Toggle Column Visiblity & Button Caption

Nov 15, 2006

On creating a button to perform a macro, we are hiding columns.

Can the macro pick up that

If the columns E:J are hidden, then the text on the button to read 'Unhide'
If the columns E:J and unhidden, then text on the button to read 'Hide'

I am aware I can change what is written on the button via a macro, but can it see that the columns are hidden?

Toolbar Command Button As Toggle Button

Aug 13, 2008

I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.

.State = msobuttondown
.State = msobuttonup

Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.

Add Button Caption To Cell

Jan 9, 2007

Is there a way to program a VBA button so that its cell location is known. For ex., I have a button that says "Fail". I'd like to program it in such a way that when the user clicks on it, the text "Fail" is inserted into the cell next to it. How do I avoid hard-coding the cell reference?

Form Button Caption Not Showing

Aug 31, 2007

However, the text for the command button is hidden. If I do an "Edit Text" on the button, it shows up, but otherwise the button appears blank, even when selected.

Change Button Shape Caption

Feb 14, 2008

How do you references the properties of a shape? I am having trouble with 2 different types. Firstly, I have a worksheet with a group of commandbuttons (all added using the Control toolbox) and I want to loop through them changing, for example, the enabled property of each to TRUE.

Secondly, I have some commandbuttons on a worksheet (added using the Forms toolbox). How would I loop through changing, say, the text on the buttons. I used the macro recorder to try to get an idea and got the following:

Sheet1.Shapes("button 15").Select
Selection.Characters.Text = "New Text"

Although this works, it is not very elegant, how can it be achieved without selecting the button each time, but rather by directly accessing the property.

Alternate Button Macro & Caption Between 2

Apr 23, 2008

I have a worksheet with 2 buttons labelled "Hide" and "Show". As the names imply, they allow the user to hide or show parts of the worksheet. I would like to combine them into one button and have the button label and the associated macro change with each press of the button. Here is what I have so far;

Selection.EntireRow.Hidden = False
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Button 20").Select
Selection.Characters.Text = "HIDE LEADS"
Range("A1").Select 'is there a better way to remove the focus from the button than selecting a cell off the button?
End Sub

Selection.EntireRow.Hidden = True
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Button 20").Select
Selection.Characters.Text = "SHOW LEADS"
End Sub

These macros change the label fine after hiding or unhding the rows but I can't find the proper terms to use to change the macro associated with the button (if there is one?)

Change Output Of Option Button To Caption Or Name

Jan 11, 2008

I'm a complete Excel and VBA newbie and would like to know if it's possible to change the output of OptionButtons from 'TRUE' or 'FALSE' to "1"/"2"/"3"/etc..

The name of each button is:

Rating 1
Rating 2
Rating 3
Rating 4
and so forth..

The idea is for each rating to output its assigned number such that if the user were to click "Rating 1", the result would be "1", "Rating 2" = 2 and so on. I'm trying to design a survey and these results will then be used to calculate an average rating. If this is possible, how would I need to write the code for it?

Go To Sheet Named As Text In Button Caption

Jun 3, 2008

There is a 'Home' page with a button for each employee - clicking the button takes the user to the appropriate employee's timesheet

There is also an 'Add New Employee' button on the home page which brings up a form and allows a new employee to be added.

Each employee has only 1 worksheet (Which is created based on a blank template page)

When the 'Add New Employee' button is clicked a form pops up which ask for name, D.O.B etc. The user fills out the form and clicks ok. The template sheet is then copied, renamed to the employees name, and all relevent fields are added to the template sheet (based on the users input). A button is also generated on the home page with the employees name as a caption and when it is clicked it goes to employees timesheet.

I have almost got this working.

The only problem is this only works once, So For Example say i Add 'John' then i add 'Mary' on the home page i now have 2 buttons with 'John' and 'Mary' on them. The problem is as soon as a second employee is added (Mary), the first employees button(John) is linked to the second employee's Sheet rather than its own(Mary). and after the spreadsheet is closed the buttons dont work at all.

The link below has the spreadsheet i have made so far, you can test it out if my description doesnt make sense or you can see the code behind the 'add new employee' form:

#### 'Add Employee' Button on Add New Employee Form ####

Private Sub cmdadd_Click()

'check for Name
If Trim(Me.EmpName.Value) = "" Then ..............................

How To Get Sound Toggle Button

Apr 7, 2014

Is there a way to get a sound toggle button on excel?

What I need is a button to turn the sound alerts on and off on my spreadsheet. Ideally I'd like a button that either changed an image to the speaker image when on and the speaker image with line through it when off. Is that possible?

If not, is it possible to have a button that just says: "Sound:ON" or "Sound:OFF"?

I guess it could be done with tick boxes, or drop down options.

Toggle Button To Remain On/Off

Feb 11, 2009

I wanted to know how do I keep a toggle button in the on(ture) position after I close the userform? How do I keep the toggle button off(false) positoin after I close the userform? In order words, once I run my macro again, I want it to remain in memory that my toggle button was in the on(true) or off(false)?

For example,I have an application that I am developing which involves some what-if analysis for some projects. There is a command button located on my worksheet. After the command button is clicked, I have include some toggle buttons on a userform for all of the various projects. If I assume that sine projects will not be used, I click the associated toggle buttons. This puts them in the on(true) position. After I close the userform and reclick the command button, my toggle buttons are all back in the off(false) position.

Freeze Panes Toggle Button

Sep 11, 2009

I have a sheet in which I am using freeze panes to keep the header section always visible. I would like to be able to add a toggle button with a macro to the sheet to allow the user to turn the existing freeze panes on/off at will, without the need to navigate the menu bar itself. So far I have not been able to find any info on if/how this may be possible. If anyone has any experience controlling freeze panes via macros, etc.

Error When Put Macro Into Toggle Button

Nov 4, 2011

ToggleButton? I have made this Macro work

Sub group()
Dim i As Integer

Sheets("Operating Income Trending (LOC)").Select
For i = 53 To 2 Step -1
If Cells(7, i) = "" Then
Sheets("Operating Income Trending (LOC)").Columns(i).EntireColumn.Hidden = True

End If
Next i
End Sub

And when i tried to put it into a togglebutton like below:

Private Sub ToggleButton1_Click()
Select Case ToggleButton1.Caption
Case "Group"

Dim i As Integer

Sheets("Operating Income Trending (LOC)").Select

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

Then instead of hiding all the blank columns, it hides almost all the columns, leaving some that are supposed to hide. i could not figure out why as it worked fine as individual macro.

Toggle Button Array Function

Nov 15, 2011

I have 15 toggle buttons that are each tied to a unique value. A toggle button identifies the value as either Active or Inactive. I then want to add a command button that will produce the product of all the Active toggle button values.

For very few togglebuttons I can use a code similar to the following (adjusting for the number of buttons)

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
If ToggleButton1.Value = False Then
Sheets ("CTG Calc").Range("e50 = Sheets("CTG Calc").Range("E47") * Sheets("CTG Calc").Range("E48)
Sheets("CTG Calc").Range("E50) = Sheets("CTG Calc").Range("E47")
End If
End Sub

However, when I get more than just a couple togglebuttons it becomes very unwieldy to have multple If then statments for a True/False option for all 15 buttons. I know there is an easier way to do this with some kind of array function that will look at each toggle button separately anf if the togglebutton value is false will generate the product of all false togglebuttons and ignore the value of all true toggle buttons.

Loop To Get Toggle Button Captions

Dec 23, 2011

I have a userform with 70 toggle buttons, the buttons are arranged in 7 columns and 10 rows, hence I named each button c1r1 to c7r10.

The button captions will change, so I want to take the captions from cell contents: worsheet 'Buttons' and the range A1:A70

I can do this long hand...
c1r1.Caption = Sheets("Buttons").Range("A1")
c1r2.Caption = Sheets("Buttons").Range("A2")
c1r10.Caption = Sheets("Buttons").Range("A10")
c2r1.Caption = Sheets("Buttons").Range("A11")
c2r2.Caption = Sheets("Buttons").Range("A12")
unitl I get to
c7r10.Caption = Sheets("Buttons").Range("A70")

I guess a loop would be better. Here's my code that does not work..

I was just going to insert word 'works' for now until I get the loop to work.

I'd also have to get a loop inside this loop, ie when the column number is 1, it needs to loop through the rows numbers, before it loops to column 2.

I guess I might be able to do that, but I fall at the first hurdle, I get Error 424, object required. I guess it does not like 'buttonaddress.caption'
Do I need to declare or dim 'buttonadress'?

buttoncoladdress = 1
buttonrowaddress = 1
Do Until buttoncoladdress = 7
buttonaddress = "c" & buttoncoladdress & "r" & buttonrowaddress
buttonaddress.Caption = "works"
buttoncoladdress = buttoncoladdress + 1

Here is my code..

Option Explicit
Private Sub ToggleButton1_Click()
With Range("78:88").EntireRow
.Hidden = Not .Hidden

Conditionally Show/Hide Columns & Change Button Caption

Jan 22, 2009

After scouring the entire OzGrid, I have found the following two macros that partly satisfy what I want to achieve. BTW, following two macros are executed on Sheet2 and I want to achieve the following:
On Worksheet_Activate, show columns that match the criteria value in Sheet1.D4 (Sheet1.D4 contains a dropdown list with about 6 text values). In addition to that, if Sheet1.D4 value is blank then show all columns. Right now, it successfully shows columns that match the D4 value but does not work if that D4 value is left blank, instead it hides all columns in range (C:CV). So in short, to the first macro, I need to add the criteria if D4 is blank, then keep the sheet intact and don’t hide anything, just show all columns.Once on that sheet after the Worksheet_Activate event has occurred, with the second macro “ToggleColumnsVisibility” following things need to happen. BTW, currently this macro is assigned to a button (from Forms Toolbar).If cell D4 has a value, then the button’s caption should read “Show All” and when that button is pressed, it should show all columns in the range (C:CV), and the button's caption needs to change to “Show Selected”. In “Show Selected” mode, when that button is pressed, it needs to show all the columns that match the D4 value.If cell D4 is left blank, then the button's caption should read "No Action" and when the button is pressed, it should not do anything but just show all columns.

As you will notice in the header, my experience with Excel is very limited, so detailed instructions will be greatly appreciated. I am also hoping that proposed solution uses some of the efficient/effective ways of using loops such as described below (example taken from this website from this link

Sub TrueOrFalseFaster()
Dim bYesNo As Boolean
Dim i As Integer
bYesNo = (i = 5)
MsgBox bYesNo
End Sub

Sub ToggleTrueOrFalseFaster()
Dim bYesNo As Boolean
bYesNo = Not bYesNo
MsgBox bYesNo
End Sub .........
