Form Controls - Save Property Changes Set At Runtime?
Jun 30, 2014
Imagine I have a form with a few controls on it. And the controls properties are set up at runtime.
Is there any way possible to save the property changes that were made at runtime to the controls themselves? I mean - short of manually editing all the controls at Design time?
This might be easier to explain by example. See dummy code below. Using this example - I want to find something that will save the Caption of CommandButton1 as "TestMe" (rather than have it only temporarily set at runtime).
I have a sub that I have copied out of a previous workbook where it still works fine. In the previous workbook it was assigned to a button. Now I am trying just to do it as an automatic action when the workbook is closed
It will lock any cell within the specified range that is not blank then protect the worksheet, save the workbook then save a dated archive copy
When I pasted it in to a new workbook I changed the range to A1:AP49 and strFileName
Now when I run it now I get an Error 1004 - Unable to set the Locked property of the Range class.
On Debug this line is highlighted:- c.Locked = c.Value ""
The full code is:-
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) ' ' Lock_cells Macro ' Macro compiled 10/26/2011 by G CARNCROSS
' Locks used cells, saves the workbook then saves a password protected copy with the days date in the file name then closes the workbook ' ' ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="SHES"[code].....
When I try to populate a worksheet with the data from a multicolumn listbox on a userform.
I have references which list index is to go to which cell on the worksheet, however if there is no entry in this list index it is giving me this error.
As the listbox could have 1 line or up to 10 lines populated, I think I need to put an error handling on so that if the entry in listbox index is "" then resume next, or something like that. However everything I have tried doesn't work and I keep getting this error.
Here is the code I have to populate the worksheet from the listbox. There are 7 columns and 10 rows.
How to handle this error?
[CODE] Private Sub cbPrint_click() Call Error_Handling_VBA_On_Error_Resume_Next Dim ws As Worksheet Set ws = Worksheets("Invoice Copy") With ws .Range("B11") = CusName.Value
I am having trouble working through the examples given on other posts for this topic. I have a userform that creates a number of controls at runtime. One group of controls is a series of textboxes and a label underneath that sums the values of the textboxes. When a user changes the value in a textbox the label needs to update the sum. I have read about created class modules to define the event but it is all going over my head.
I have a code that adds a couple of ComboBoxes to a UserForm (the number of ComboBoxes is variable). Now that I want to control a certain ComboBox based on the selected value of another ComboBox (change or click event), how do I do that via VBA code?
I use the following (work in progress) function to add the controls to the userform (usually added to page or frame).
Code: Public Function AddControls(ByVal objTarget As Object, ByVal strUiName As String) Dim rngControls As Excel.Range, rngProperties As Excel.Range Dim rngControl As Excel.Range, rngProperty As Excel.Range Dim objControl As Object
With shtFormUI Set rngControls = .Range("D2:D" & .Range("D" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
Now I need a means of trapping the controls events. I thought I could use a class, e.g.: cFormEvents
Code: Option Explicit
Public WithEvents lblLabel As MSForms.Label Public WithEvents tbxTextBox As MSForms.TextBox Public WithEvents cbxComboBox As MSForms.ComboBox Public WithEvents lbxListBox As MSForms.ListBox Public WithEvents cbtCommandButton As MSForms.CommandButton
Private Sub lblLabel_Click()
It seems I cannot reference the controls because I they are added at runtime. For the given example, I want to run whatever procedure name appears for lblPrimaryContact in column AC (click event). So in my userform module I instantiate the class, but I get an error when I try and reference the control:
Code: Set m_clsFormEvents.lblLabel = Me.lblPrimaryContact Error is "method or data member not found".
Any alternative method to grab the click event for the control added at runtime?
I am using this code (below) to hide certain rows or columns depending on what number is entered. Everything is working fine and I am at the point where I would like to share this excel sheet with others but I would like to lock certain cells so that others cannot alter the formulas. As soon as I lock the cells and then enter values into the unlocked cells, I get the "run-time error '1004': Unable to set the Hidden property of the Range class".
I am using excel 2010 x64.
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B3")) Is Nothing Then If Range("B3").Value = 0 Then Columns("G:P").EntireColumn.Hidden = True Else If Range("B3").Value = 1 Then Columns("H:P").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
I have two linked ComboBoxes on a form. There are 10 Textboxes populated by ComboBox2’s choice. These controls are situated on two frame controls which are used for visual groupings only. I would like to clear everything except Combo1 when Combo1’s value is changed. ( Combo1 is a filtered key list using the dictionary. Script code)
I’ve written a small sub that is called to clear the textboxes, but its not reliable every time. It seems that if the scroll bar is used, and the user chooses Combo1 choice “NUTS/SEEDS”, the boxes aren’t cleared. In fact it will show the “Walnuts” info in Combo2.
I have a text field at the bottom of a user form that remains hidden (i.e. visible = false) until the user clicks the "Ok" button. At that point, I want the text field to appear as the macro is running (it's a large macro, so the text field just says "processing, please wait...").
When I put form controls onto a spread sheet is there anywhere I can easily see and access its properties? Format Control is lacking many values and I do not see them in the vba project toolbar. I am trying to get checkbox locations and checkbox numbers if possible. If there isn't an easy place to see these is it still possible to get the checkbox locations in VBA?
I'm trying to display some result in my sheet and I don't go further of the MsgBOx use. see my vba code
Dim xslt As New MSXML2.XSLTemplate40 Dim xslDoc As New MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument40 Dim xmlDoc As New MSXML2.DOMDocument40 Dim xslProc As IXSLProcessor Dim paramxml As MSXML2.DOMDocument40 xslDoc.async = False xslDoc.Load "c:compara.xsl"
If (xslDoc.parseError.errorCode <> 0) Then Dim myErr Set myErr = xslDoc.parseError MsgBox ("Ha um erro " & myErr.reason) Else Set xslt.stylesheet = xslDoc xmlDoc.async = False xmlDoc.Load "C:Instructional_program.xml".................
My form controls (cmd buttons) and images don't appear or don't work. I was working on a macro to cut and paste a set of cells (protected sheet, I did unprotect it), and I noticed the cmd button tied to this disappeared. It then re-appeared but I couldn't engage it. This is part of a larger workbook that consists of a single page of cmd buttons that release specific worksheets (no activex). These buttons disappeared and re-appeared and don't work either. When I select the button I can see the cell underneath light up. It's like the image is there but nothing else?
The macros run fine from VBA editor. I was thinking the issue had something to do protections? There are more than 5 passwords (set on a worksheet) being used here, there is a fair amount of protecting and unprotecting going on, and I loop through the worksheets several times. Everything was working fine and now I'm stuck. I was getting a the-object-invoked-has-disconnected-from-its-client error related to an "insert cells" command on a co-workers computer, but not on my machine. This is actually what I was trying to solve when it crapped out. I would delete the buttons and create them all again, but I can't even select them to delete them.
I am creating a form that performs several different functions. I would like to force a sequence of these functions by enabling/disabling the controls based on a variable.
For example, a form as two buttons Button1 and Button2. By default, Button1 is ENABLED and Button2 is DISABLED. When Button1 is clicked, a macro is run, where an Enable_Button2variable is initialized to FALSE. The last line of the macro sets the Enable_Button2 variable to TRUE. Then, because Enable_Button2 is now TRUE, Button2 then becomes ENABLED.
I am trying to apply this strategy to a ComboBox, ListBox and CommandButtons. I'm not sure what event to trigger on to poll the Enable_Button2 to enable/disable the control.
I have been working on large project using Excel VBA for several days. My code seems to be working correctly, but I have more to do and now, when I drag an object from the toolbox onto a UserForm, the object is not added to the list of objects on the form. If I go back to versions of the project that I was working on several days ago, there is no problem. If I run "Workbook Rebuilder", the objects that I have dragged onto the form are then added to the object list, but I still can't add new objects to forms from within the VBA editor. Is the project corrupted, or is there some other explanation, and are there any fixes? The code runs about 50 pages, and there are over 20 forms, so redoing from scratch is only a last resort option.
I need to make several exact duplicates of an existing worksheet which includes several form controls. Basic Copy/ Paste the worksheet works well but row heights are different and hidden rows are unhidden. Is there a way to make an EXACT duplicate ?
I have a worksheet with lots of things going on... the end user needs access to the Name field, DOB field, all the scroll and form control option buttons in the 9-question sheet, and the macro-enabled reset button at the bottom. Formulas are sprinkled throughout the worksheet, in columns T through AC... option button links go to AA and AB.
I would like to protect the entire sheet so none of the fields, except where indicated above, could be selected or edited... but when I protect the sheet, I get errors when trying to use you form controls, and the formulas do not respond. And finally, when protected, I get a debug error on the reset macro.
Code: Private Sub Workbook_Open() Form1.Show End Sub
It has worked perfectly for about 2 weeks, well now when I go to open the workbook it gives me the debug error of Run Time error 424 Object Required. I last ran this today at about 8 a.m. no errors, but now about 4 hours later, it is bugging out. What is causing this?
I have a user form that builds a workbook from one template sheet and information in a SQL Server database. The template sheet contains 4 charts that are copied to every new sheet in the workbook, then their data ranges are set through VBA code. For a while the code was working wonderfully. All the necessary sheets were being generated and correctly populated.
Yesterday I added a new module to generate another sheet and pull data from the same SQL Server tables. Now if I run the userform it will work fine once and create all the needed sheets, and set all the charts to the proper ranges. However, if I delete all the created sheets and run the form again, I get:
Runtime Error '-2147417848 (80010108)'
Automation Error The Object Invoked has disconnected from its clients
The error consistantly occurs for the following line of Selection.Copy Destination:=Worksheets("Master").Range("D1")
After the error the selected range still shows up as surrounded by a selection box, but if I change sheets, the box moves to the new sheet. Also I cannot select any new cells in the work book. In order to get Excel to work again I have to End Task from the Task Manager just to get it to close. When I restart Excel and go back to my work book I get the same results, i.e. The form works great once, then Excel dies.
I have tried qualifing all of the objects that can be qualified. I have tried setting all possible varriables to Nothing before exiting my macros. Nothing I have tried, or found suggested so far in the forum works.
