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.

Toolbar Command Button

Aug 20, 2008

I am running Excel 2003 and in my workbook I created a macro and assigned it to a toolbar comman button, "Copy Filtered Data". This macro copies the visible data into a new workbook.

This works well but others in my company will also be accessing this workbook from a sharepoint and I discovered that when they open it this command button is not on their toolbar.

Would anyone know what I need to do to have this button load on the toolbar when the workbook opens?

Also, I would like this button to either unload or greyout when the workbook that this button is intended for is closed.

Command Button Click Creates New Rows Above Button?

Nov 8, 2012

I currently am using a form button to create new rows.

I need two different kind of buttons. I have a button that does this-

Sub InsertRow()
'this inserts a row where the button is clicked.
Dim r As Range


However, when I try and create these codes using a Command button (I need it for the color), I get the error

"unable to get the buttons property of the Worksheet class"

P.S one other thing, say the button is in row 3, and Cells A1 and A2 are merged, when you click the button in row 3, it should extend the merge to A3.

Command Button Name / Sort By Command Button

Feb 3, 2010

How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons

e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.

Run Command Button Click From Another Command Button

Aug 31, 2007

I have a userform with a button on it named But1. Is it possible to store But1 into a variable then activate the But1_Click action using a variable?

Dim strButname As String
strButname ="But1"

Now, how would you activate the But1_Click method using strButname variable. With listboxes you can use the Control(strListboxName) methodology?

This doesn't work, but gives you an idea of what I am trying to do.

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

Password Protect A Toggle Button

May 19, 2009

I've got a toggle button that is clicked to hide the score details (using a macro). I need this button to have some sort of password protection because only I should be able to see the score!

I've tried to use the '.protect .unprotect' function, but its not doing exactly what I want it to so Im not sure I even need it there!

Here is my code..

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

Initialize Toggle Button Value When Opening Workbook?

Jan 10, 2010

When opening a workbook, I'd like to set a Toggle Button's value to TRUE. I already have code Workbook_Open() procedure which resides in the ThisWorkbook module. This Workbook_Open() procedure already does lots of other things. I would like to add code in Workbook_Open() that would set the Toggle Button's initial value (TRUE).

The code for the Toggle Button resides in one of the Sheet modules (not the ThisWorkbook module). I attempted to set this toggle button value using the following code (see row 10), but it does not pass the compiler due to not being a defined variable.

ActiveX Toggle Button Changes Cell Color?

Oct 5, 2012

I am creating a status board at work... Kinda like an In/out board.

I created a toggle button and using it as the persons named. I want them to be able to go to the excel sheet on our intranet. Be able to click their name (toggle button) and it change the off cell from red to white and the on cell from white to green. Then they can save the excel sheet and close out for the next person.

edit: I would also need it to go back once they click it when they leave.

I have created the active x button, but so far the only thing I can do is get the 1 cell it effects to say true/false.

Toggle Button To Hide/unhide Rows

Jun 12, 2007

I have a command button that hides rows based on zero value in Col B then a 2nd btn to unhide those rows. The challenge is that as I want this code for several workbooks that will have data of varying row lengths & not all the zero values will be in the exact same place for each workbook or each month. Having done a little research on the Board (& googled) I have not found an answer to my challenge. So I am sure someone will point me in the right direction -

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
BeginRow = 3
EndRow = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
ChkCol = 2
Range("B3:B" & EndRow).EntireRow.Hidden = True

For RowCnt = BeginRow To EndRow
If Cells(RowCnt, ChkCol).Value 0 Then
Cells(RowCnt, ChkCol).EntireRow.Hidden = False
End If
Next RowCnt

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?

Save As Toolbar Button

Feb 17, 2009

I have created a toolbar button to save a file as a specific name based on a cell value. The macro runs fine, but the button changes priority when the new file is saved.

i.e. the original file is called "quoting_tool" and the newly created file is called "quoting_tool_'B3'". However, the next time I click this button in the original file, it requests the new file as the home of the toolbar button. I have tried saving the original file after adding the button, but that doesn't work.
