Command Button Magic On Worksheets

There are two types of buttons: Forms Control Buttons which can be linked to a Macro, and Active-X (OLE Objects) Buttons. This article concerns only Active-X Commandl buttons. There are many times when it is valuable to dynamically insert a button onto a worksheet, and then delete, hide or unhide it. The button is created and VBA code is assigned to it. The following code shows how to create and delete buttons, and how to change their characteristics.

Program Code

Option Explicit

Public Sub UpdateMainPageButtons()
Dim wkbQuotingApplication As Workbook

Set wksMainPage = wkbQuotingApplication.Sheets("CreateQuote")
Set wksQuote = wkbQuotingApplication.Sheets("Quote")

' ************************************************************
' Find Leftmost Column Of Quote
' ************************************************************
intColumnNumberOfQuote = wksQuote.Cells(5, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column

wksMainPage.Unprotect
For Each btnMainPage In wksMainPage.OLEObjects
    strName = btnMainPage.Name
    If btnMainPage.OLEType = xlButtonOnly And strName = "cmdReviewQuoteWorksheet" Then
        If intColumnNumberOfQuote = 1 Then
            btnMainPage.Visible = False
        Else
            btnMainPage.Visible = True
