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)
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.
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 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 have a created a worksheet button using an image holder (because I couldn't get the image to display properly on a normal command button) and when I click on the button, it distorts the picture because of its default zoom feature. I tried resetting the picture to its original size using the .height and .width properties but this produced an error saying the object doesn't support this property (weird because they were available through the suggestions menu that's available when you're coding). If I could just reload the original image, that would do the trick but I am not sure how to do that without using an file path that would only work on my PC and not on other users'.
Sub test Sheets("Sheet1").Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("") Sheets("Sheet1").Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(CFPicPath + CFPic) Range("A1:G37").CopyPicture Appearance:=xlScreen, Format:=xlPicture Sheets("Sheet2").Select Range("A1").Select ActiveSheet.Paste end sub
I have an Invoice setup for a Car Servicing Garage in excel. It does a few things:
1) On saving the workbook it will take a jpeg screenshot of the worksheet and save it locally
2) The name of the created jpeg file is taken from cell B9
Cell B9 contains the vehicle registration number. So, obviously my problem is that if a the same car comes in on more than one occasion (which happens frequently), the original jpeg will be replaced as the file name is not appended. This will mess up the invoice records. So what I would like is for it to acknowledge that a jpeg file with that name already exists and to just append a "_1", "_2", "_3" etc on the end of the original jpeg file name for the new jpeg file name. I have attached the my excel file so ideally, if someone could insert the necessary code or PM me that would be great.
I'm trying to make this macro work to resize images for our fashion Look Book. In theory, it should work. But of course it does not Here is the code we are using:
Sub BIGcrop() Selection.Height = 507.6 x = Selection.ShapeRange.Width y = x / 2 Z = y - 144
I want all my pictures to have a height of 7.05 inches and a width of 4. The height comes out different everytime depending on the scaling of the template I'm using. I need it to adjust accordingly. I'm open to having the image move into merged cells, as long as it will first adjust the height and then crop the sides (so the orientation stays the same).
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 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 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 am using VBA to create a word document (.docx). This word document contains plain text content controls as well as picture content controls. I then use VBA to automatically select a picture based on the code below
Code: Set oCC = Word.ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("TabPic").Item(1) On Error GoTo TabErrorHandler oCC.Range.InlineShapes.AddPicture Filename:="X:XFERANDREW-TDCD " & LblVL &
After the document has been closed down I try to open it again and I am told "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents."
When I click details it says "Unspecified error" and "Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 0"
If I click ok it says "Word found unreadable content in "". Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you turst the source of this document, click Yes.
Clicking Yes opens the document with all the contents and it is now renamed to Document 1. If I click no it does not open.
i have saved some pictures in my excel sheet. in the next sheet i want that when i write the picture name the picture will appear as vlookup helps in the getting text and nos. can i do this with pictures or i tried to get to much from excel.
