Transparent Background Of ActiveX Control


I have an ActiveX Label control with a transparent background. When I click on the label the background turns white and stays that way as long as the mouse is over the label, obscuring whatever's underneath. (It also very slightly alters the character spacing.) What object/property controls this? How do I adjust it?

While I'm here, is there an easy programmatic way to assign arbitrary RGB colors to ActiveX controls? The palettes available from the Properties window are fairly limited. A google search for "ActiveX colors" yields a deluge of marketed products, so it's hard to find useful information.

Create Excel Shape From MapInfo *OR* Make Picture Background Transparent?
I'm trying to make a map of 14 regions where each region changes brightness depending on values in the worksheets. I think I've got this bit sorted. I'm planning on creating the map using a collection of tessellated shapes or images, and using VBA to alter the properties of each one to create a dynamic map.

The output of the individual maps from MapInfo, our GIS software, is in .png or .jpg. format, and come with a white background. Is there any way to either make the background transparent so multiple shapes can be tessellated effectively, or a way to crop the image to the area's border?

Either that, or does someone know a way to output from MapInfo in such a way to make this possible? (Granted, it's a long shot, but you can't blame a guy for trying...)

ActiveX Click Control--STOPS When On Another Sheet
RE: Macro ActiveX Click Control--It stops when on another sheet

Macro runs OK when run from menu.

An activeX click button was put on sheet B.

Right click the control, View Code, Paste in code from macro, then click button.

It runs the part of the macro that applies to sheet B, goes to previous sheet A, and then stops. The range select line for the named range on sheet A is highlighted in yellow. It stops when selecting any range or cell on sheet A, like B2.

Any idea why this code does not work on sheet A when ActiveX button is on sheet B? Is there someplace else that the control can go? Using Excel 2000.

See part of code below, which starts on sheet B:

' Macro recorded 11/22/2007

Range("SortAll").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("T2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlNo, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
ActiveSheet.Previous.Select
Range("FormBase").Select (STOPS HERE)
Selection.Copy
Range("Formul").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
ActiveSheet.Next.Select
FormBase is a named dynamic range
FormBase=OFFSET(A!$A$2,0,0,1,MATCH(1E+306,A!$2:$2))

Disable Or Stop ActiveX Control Events Firing
I've several check boxes on a worksheet. Some of the check boxes control the values of other through the _click event. However, when I try to change the value the event attached to the control in questions fires.

application.enableevents = False

would prevent events being fire from within the macro but this only seems to work when I step through the code.

I understand that I could set a global variable to do this and will probably go down this route anyway - but I am interested to know how/when I should be using the EnableEvent method (as I am sure this should be the way that I use it)

Determine Active Control On Multipage Control
How do I determine which control the user is currently modifying on a multipage form (either changing, enterying or exiting the specific control). when I use "userform1.activecontrol" i get "multipage1" as the control name but I need the actual control on the specific active multipage. (also the .TABINDEX is for the multipage regardless of the on-page control) I use a generic data-field change SUBroutine so need the control name (and the TABINDEX) to provide my SELECT CASE.

ActiveX Collections Via VBA
I have a workbook which is a reasonably standard financial model (PL, BS, CF, etc). I have a control worksheet with a number of AcitveX controls (Command Buttons, Toggle Buttons and Combo Boxes) that drive the rest of the model (e.g., depreciation methods, trade terms, etc).

When the workbook opens I want to fill the lists of the various ComboBoxes, but I can't work out how to access JUST THE COMBOBOXES as a defined collection (e.g., MyWkSht.ComboBoxes[Index] or some such), or as a sub-type of a meta-collection (e.g., MyWkSht.Controls with Type="ComboBox"), without referring to them directly by name (e.g., MyWkSht.MyComboBox).

The ComboBoxes are NOT on a UserForm, but are embedded on the sheet as OLE objects.

I really don't want to have to hard-code the combobox names in directly, because I may need to add/remove them as the model develops - and anyway it's just WAY inelegant.

VBA Commands For ActiveX Controls
I have made an Excel sheet that uses ActiveX controls (Option Box and Check Box). I have included a couple of screen caps at the bottom of this post to better explain the layout. Here are the specifics:

There is one Option Box Group labeled "InputOptionGroup" with choices labeled: "FirstOption", "SecondOption", "RefundOption" and "NoneOption".

Adjacent to the Option Box is a series of Check Boxes that correspond to the choice made in the Option Box with the exception of "NoneOption". The Check Boxes are labeled "FirstCheck", "SecondCheck" and "RefundCheck". Each Check Box object belongs to the group labeled "OutputCheckGroup".

I do know that the value of the Option Box choices and Check Boxes can be either True or False depending on if it has been chosen or marked, but I do not know how to incorporate these values into the action script. With that being said, here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

...when "FirstOption" is chosen, clear values of all Check Boxes and place a check mark in "FirstCheck".
...when "SecondOption" is chosen, clear values of all Check Boxes and place a check mark in "SecondCheck".
...when "RefundOption" is chosen, clear values of all Check Boxes and place a check mark in "RefundCheck".
...when "NoneOption" is chosen, clear values of all Check Boxes (no furthur action).

Also, there are a couple more requests:Is there a way to lock the Check Boxes from user input? I want the Check Box values to be altered only by the choice in the Option Box.
Take the "GPIN" field, the one on the right is locked from user input. This particular cell references user input from the "GPIN" field on the left. Is there a way to return a blank value when the input field is blank insted of returning a "0"? If you notice, all fields on the right reference blank values as "0".
In the left "Amount" field, I need to display a "$" followed by the value in the input "Amount" field

Use Activex Combobox In The Worksheet
successfully use Activex combobox on the worksheet, (excel 2003)
without the code from other boxes being triggered at random.

Or should I give this up, and use a form to house these controls? ( I have no Knowledge on this)

I've tried certain IF then statements to protect the excecutable, but it seems, that, even boxes in other books are looked at, with a simple call statement (to a macro in module)

Having a real problem in Isolating these things.

Try to get the code to activate when you select the same Item twice, It seems none of the procedures do this. I made a workaround with using two procedures, but it's a bit clumsy.

ActiveX Combobox Code-run
I've created a workbook on whose main sheet there are three activex comboboxes. The first one contains a list of years, and the second one contains a list of months. The user selects the year, and it goes to its linked cell. The user then selects a month, and using the Combobox_Click event, should run a sequence of 7 macros (i.e. using the "call updateinformation1" macro, which is the first of the seven updateinformation macros).

The sequence of macros ran fine before I added the comboboxes. After adding the comboboxes, the final (7th) macro somehow goes back to the first macro and then causes a "ClearContents method of Range class failed" error on the "Selection.ClearContents" line. These are the first and seventh macros:

Sub updateinformation1()
'clears previous information to make way for new information
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False

Worksheets("Criteria2").Activate
Cells.Select
Selection.ClearContents

I can't for the life of me figure out why it's looping back to the first macro instead of just stopping after the seventh. I have other workbooks that do something similar, and I don't have this problem. Am I missing something?

if I need to post all 7 macros?

Refreshing Activex Textbox
I've built a spreadsheet with quasi-animation for a physics class on projectile motion. In it there's a animated chart showing velocity change as a function of distance. The chart has on it an ActiveX textbox that refers to a cell that contains a formula showing "V_y = {velocity}". I've tried a number of things to get the display of the textbox to change during the animation. If I break the code at the line that updates the cell referenced by the textbox the display changes. But I can't figure out how to get the display to update while the code is running.

ActiveX Command Button Text Looks Bad
I have created an ActiveX command button and the text on the button looks crude. I know that is not very descriptive but I am unsure how to describe it. The text looks jagged and some letters are missing chunks of their letters. The font I have chosen is Calibri.

If I create a Form Controls button I do not have this problem but I want the button to have a particular background color so I do not believe I can use a Form Controls button.

I do not know why the other Calibri text on the worksheet looks fine while the ActiveX Calibri text does not. The attached image shows the two buttons with the top one being the ActiveX button while the bottom is a Forms button.

ActiveX Comboboxes Change To Icon
I have one sheet with about 100 activex controls (and another few 100 on the other sheets in the file), most combobox, but some checkbox as well. There are 30 of them lined up, one in each row. One at a time, one control will basically change to an icon only. If you select it in design mode, the name shows in the range name area of the toolbar, but when you select properties you get the properties for the sheet. Effectively I have an icon with nothing linked to it anymore.

For a while, it seemed to be somewhat random. But for the last few days, it is now cascading down. First combobox #6, then #7, etc. I'm now on #11 or so. Seems to happen when you save then reopen the file, not if you just keep working in the file without closing it.

The macros behind the boxes are still there and run once I recreate the missing box (normally with an Alt-D, and editing the properties; but I've also created from scratch from the toolbar, and used alt-C, alt-V) they work fine. I've run a compile, with no change. Any thoughts on finding the root cause? I thought it might be from blowing up a macro, but I've tried it without even editing a macro and it has the issue.

I know ActiveX combo boxes can be buggy; I'm wondering if anyone has found a way around the text appearance inconsistencies seen in these controls? e.g., sometimes the text is smaller, sometimes it's spaced wider, sometimes it appears at the top of the combo box sometimes in the center.

Customize ActiveX SpinButton Value - Not Decrementing (or Incrementing) Correctly
I have an Active X SpinButton control directly on a spreadsheet that changes the input cell. (The idea is that later on, there'll be a bunch of these input cells, accompanied by their respective SpinButton controls).

I'm allowing the user to define the Min, Max, and Step (SmallChange) value of the SpinButton because (1) I need it to do decimal points and negative numbers and (2) that's what my boss would have wanted.

So I set the Min, Max, SmallChange value in the SpinButton properties to "0" then try to manipulate them in the VBA code.

What went wrong with the code is hard to explain. But basically, when I use the SpinButton to increment or decrement, it didn't quite do it correctly. If I fix the increment part of code, then the decrement part of the code goes wrong and vice versa.

An example: I have Min as "0.5%" in cell B7; Max as "4.5%" in cell B8; and Step (SmallChange) as "0.5%" in cell B9. The Input cell is in cell B10 where user can either type in a value within the defined range (enforced by data validation) or use the SpinButton to change the value.

To replicate the problem: I type in "1.0" in the Input cell and click on the left SpinButton and it would not allow me to go to the defined lower limit (which is 0.5%) in this case.

Here are my codes:

Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinUp()

Dim MyMax As Variant
Dim MyStep As Variant
Dim MyInput As Variant

MyMax = SpinButton1.Max + Range("B8").Value
MyStep = SpinButton1.SmallChange + Range("B9").Value

MyInput = Range("B10").Value...................................

Return 2 Names Of ActiveX Worksheet Command Buttons
On a worksheet, I have several commandbuttons. For many of the buttons the name in the "name box" is different than the name in the "(name)" field under Properties.

Researching this, I found this on msdn2.microsoft.com:

An ActiveX control on a sheet has two names: the name of the shape that contains the control, which you can see in the Name box when you view the sheet, and the code name for the control, which you can see in the cell to the right of (Name) in the Properties window. When you first add a control to a sheet, the shape name and code name match. However, if you change either the shape name or code name, the other isn't automatically changed to match.

So, in my case, one button has:
In the name box: "CommandButton5"
In the (name) properties field: "RunProcess"

The real problem arises when I'm using code to loop through the objects on the worksheet, and build an array of the object names. I'm trying to match the name of the buttons to their click events. In the code, "btn.name" returns the name found in the "name box". The one that I want is the name in the "(name)" field under properties because this is the one that matches the click event.

How can I determine, in code, what is entered in the "(name)" field for an object?

Running Macros In Background
I usually run it on a different server while I work on another available server. However, if I am in Excel on a different server working, I cannot copy and paste in Excel (if I try to copy & paste, I end up pasting data from the macro).
