    More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Hi,

    Word2000 offers a small selection of icons to choose for buttons you make, or Pull-down menus you make.

    But this range is quite limited. How can I get Word to offer me a bigger range? How does Word obtain that selection from?

    Pls. advise me.
    Thanks,

    m.q.

    This is a job for <big>FaceIDs!</big> See attached Excel sheet. The id numbers are the same across all Office (Windows?) apps.

    How does one use this spreadsheet to get button faces into Word?

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    I've had the same problem. I downloaded a set of new icons a - .ico file (from memory) - then didn't know how to use it!

    Any ideas would be helpful!

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Very simply:

    Open the faceid sheet. Right click on the Excel toolbar and select Customize. Move the customize window out of the way but leave it open. Now drap and drop any faceid icon onto any toolbar!

    Now, if any one from the VBA forum is lurking, you all can right click on the icon of choice and make note of the faceid number. Use that number in your Commandbar control definition and you'll get the corresponding icon on your VBA created/modified toolbar. For example:

    Dim cBar as Commandbar
    Dim barbutton as CommandbarControl
    Set barbutton = cBar.Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton, ID:=331)

    ID 331 is the 'Close' icon.

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Just to add something to Kevin's suggestion. When you open the faceid.xls worksheet, you will see a dialog box where you can enter two numbers. You can only get 200 buttons at a time, so don't enter 0 to 1000; you'll have to try 0 to 200, 201 to 400, etc.

    Also, you don't have to drag & drop. If you open both Word & Excel, you can right click the button of your choice & choose "copy button image". Then switch to Word & with the customize dialog box open, you can paste the button image.

    One thing I've been meaning to try is to make a table so I can see all the button images at one time. I might be able to do this by creating a toolbar & dropping all the images on the toolbar; haven't tried it yet, but I'd like to overcome the limitation of seeing only 200 at a time.

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Thanks for the tips! Now, from somewhere in the inner recesses of my memory there arises a vague recollection of WOPR at some point or version having some button utility or collection of many buttons. Or am I hallucinating?

    Excellent; thanks.
    Does anyone know the range - ie. min & max numbers that this utility can use?

    The highest I could see was 4387. And a pretty nondescript sort of thing it was too. There are a lot of gaps.

    For a template that has a toolbar with all of the built-in button icons for Office, (which is not listed on my download page, yet) is at
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/download/buttonicons.zip>Button Icons template (zip file)</A>

    Within a couple of days it should appear on <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/download/index.htm>my download page</A> (www.addbalance.com/word/download/).

    Charles

    That is great. I did a little hacking on the code to expand the range of buttons somewhat. Here is the modified code which gives buttons up to the 2000 mark. If you want to go further feel free to mod the 2000 value in the code

    <pre>Sub Generate_Icon_Lists()
    'Based on code from Russell Boyd
    'Modified 27FEB01 by Andrew Lockton
    Dim oPop As CommandBarPopup, oBut As CommandBarButton
    Dim i As Integer, sToolbarName As String
    Dim iStart As Integer, iGroup As Integer, iEnd As Integer

    CustomizationContext = ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate
    sToolbarName = "Icon Buttons Toolbar"
    iStart = 1
    iGroup = 100
    Do While iStart < 2000
    iEnd = iGroup + iStart - 1
    Set oPop = CommandBars(sToolbarName).Controls.Add(Type:=msoCo ntrolPopup)
    oPop.Caption = iStart & "-" & iEnd
    For i = iStart To iEnd
    Set oBut = oPop.Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
    oBut.Caption = i
    oBut.FaceId = i
    Next i
    iStart = iStart + iGroup
    Loop

    End Sub</pre>

    I changed the posted template and it now includes all buttons up to 5000 I think. It is on <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/download/index.htm#LetterheadSystem>my download page</A> (www.addbalance.com/word/download/) if anyone is interested.

    Thanks, but how do I copy icons from your Toolbar to any other toolbar?
