Max Length Of ActiveX Control Name

Mar 16, 2012

What the max length of an ActivX Control name would be. I mean the name that you would use in coding something, not the actual caption name of the button. IN this case I am using a radio button.

Based on that I would like to create random IDs to assign to the button. I know how to do this in the cell formula but not in code.

How To Use ActiveX Control Checkbox

Jan 9, 2012

I am trying to create a workbook where the first worksheet has a list of Checkboxes and each checkbox 'unhides' or 'hides' subsequent worksheets within the workbook, depending on whether the box is checked. I can make the checkbox, I can record the macro.

Sub Test_checkbox()
' Test_checkbox Macro
Sheets("Dist").Visible = True
End Sub

How do I link them together? Ideally, I'd like to have my boss be able to 'play' with which sheets are visible (check, uncheck, check, uncheck, etc) .

ActiveX Control Can't Create Object

Transparent Background Of ActiveX Control

Jan 6, 2010

I have an ActiveX Label control with a transparent background. When I click on the label the background turns white and stays that way as long as the mouse is over the label, obscuring whatever's underneath. (It also very slightly alters the character spacing.) What object/property controls this? How do I adjust it?

While I'm here, is there an easy programmatic way to assign arbitrary RGB colors to ActiveX controls? The palettes available from the Properties window are fairly limited. A google search for "ActiveX colors" yields a deluge of marketed products, so it's hard to find useful information.

Replacing Forms Control Combobox With ActiveX

Aug 13, 2014

Since Form Controls comboboxes don't allow font editing, I need to switch to ActiveX...

The combo box values come from the following cell range:

tbl_arrays!$I$3:$I$6

Those values are, from top to bottom: "select distance", "50 Miles", "100 Miles", "150 Miles".

The following macro is also assigned to the combobox:

[Code].....

I have two issues. The first is that the macro doesn't seem to be working. It is supposed to filter a list of cities within 50, 100 and 150 miles of a user input zip or city. The original Forms Control combo works but not ActiveX after I put the code in the change event:

[Code] .........

The second issue is that the last clicked value in the ActiveX comboBox replaces the top one.

Ex: from top to bottom, the combobox should display:

[Code] ........

but if the user clicks "100 Miles", the combobox is then going to display

[Code] ......

If the user then select "50 Miles", the box displays:

[Code] ........

ActiveX Control Button Changes Size For No Reason

I have created several macros where i use an active-X control button. This button is pressed and the macro begins...........but every now and again this button changes size for no apparent reason.

I have read countless articles/posts about what "may" be causing the problem but i have never read anything which clearly identifies the soln to this problem and the problem has been out there for years. To make matters worse the problem can not be duplicated on any regular frequency that i am aware of............so its not like i can post a file that will show the problem.............

ActiveX Control Button Not Copying And Pasting?

May 14, 2014

I am using the following code to copy a template to a new worksheet each month:

Code:
Sub CopyTemplateNewMonth()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim SourceRange As Range, DestRange As Range

[Code]....

Everything copies over except an Activex Control button. I also have form control buttons with macros assigned to them, and they copy & paste just fine. The code assigned to the ActiveX button also copy's & paste's just fine...but the button itself does not.

ActiveX Click Control--STOPS When On Another Sheet

Nov 23, 2007

RE: Macro ActiveX Click Control--It stops when on another sheet

Macro runs OK when run from menu.

An activeX click button was put on sheet B.

Right click the control, View Code, Paste in code from macro, then click button.

It runs the part of the macro that applies to sheet B, goes to previous sheet A, and then stops. The range select line for the named range on sheet A is highlighted in yellow. It stops when selecting any range or cell on sheet A, like B2.

Any idea why this code does not work on sheet A when ActiveX button is on sheet B? Is there someplace else that the control can go? Using Excel 2000.

See part of code below, which starts on sheet B:

' Macro recorded 11/22/2007

Range("SortAll").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("T2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlNo, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
ActiveSheet.Previous.Select
Range("FormBase").Select (STOPS HERE)
Selection.Copy
Range("Formul").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
ActiveSheet.Next.Select
FormBase is a named dynamic range
FormBase=OFFSET(A!$A$2,0,0,1,MATCH(1E+306,A!$2:$2))

VBA / Creating And Attaching New Sub To Newly Created ActiveX Control?

Jun 2, 2014

After programmatically creating a new activex checkbox, I want to create a sub for it's click event. I have given the object a name, and fortunately the code for it's click event is a one-line call of another sub, but how?

The sub would look like the following except be named after the new control (obviously), and yes, it is just the number in the name that changes:

Multiple Instances Of Excel And ActiveX Control Object

Feb 21, 2014

I have an excel application which works extremely well in one single instancec. It has a bunch of ActiveX control objects on the worksheet. Generally I call them by convention Sheet1.Cmd.show.

I have since experimented with having multiple instances of excel running on the machine. I start to notice something very strange. The first instance I open and run all the activeX buttons are all clickable. As soon as I open a second instance of an excel program all the activeX buttons on the worksheet are not even clickable. They are enabled by my program, but not clickable as if they were not there at all.

I also try open a normal excel workbook then followed by my excel program in a second instance. Even though the first excel file does not utilize any activeX objects all my buttons on the subsequent instance are not clickable.

The weird thing is all my activeX control objects on a userforms are still clickable and call to all my planned events in my program. It is just all the activeX controls on my worksheet that do not have any reaction at all.

I always think when one opens a new instance it will be totally indpendent and would even occupy another CPU if my machine has more in it. If they are truly independent then I am at a loss to understand why my activeX controls would fail to work at all.

Excel 2007 :: Insert And Link ActiveX Control From VBA

Mar 15, 2012

I have a form that collects four pieces of information from the user and places each into columns A, B, C, D on a sheet. I would like to automatically add an option button to column E so that a user could select it and then click a control button to delete the corresponding row.

Is this possible or is there maybe a better way to do this in Excel 2007.

Can ActiveX Control Button Macro Be Placed In Regular Module

Feb 20, 2014

Can Active-X control button macro be placed in a regular module, or does it always have to reside in the sheet module?
Or is the only way to accomplish this is to have the macro in the regular module being called from the button macro in the sheet module?

I somehow seem to remember a way to move/assign an Active-X ControlButton macro to a regular module, but maybe I'm wrong?

Determine Original Dimensions Of ActiveX Image Control

May 12, 2014

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.

Disable Or Stop ActiveX Control Events Firing

Sep 8, 2006

I've several check boxes on a worksheet. Some of the check boxes control the values of other through the _click event. However, when I try to change the value the event attached to the control in questions fires.

application.enableevents = False

would prevent events being fire from within the macro but this only seems to work when I step through the code.

I understand that I could set a global variable to do this and will probably go down this route anyway - but I am interested to know how/when I should be using the EnableEvent method (as I am sure this should be the way that I use it)

ActiveX Control Text Box Inserted Which Is Not Letting To Fetch The Desirous Result?

Apr 20, 2014

In A1 there is an ActiveX Control Text Box inserted, now in A1 cell which is beneath this text box contain the formula that if A9 is blank than "Customer Name" should appear else it should show blank. But the problem is when I write some thing in this text box which is connected with A9, formula works as "Customer Name" disappears but when I delete in text box it simply acts as if something is still present in cell A9 and formula does not comeback to "Customer Name" again & therefore in order to appear "Customer Name" I have to go to A9 and press delete button to get the desirous result from the formula.

Readers are requested to make this formula work becz the situation in which this formula has been invented is well fitted and not other formula can supplant it.

Using Data Validation To Control Text Length W/Vlookup

Mar 26, 2009

Can anyone provide a formula to be used in data validation that will control text length (6 digits) and restrict duplicate entries. The best formula will prevent anything other that 6 digits, but question the user regarding a duplicate entry.

For example: if the user enters 123456 no problem, but if 12345 is entered, Excel validation would not allow. If the user enters 123456 again, Excel's validation window would allow but the window will pop-up and ask to confirm.

Dynamically Updating Image (ActiveX Image Control)

Oct 26, 2011

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?

Give Cell A Value Based On Length Of Row (variable Row Length)

Jan 9, 2010

My worksheet contains data with the reaction times on a psychological test. Each respondent in the test has 280 rows in my excel sheet.

The 'perfect' length of the row, is from A to M. When an error is made in the test, the length of the row will increase. So the error length can be A to AA.

For me it is important to analyse the error. So I would like to give a perfect row length, the value 1, and an error row length a value 2.

So, in conclusion:

If:
Cell length = A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B Cof that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 1

Cell length >= A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B C of that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 2

I have populated the TreeView control with data and what I want to be able to do is to drag the nodes off the TreeView control to the spreadsheet control.

I can drag onto a normal worksheet but not onto the spreadsheet control (the no drop mouse pointer keeps showing).

Determine Active Control On Multipage Control

Oct 4, 2007

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])

ActiveX Collections Via VBA

Apr 19, 2006

I have a workbook which is a reasonably standard financial model (PL, BS, CF, etc). I have a control worksheet with a number of AcitveX controls (Command Buttons, Toggle Buttons and Combo Boxes) that drive the rest of the model (e.g., depreciation methods, trade terms, etc).

When the workbook opens I want to fill the lists of the various ComboBoxes, but I can't work out how to access JUST THE COMBOBOXES as a defined collection (e.g., MyWkSht.ComboBoxes[Index] or some such), or as a sub-type of a meta-collection (e.g., MyWkSht.Controls with Type="ComboBox"), without referring to them directly by name (e.g., MyWkSht.MyComboBox).

The ComboBoxes are NOT on a UserForm, but are embedded on the sheet as OLE objects.

I really don't want to have to hard-code the combobox names in directly, because I may need to add/remove them as the model develops - and anyway it's just WAY inelegant.

VBA Calendar Control Without Control

Has anyone out their ever seen an Calendar type of control totally built in an Excel vba UserForm?

My problem that Iíve tried to resolve for some time is utilizing some type of pop-up calendar to eliminate format issues in my published Excel forms. I have tried a number of calendar controls but all have to be registered on the local machine and this cannot be guarantied for every machine.

If someone could direct me to a vba UserForm that has this built in that might do the trick. Or is their another way to deal with this?

Refreshing Activex Textbox

Apr 6, 2009

I've built a spreadsheet with quasi-animation for a physics class on projectile motion. In it there's a animated chart showing velocity change as a function of distance. The chart has on it an ActiveX textbox that refers to a cell that contains a formula showing "V_y = {velocity}". I've tried a number of things to get the display of the textbox to change during the animation. If I break the code at the line that updates the cell referenced by the textbox the display changes. But I can't figure out how to get the display to update while the code is running.

ActiveX Listbox On Worksheet

Sep 29, 2012

I have two listboxes on a worksheet and using VBA to load values into the listbox. I also have a combobox that is used to determine what values are to be displayed in the listboxes. I select a value from the dropdown list and depending on the value selected, a list gets populated in the listbox. This works just fine.

The problem I'm having is that when I adjust the zoom on the worksheet, 75% for example, the listbox automatically changes the width when new values are displayed. I try using the listbox1.width = xxx, to keep the width in place, but that doesn't really work.
