Pass String Variable To Userform Using Property Procedures
May 29, 2013
I want to display a string to users. Normally I would do that using message boxes. But that would not give me enough control over the font size, and I want to display using font size 48.
I could have used global variables, but that is not a good coding way. The other way of doing that is using property procedures. I could pass a string variable to a Label control on the form and then could format it.
I have been trying to use a multi-select listbox as the argument for a subroutine. For some reason, I keep getting a run time error, type mismatch. I'm baffled because when I define the specific listbox, it works fine, but when I attempt to pass the listbox I get an error.
Public Sub OtherDirectTotal(Expense As ComboBox, CostCat As ComboBox, _ Cost As TextBox, Years As Msforms.listbox) Dim IDC As Double Dim IDCt As Double IDC = Val(UserForm2.txtIDC) / 100 If Years.Selected(0) = True Then If Expense = "Sponsored" Then If UserForm2.ChkODC = False Then Select Case CostCat......................
I have code in a userform that shows another userform with a text box. When the user types text there and presses OK, I want that userform to close (which it does fine), and return back to the original userform (which it does fine), but I want the typed text to be stored in a variable that the code in the original userform can use.
I tried declaring a public variable, "Rresponse1", in each userform's procedure, but that doesn't work. I test for the content of the variable afterward in the original userform and it is empty.
In the original userform I have:
SaveList.Show '(this is the second userform) MsgBox "This is response1: " & Response1 '(to test if the variable is being passed)
In the userform SaveList, in the Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() procedure, I have:
Response1 = SaveList.ListName.Text Application.ScreenUpdating = True MsgBox Response1 '(to test the variable, here it shows the text fine) Unload SaveList
How do I get the Response1 variable to keep its content when control is passed back to the original userform?
I am trying to pass two variables RARD and CARD from Sheet1 'change selection' subroutine to the 'Set ARD Command button click' subroutine. The variable value remain empty and it gives me a 1004 error when I try to execute this line of code:
What I am trying to do is put the text value 'ARD' in the cell on sheet1 which was the original cell I clicked on to open the userform2. To do this I click on the 'Set ARD' button on the userform2 which is then suppose to hide the userform2 and put the 'ARD' text in the selected cell on Sheet1.
I have attached the workbook for review : Therapy Tracker - Tester V2.10 - deleted logo.xlsm
I have a macro that when it runs presents a form that gives the user an option to skip the calculations or continue. If they click Skip then it continues the 'Next CE' . My problem is I can't get the Boolean value to pass from the form to the macro. Here is what I have
The main macro
Sub Dividend_MF() For Each sh In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets( Array("G&I", "Growth")) For Each ce In sh. Range("a5:a" & sh.Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Row) If Not IsEmpty(ce) And Not (IsError(ce.Offset(0, 56))) Then If ce.Offset(0, 56) = "X" Then
how is the best method to link up forms to "talk" to my modules? (aka set variables inside my module script)
the way i understand it with my C++ background, it seems like separate forms and modules act much like private declarations do inside class calls.
I know that in C++ i can declare a friend class to grant access to communication between classes... and i'm wondering if such a procedure is possible in VBA as well...
or to break it down for those not familiar with C++, quite simply, is there a method of code i can implement to have different user forms and modules to talk to eachother? as it seems that any variable declaration is all inclusive to that one object.
The only way i can think of passing variables is by having my code create a worksheet, paste variables one by one into cells, bounce to the destination module, and import those declarations one by one through the cell contents, and remove the sheet after use...
I know i can do it that way, but i really dont want to as that is pretty darn sloppy, and a mickey mouse way to tie my program together.
My question is about passing arguments to UserForm procedures. I've created a Main procedure. Main calls a sub procedure and returns an array. Obviously Main can now use the array. But then Main calls a sub procedure to open my userform.
All of my userform sub procedures need to use the array I created in Main. Do I have to pass the array into all of my userform procedures? Into the UserForm_Show procedure? And then again into UserForm_Initialize? And then again into ComboBox_Change? I don't understand how to give my UserForm procedures the array from my Main procedure.
The first goes through a directory and opens all the files.. after it opens a given file it goes off into a sub-routine to process the data in that file.
I am trying to create a counter in the first sub-routine and then pass that value into the second sub-routine to tell it to put the values out on the next row down.. so the first time through it puts the values out on row 1, next time it puts them out on row 2, etc.
I am trying to pass a string to a function requiring a ParamArray. See below
Code: Declare Function LibFunc1 Lib "FuncAddin" (ByVal vtSheetName, ParamArray Mylist() As Variant) As Long Sub testsub() Year = 2013 Period = December MyStr = "Year#" & MyYear & """", "Period#" & MyPeriod & """"
LibFunc1("Sheet1", MyStr) 'how to declare string so it can be passed as ParaArray?
I am calling a sub that I want to do a SaveCopyAs using a variable as the file name but can't get it to work. The file name displays properly in a message box but when I do a SaveCopyAs it does nothing.
How do I reference a spin button from a variable that I set.
Dim objSpn As Object Dim y As Integer
Set objSpn = ActiveSheet.Shapes("spnWCDate")
y = objSpn.Value
This doesn't work, but hope it explains what I want. It's so I dont have to write the whole object name each time I reference it.
ADDED: I've just noticed that this doesn't work even i do reference the object with the full name. I copied this from a forms spin control that I was using, why can't i store the value of the spin button in a variable?
I have a spreadsheet with about 30 charts on it that I would like to attach a macro to which opens the chart in a form. I've figured out how to do this last part, but am stuck on how to pass a variable to the form code which tells excel which chart to copy. Essentially what I'm doing creating a macro for each chart which would run when that chart is clicked on. This macro is identical for each chart except for the name of the chart being passed.
Sub Chart1_click() ShowChart "Chart 1" End Sub
Sub ShowChart(c As String) frmChart.Show End Sub
In the UserForm_Initialize code located in the userform module, I'd like to call the code which saves and loads the image of the clicked on chart. But here's where I'm stuck. How do I pass c to the code in the form module...e.g, how to pass c to UserForm_Intialize and to ChartZoom? Here's what I have so far...
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize(c As String) ChartZoom c End Sub
Private Sub ChartZoom(c As String)
Dim Cht As Chart Set Cht = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(c).chart Dim CName As String CName = ThisWorkbook.Path & "cht.gif" Cht.Export Filename:=CName, FilterName:="GIF" imgCht.PictureSizeMode = fmPictureSizeModeZoom imgCht.Picture = LoadPicture(CName)
I have a code below which need some input from user. This input will also be serve as the input of the subroutine which i am going to call. However, i do not know how to go assign this input to the subrountine which i will be calling, can anybody help ?
For example, the "input" variable will also be served as an input in subroutine test2 ...
I have a macro that nicely select the named range that the active cell is in. I want to chain on to that macro a macro that has a parameter a range with that active selection. I dont see how to "take" the active selection on the worksheet from within the macro and pass it to another. I assume I could change the cellInRange macro to return a range, however I dont yet see how to do that.
This is the code after editing to make it more clear
Public Sub 1() BookA= activeworkbook. name BookB=Application.Workbooks.Add Workbook(BookB).activate End Sub
Public Sub 2() BookB=Activeworkbook.name
With BookB. sheets(1) .range("A1")=BookA.sheets(1).range("B1") End Sub()
At the end of public sub 1, BookB is the active workbook. What I want to do in public sub 2 is to copy some data from BookA to BookB. Unfortunately, when moving from public sub 1 to public sub 2, BookA needs to be defined again. The code above is the code that I use in my add-ins. I figured out for non add-ins code I can define BookA with thisworkbook.name when BookB is active as I before work with BookA. This does not apply for add-ins as thisworkbook will refer to my add-ins code. Is there anyway of keeping definition of BookA is constant from one public sub to another public sub? This is simplified code. In fact, I can't merge public sub 2 with public sub 1 due to some reason which I don't say it here.

I am trying to pass information that is filled by user in a userform into an excel sheet. Let's say a user would click on a control button in a userform and Macro would ask him what value to store for the first variable. If user clicks one more time then Macro would identify that it was a second click and ask what value to set for a second variable. It is easy to do with limited number of variables, but is it possible that the variable which stores a number of clicks would become a number for variable to store the value?
1 click - a1 = .. 2 click - a2 = .. .... n click - an = ..
I'm just starting to experiment with passing values between workbooks and between modules and so far I've managed to get it working. However, I now can not run the receiving module independently because of the passed value ? Let me explain ...
I use start/end dates within my modules to create date sensitive reports. I have several files (for different departments) and each file has a module called "AbsenceChecker", I have been working on a way to create a Report Master workbook to run and amalgamate the "AbsenceChecker" module from each department.
Sub RunAllLoaders() Dim AbsenceStart As Date, AbsenceEnd As Date Dim PassVar1 As Date, PassVar2 As Date Dim DateStart As Date, DateEnd As Date On Error Resume Next 'start of data validation script continued in private sub.
