I have a small problem that is of greate importance to me and seem to have a hard time getting any help. I have two modules. in the first module i have code that creates buttons. if a button is pressed then a sub in ANOTHER module is called. that works fine. in that sub i want to check which button has been pressed. therefore i need to look at the tag for the button. it is here that my code fails. i do not know how to do this when the button is created in another module than the sub. that is all i am asking. My code for the first module:
Public Sub Create_Menu()
Dim MyBar As CommandBar
Dim MyPopup As CommandBarPopup
Dim linjeDiagramKnapp As CommandBarButton
Dim stapelDiagramKnapp As CommandBarButton
Set stapelDiagramKnapp = .Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
.Tag = "stapel"
.Caption = "Stapeldiagram"
.Style = msoButtonCaption
''' msoButtonAutomatic, msoButtonIcon, msoButtonCaption,
''' or msoButtonIconandCaption
.BeginGroup = True
.OnAction = "ChartModul1.arrayLoop"
........some more buttons..........
in ANOTHER MODULE:
Public Sub arrayLoop()
Dim obj As Object
Dim currentChart As Object
Select Case CommandBars.ActionControl.Tag
MsgBox ("linje button clicked.")
MsgBox ("stapel button clicked.")
I do not get any tag, it is always "". thus, there must be a probelm with the fact that they are in different modules. please help me! i have know idea how to write this nor how to find info that tells you how to do it. it is really important to me. any help appreciated! thanks alot!
