spreadsheets to use for Fire/Police dispatchers. I have a series of yes/no option buttons that were created using the control toolbox. I have a macro that clears all the blanks where text is added, but want to add a line that clears the option buttons also.
I am creating a bar inventory/"numbers" sheet for a corporation. I have been searching on and off for a week or so to find an answer or a tutorial on what I am looking to implement into this worksheet. I want to take a userform, with a multipage control, and have the control for each tab, show me a different part of the worksheets. For instance, the first tab would be inventory, the second tab would be ordering, the third tab would be weekly numbers, etc ... I am wondering how to "add ranges to the multipage control in order to make it a "viewer". I have found tutorials on how to print, enter info into the form and save it to the sheets using a button, but I can't find a tutorial on how to implement the control on how to make tabs show the ranges. Can someone point me in the right direction on a tutorial, or maybe if willing a small spreadsheet with a mulitpage control on it, showing how to add the ranges from different worksheets?
UserForm1, page5. From Combobox1 I choose a city and the textboxes give me the values from Sheet3. I'd like to color in green the smallest value. for example, if for LHR I find for A-4214, B-4420, C-3127 => value 3127 to be green. The problem is I have more textboxes in other pages and some of them are colored in green also. Is possible to reffer to these textboxes from page5 only?
I'm using a multipage control on a form that has the style set to fmTabStyleButtons. So it uses buttons instead of tabs. I named one of my buttons (tabs) to Close. Can I set this up to where just pressing the Close button will cause it to exit the app not just go to that page?
I have a userform with a multipage issue. On page1 I have a command button that formats cells. On page2 I have textbox1 with a fixed number, textbox2 that counts the number of formatted cells (from the command button on page 1) and textbox3 that's going to sum textbox1 and 2. So here's the issue. Lets say I'm on page2 viewing the textboxes, if I switch back to page1 and format additional cells and then switch back to page2, textbox2 does not update with the additional cells formatted. I always need to close the userform and reopen it for the changes to take place.
which of these toolbars provides the better 'controls' to paste onto worksheets (as opposed to UserForms)? For those wondering, both toolbars contain some apparently similar controls, e.g., combo box, radio button, spinner etc. but there are differences in their behaviour it would seem...
