Minimize Userform And Give Focus To Immediate Next Window When Button Clicked

May 10, 2014

I currently have a small userform placed at the bottom right of the screen (with a command button on it) and this opens up on top of excel instances and other applications/windows and it is set so that you can't interact with anything except the userform.

I wanted to minimize the userform and give focus to immediate next window (can be excel or non excel applications) for 10 seconds and then activate/show the userform back again, when the "Button 1" on the userform is clicked.

I tried hiding the userform, but this doesn't give focus to the immediate next window. Below is the code

Private Sub Button_Click()
PauseApp (10)
End Sub

I could only find answers for adding minimize and maximize buttons to userform.

When the button is clicked, it should perform

Step a - Minimize the userform
Step b - Give focus to the next immediate window behind the userform
Step c - Wait for 10 seconds
Step d - Bring back the userform its to state.

Excel 2010 :: Identifying Location Of Form Button

Mar 12, 2012

I am looking for some code which will return the location of the form button which is being clicked on to activate the macro. I would like to avoid using an active.x button if at all possible.

In this way I can use the same macro on a column of buttons to trigger an action based on adjacent cell contents.


Name Button
Mr a Button1
Mr b Button1
Mr c Button1

The aim is to use the button on an index tab and to capture the name next to the button as a sort string for data on a separate tab.

I am running Excel 2010 on Windows Xp.

Excel 2007 :: Form Command Button Label Length

Aug 2, 2013

We just upgraded to Excel 2007 from Excel 2000 and have run into a challenge relating to labeling a form command button. It appears that the length of text for a command button label has been shortened to 31 characters when setting the name using VBA. No such limitation shows up when I manually create such a button.

Following is the code that used to work to create the button and label in VBA (Excel 2000):

ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add(2.25, 13.5, 443.25, 17.25).Select
Selection.OnAction = "PatientSelectedButton"
Selection.Name = "CheckFormButton"

[Code] .....

If I change the string I want to use for the label to 32 characters, or less, this code works (Excel 2007).

ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add(2.25, 13.5, 443.25, 17.25).Select
Selection.OnAction = "PatientSelectedButton"
Selection.Name = "CheckFormButton"

[Code] ....

I have to admit that this is the last item that I thought would break!

Minimize Excel Window But Keep It Visible In Taskbar

Jun 27, 2014

I'm working on an Excel workbook that is opened by a batch file, updates information, copy and pastes that information to PowerPoint, and closes itself after spending two minutes idle. This is all for an employee communication monitor that runs 24/7. However, I don't like that the Excel spreadsheet displays on the monitors for two minutes every time it opens and runs.

Right now I was using the bit of code below to minimize the workbook when it was done copying and pasting the information. It works fine for the monitors, but the application is not visible in the Taskbar.

Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.Visible = False
End Sub

Is there anyway to minimize the workbook while keeping the window visible in the taskbar?

Bring Excel Application Out Of Minimize Before Displaying Warning Message

May 27, 2014

I am using Windows 7 and have a piece of code that brings up a warning message after 20 minutes to warn the user they have been in a workbook for too long.

If they have the Excel application window minimized, is there a way to get Excel to take the application out of minimized mode into max screen, before revealing the message.

Currently when the warning message activates, the excel icon just flashes in the start bar. Some users may not see this.

Here is the code I have so far:

[Code] ....

I have already tried simply adding a piece of code with maximize screen, however this doesn't seem to work.

Form Button On Spreadsheet - Identifying Which Row The Button Is On

Jul 23, 2014

I am imagining a spreadsheet with the equivalent of an info button in each cell of column A. The idea is the user clicks the button to open a User Form containing additional info about the entitity represented by values on that row.

E.g., Row 1 is labels, row 2 is all about Bob, 3 is about Jane, 4 is about Freddy. If the user clicks the info button on row 3 then a user form opens up and displays additonal info about Jane.

I am wondering if there is a way for VB to identify which row the clicked button was on without having to write individual code for each button telling VB which row the button was on.

I am hoping there is some form button property I can reference or interrogate which will give me a cell address; a button.position property or similar. This will obviously save me a lot of coding if VB can dynamically determine which row is being interrogated as there will be a couple of hundred of these to start with, potentially thousands. (I realise Access is a better solution for database interrogation, but I have to work with excel at present).

Ultimately, the user form that the button calls up will have a list box on it and I want the list box to default to the entity on that row, and allow the user to browse the other entities if they want to.

If there isn't a solution for this I will just have a single info button for the users to click that opens the user form and then they can select the entity from a list box. But I would like to offer the "intelligent display" option but don't relish coding the equivalent of several hundred "You clicked button four hundred and seventy six, default to info card for bert".

Using VBA Form In Other Sub Or Assigning To Button

Apr 10, 2012

I've built a form in VBA which is working great. I now want to call it by creating a button in a worksheet and then assigning the Form macro to it so the user can just click a button. I've tried looking for it in the Assign Macro dialog and it isn't there (even though I've declared it as a public sub) and I can't call it from a normal Module as it says it's an undeclared variable.

Button To Form Test Box

Sep 23, 2008

how I can connect a button to a form text box for the purpose of making a simple user friendly search box that will work when the sheet is protected.

So someone enters their criteria into the text box (and it is a text box from the form toolbar - not the drawing toobar) and then hits the button "QUICK SEARCH" and it does what the CTRL+F function does in excel.
