VBA Activating Code On Mouse Hover

Apr 19, 2013

Is there any way I can activate a sub routine when the user passes the mouse cursor over an activeX object.

For example this activates code when the user interacts with an activeX scroll bar:

Private Sub ScrollBar2_gotfocus()
Dim A, B, C
If OLEObjects("checkbox1").Object.Value = False Then
B = Range("B4").Value
A = (100 - B) / 2
C = (100 - B) / 2
End If

IS there a "gotfocus" equivalent such that code will run if the user simply passes their mouse cursor over the scroll bar EVEN IF they dont click it?

Mouse Hover In A ListBox

May 19, 2009

I have a Listbox with multiple items (Multiselect property is on). However, due to the length of the items not all the parts of it is visible within the listbox.

Is there a way by which if a user hovers the mouse over an item in the ListBox (or selects an item), the whole item is visible (the way it is done in ControlTipText)

Hover Text On Mouse Over On Button

Feb 10, 2012

I've created several buttons that link to macros that I have put in the first row of my sheet. I've freezed the panes so they won't move so you can see the buttons form wherever you are so you can use them. However, I'd like to describe what the buttons do somewhere so it's easy for users to use them...

I was thinking the easiest way to do this would be when you hover over the button it shows text in a a little pop up window...like if you hover over an image sometimes there is text that appears.

Is there VBA code that I can write to make that happen? How would I then tie it to a button? To create the buttons under developer I just did Insert, Form Control, Button...

Show Chart On Mouse Hover Over Cell

Sep 16, 2006

I created 5 charts and instead of having them spread everywhere in the worksheet, I would like them to be "reduced" to some kind of a link contained in a cell (at the botom of the data of each chart). Then, I would like the chart to appear only if I put the mouse on this cell.

Activating VBA Code When Entering A Cell?

May 9, 2014

I am trying to write a small bit of VBA code, so that I can record the row and column of the active cell. I have got it working when I CHANGE the value of the cell, but I need to get the code to fire off when I ENTER the cell.

The code section is below:-

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal target As Range)
'Store the row and column into G1 and G2 for the drop down loading
Call RowNum(target)
End Sub


how I can do this, as I cannot find reference to a Worksheet_Enter function ?

Mouse Click Freezes Screen - Code Still Executes

Jun 16, 2006

it would be possible to have text disappear after being displayed in Excel for a while.

My son and I played around with games (helping create a photographic memory, I told the youngster!) on the thing and until yesterday neither of us noticed that clicking the mouse anywhere (actually just clicking it) causes the screen to "freeze" while the code still happily erases the text in the background.

Hitting ESC allows the screen to cath up to the actual code EVEN THOUGH the ESC key is actually disabled from breaking the code.

Mouse Wheel Scroll In A Combobox On Userform (Lots Of Code)

Sep 16, 2007

I have seen some code around that allows scrolling in listboxes using the mousewheel. I have also seen some code here on the forums about scrolling through a combobox embedded in a workbook. I have tried adapting both of these to suit a combobox on a userform but I cannot get either to work.

Here is the code that I used for the embedded combobox; I added it to the base code for the userform

I then added the following code to a standard module as stated in the forum post;

In the first section of the code there is a msgbox that never gets shown so I don't think code is recognizing the mouse wheel at all.

The second set of code that I used was set up to work with a listbox and it works perfectly with a listbox control. The problem is I cannot adapt it to suit a combobox and if I use a breakpoint to see what is happening Excel freezes.
The following code is added to the userforms code;

Then in a standard module I added the following code;

I added this section of the code;

I think this should only work on a Combobox but a Combobox does not appear to support the TopIndex value. Is there a way this can be setup to work with a userform combobox?
Sorry about the huge amount of code.

Limit Scroll Area - Code Activates Only On Mouse Or Keyboard Input

Apr 21, 2007

I have a worksheet that serves as a navigation page for the workbook and use the following code to restrict from scrolling off the viewable content. The problem is that the code doesn't kick in until either a click if the mouse or keyboard input. This initially leaves the worksheet open for scrolling until input is received.

How do I make this code activate when the wb is loaded? Code in the Thisworkbook module already makes the menu the visible sheet, and code limiting the scroll area is in the sheet module.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
With ActiveSheet
.ScrollArea = "A1:L11"
End With
End Sub

I've also tried using "Range("A1").Select", but it doesn't work either. How can I get this to work correctly?

If this is not possible is there a way to add something like a comment on the cell but have it be an image not text? Currently I have the cell hyper-linked to the image but it would be nice if I did not need a whole other window to pop up.

Bubble Chart: Add To Label Hover Display

Dec 19, 2006

When you hold your mouse over a bubble on a bubble chart, it typically displays the x value, y value and size value. Is there any way to add other captions to display? For example, if my chart is based on sales data and I'm plotting a point based on ease of probability (x axis) and dollar value (y value)....I'd also like to see the initials of the salesperson assigned to that prospect when I hover over the bubble?

Activating Add Ins

Jun 8, 2006

Below is code I use to try to 1. call a sub that take the users to a specified location on a specified shhet, 2. one to remember user menu set up, 3. one to remove tool bars, 4. one to set up menus for operation of my program and code to activate two addins required by my spreadsheet program.

If neither of the analysis addins are selected prior to opening the spreadsheet, when the spreadsheet is opened the appears to work properly except that the 'Start' sub is not initiated. If the spreadsheet is saved, closed and reopened it all works perfectly.

However if both of the analysis addins are selected prior to opening the spreadsheet for the first time all code appears rto work perfectly.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Call Opening_Screen
Call Toolbars_Record_List ' writes to sheet cbars the names of command bars to recall on leaving
Call Toolbars_Remove
Call Endusermode
Application.AddIns("Analysis ToolPak").Installed = True
Application.AddIns("Analysis ToolPak - VBA").Installed = True
Call Start
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Function Activating Without Known Trigger

Aug 2, 2006

I am encountering a strange situation with my Excel 2000. I have a public function, in a module in the VBA project associated with my workbook. But I'm not calling it from nowhere inside the code, or from other macros - it is not being referred anywhere in the workbook. Yet, after I make a slight change in code and not save my changes, when I return to the workbook and select a value from any cell with a validation-list (regardless of the sheet where it resides), that particular function is being executed!

Error 9 When Activating A Worksheet

Mar 23, 2007

All code is called from another workbook

This fails on the second line with a type 9 error, ie worksheet not found

Worksheets("Rent change details").Activate

This works:

Workbooks("RENT_EXPLANATION.xls").Worksheets("Rent change details").Activate

Surely both should work since the default qualifier for the worksheets object is the activeworkbook? This only fails in Excel 2003, in the same app. in Excel 2000 it works.

Selecting Vs Activating Then Copy

Mar 30, 2007

I know there is a simple answer for this, and I did a search but could not find what I am looking for. I am comparing two different workbooks. I loop through the first workbook (oldfile) and then find the corresponding value on the other file. I find the corresponding value using

With Worksheets(1). Range("b2:b" & blah)
Set c = .Find(MyVar, LookIn:=xlValues)

I know the cell address of the value that was found by

firstAddress = c.Address

Now I need to offset a few columns and copy the data. If the cell address was in R1C1 format then I could do this easliy by ActiveCell.Offset(Row, col + Offset).Copy

(where row and col are given from the c.address function. But I don't know the RC value since the c.address provides the value in "A1" format. I do not want to actually go to the cell and then do an offset and copy, since it is a large spreadseet and would be slow. I don't want to do a bunch of string manipulations (unless it easy). Is there a way to have c.address output it's values in R1C1 format? Or is there a different command I could use?

Problem is, I want to go back to the first book and hide the sheet (Email) since other users will be using the macro. I keep getting a run time error 9 'Subscript out of range'.

I have my code below. I have commented out the last few lines that used to work before I had to open a new book first.

Activating Multiple Array Formulas At Once...

May 14, 2009

Does anyone know how to activate a block of different array formulas at once??


N7:Q80 has a total of 296 Array Cells. Each has a unique formula & I cannot just drag to fill these nor can I activate all at once.

In the future, I don't want to have to manually activate them w/F2, CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

btw, Why do I have to press F2? Is that only in Excel 2007? I googled pretty extensively & don't see an option how to only press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. It would be nice not to have to press F2 everytime.

Is there a way to change the page view without activating the sheet? I would like to loop through a bunch of sheets and change the page view.

I currently am aware of the ActiveWindow.View command, but this requires me to first activate the sheet. Is there a similar Sheet.View command, or something like that?
