My workbook simply has multiple columns of data which will be summarized visually in a tag cloud (I have the tag cloud part taken care of already creating either a jpg or png, I simply have to change the extension within a batch file to change between picture formats)
I need to have the tag cloud image display and update depending on which column the user would like to summarize (for now I have simplified the issue by only having one of the data columns in my workbook, and will worry about the user selection of the data column to be summarized later).
My Main Question:
Focusing on the image display and updating now, whether it be an ActiveX Image Control or any other way. I've been playing around manually before I try and code it and I can not get either a jpg or png file to attach to the ActiveX control (both of which cause an Invalid Picture Message).
The file name can stay the same if need be and for now I think/assume that'd be easiest (I have my Tag cloud generator just replacing the previously existing image file of the same name).
Would ActiveX control be the way to go for this dynamically changing image?
I have a worksheet that contains a number of ActiveX image controls, which have been scaled to a uniform height to serve as thumbnails.
I have also created a class, where each instance is initialized with one of these image controls, and events (specifically the on click event) are captured. When the user clicks the picture, it opens a userform containg the same picture. However, I'd like that picture to be at its original size, not the scaled-down size.
how can I determine the original dimensions of a picture used in an image control? I can tell that the original resolution is there (by changing the PictureSizeMode to clip), but I can't find any properties that show me how big that image actually is, only ones that return or set the size of the object itself.
I have a number of image controls on a user form, each being loaded with an image from file.
Image1 being loaded with a picture of a bus image2 being loaded with a picture of a school
And so on
Now what I am trying to do is when that image is clicked the name of that image is passed to a textbox
So the action would be
1 image of bus loaded into image control1 , the name of that image being bus.jpg 2 image is clicked 3 the name bus.jpg appears in a text box
Here is what I have so far
Private Sub Image1_Click() DataInput.TextBoxItem.Value = bus.jpg
DataInput.TextBoxItem.Value= Image1.Name - this does not work
Which works but as you can see this is static, as I have supplied the value , were as I would like the clicking action to pick up the name of the jpeg being displayed
So expanding upon this if say image1 is loaded with say a picture of a car instead of a bus
LValue4 = "E:Car.jpg"
Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(LValue4)
Now when it is clicked the name of the image being displayed in image control1 would be Car.jpg
And it is this value I wish to transfer to a text box for now will do more with it later
In addition to this I am not sure if the best idea is to have a number of image controls and load each with an individual picture or have one image control and swap the picture by clicking a command button
I am trying to display an image ("image") on an image control ("Image1") placed in a worksheet ("Sheet1"). The problem is that I want this action to take place when I press a button in a user form. I am trying to use the following code, but it seems that VBA does not recognize the image control ("Image1") in the worksheet.
Private Sub cmdDisplayImage_Click() Dim image As Variant image = ThisWorkbook.Path & "sun.jpg" Sheets("Sheet1").Activate Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(image) End Sub
I need to link an image to a cell value and display the selected image in a new sheet of the same excel. I am attaching samplefile for easy reference. The requirement is, from the workout sheet when I select from drop down list, then the corresponding cell value appears in Parameter sheet in C9 cell.
There are four images copied in Parameter excel. The given image has to be selected and linked to the C9 cell value. Based on the selection that particular image should be shown on Sample Picture sheet. Here based on the selection only the image should reflect here.
I am looking for a way to take the picture name associated with an image ie: (picture 571) and place that picture name in the cell next to the image.
I can see the picture name - it registers in the top left box that usually indicates the cell the cursor is on... and I could manually type that name next to each image.
However my spreadsheet has several thousand rows- each with several columns of information and an image..
I am looking for a way "formula?" to automatically read the image in cell J4 and populate cell K4 with the image name... and so on.
The reason for my request... is I am importing products into a web based shopping cart... to do so I have to export the products to a csv and import that csv into the shopping cart. The process of exporting to a csv- strips away all the images and leaves just data.
I found that I can save the document as an html and that process creates a folder with all the images- saved as (picture 571.jpg) if the resulting csv had the image name... the shopping cart would then look for that image name in my image file and it would populate into the shopping cart appropriately.
This seemed on it's face like a really simple thing to do, I have plenty experience with excel & I thought I'd be able to make cell k4= j4 and tada it would glean the image name & I could simply copy that formula all the way down the sheet & it would be done... but I just cant find the magic button that freely gives up the image name...
Is there a way to have image box display an image with a name matching data from a cell? example: if I type "hello" in cell a1, Image box will load image named "hello". And display new images by changing the name in cell a1. Note: the images will be located in a permanent folder.
I know how to load a picture onto an image control using VBA code, but how do I clear the picture? (NOTE: I am not talking about using the properties window in the VBE, I am talking about coding in VB)
The file I am trying to view is saved as follows: C: Test.gif
What I have done.Added a image control to a dialog box, called image1 Added the following event handler to image1: x = c: test.gif Image1.picture = loadpicture (X)Pressed F5 to test the code and brings up a dialog box with a blank image box.
Not called the userform in the main module (didn't seem much point considering the test failed)
where I am going wrong with this, the correct code?
Also in inputting the address of the file I could not use the C: format as this brought up an error. What is the correct format?
I am able to work out a code to upload pictures from my files using this:
Private Sub cmdfind_Click() Application. ScreenUpdating = False Dim strfind As String Dim rsearch As Range Dim strfolder As String Dim strname As String Dim strpic As String Dim b As Range Set rsearch = Worksheets("m").Range("ap3", Range("ap65536").End(xlUp)) 'define path to images strfolder = "F:SEC FILESMAC2PIC" 'get data from userform strname = frmsearch.txt201.Value 'check if pic exists strpic = strfolder & strname & ".jpg".......................
How do i avoid the 'File Not Found' error if the picture is not available in my file folder?
I want to delete a picture from an image control in a worksheet when pressing a button. So my code is:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Sheets("Sheet1").Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("") End Sub
Well, the problem is that this code only works when I create it. If I save and close the excel file when I open it again and I press the CommandButton1 I get the following error: Run-time error '-2147417848(80010108)' Method "Picture of object "IImage" failed.
I have three worksheets A, B, and C. I'm using the worksheets as a pseudo-database. Worksheet A contains raw data. Worksheet B contains a look-up table. Woksheet merges the information together. Currently I do have the VBA code working to compare the value in WS A to WS B and if they match then it inserts the data into WS C. What I am wanting is a pop-up window that when the value is WS A isn't contained in WS B. This pop up window would contain both an image (to be dynamically pulled from the hard drive) and a text input field. My next step would then take the input field and inset that into WS B.
What I need to do is basically use one sheet from my workbook as a 'template' for all the other sheets, but in a way that when I make a change to a formula on my 'Template' sheet all the other sheets based off of it follow suit. I need to do this because for 100000's of rows, spread across different sheets, I have product information populating Columns A-G, and their unique cost in Column H. I need to apply markups to each product (row), but all of these markups are standard across every product and thus every sheet. So in the perfect world I would be able to edit the formula on Sheet #1, and then have that change be reflected in every other sheet.
So let's say I have something like this on Sheet #1...
Where Column C is a product of A & B...ie. "=A2*B2"
What I need to happen is on Sheet #2 is for it to somehow pull the same formula that is on Sheet #1 in Column C, but apply that formula to 'A2' & 'B2' on sheet #2. And I also want it to update whenever I change the formula in Sheet #1.
If it requires that I set up a template on a completely different workbook, that is perfectly fine as Sheet #1, my 'Template' Sheet, does not hold in actual product information.
I have a document I want to be able to choose to insert a logo in the header across an whole document if it is not going to be printed on letterhead. I want the document to be transportable to different users so I don't want to insert an image with a file address but rather copy it from a hidden sheet. Is it possible to do this? If not, is there a way to hide or unhide images in a header?
I'm trying to writ a small user form with a text box, buttom and image container. The idea is when I type a sign number and click the button the form add the sign number to the address path of the folder containing the images and set the image containers picture to the corisponding file .. this is what I've done so far but I cant get it to work -
