    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    TRy this:

    When editing a toolbar (in Word View, Toolbars, Customize) right-click ona button and select "Copy" from the popup menu. On another button, right-click and select "Paste".

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Does anyone know a way to have access to the toolbar buttons that were in Word 95, without reinstalling Word 95? I thought they were more distinct, but other than installing both versions (95 & 2000), I don't how to get at them.

    I just updated instructions when someone else let me know that they couldn't copy the buttons. I said to load it as a global template. This is necessary, but not sufficient. You also have to open the template to be able to copy the buttons. I don't know why, but that's what it takes.

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    They MIGHT be lurking around in an icon file. I still make use of MORICONS.DLL from Windows 3.x days when I'm changing cons on desktop shortcuts.

    My Fun4X module contains code to search the drives for all *.ICO and experiment with them one at a time. I could drag out the code and perhaps make the icon copyable?

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Thank you. I found THIS resposne after I'd hacked the Excel sheet to show the first 1000 icons on a rather large toolbar so that i could see every icon all at once and select the best icon for the job-at-hand.


    Question1: has anyone found a way to inhibit those icon values for which there is no image?

    Question2: is it possible to produce a toolbar that has JUST the images so that one can browse solely for the purpose of copying?

    The attached file is my hacked version. Below I paste the very slight coding changes I made: (1) changed the lopop to hard-code to 1000 (2) included a status-bar display (3) changed the dimensions of the toolbar

    <pre>
    Function CBShowButtonFaceIDs
    (snip!)

    ' For intCntr = lngIDStart To lngIDStop
    For intCntr = 0 To 1024
    Set cmdNewButton = cbrNewToolbar.Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
    With cmdNewButton
    ' Setting the FaceId property value specifies the appearance
    ' but not the functionality of the button.
    ' Show a running display.
    Application.StatusBar = Str$(intCntr) & " of 1024"
    (snip!)
    With cbrNewToolbar
    .Width = 800
    .Left = 50
    .Top = 100
    .Visible = True
    End With
    (snip!)
    </pre>

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Hi,

    Has anyone compiled any sort of Directory of these icons?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Never mind a directory, has anyone found a way to sort them GRAPHICALLY so that all similar buttons appear together?

    I got tired in the end and hacked the code to deliver all 1024 icons and made the toolbar permanent, then customized it by dragging all the blank faces off the thing.

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    I would have thought it would be slightly difficult to produce VBA code to sort icons together automatically. If Chris could really do that, I'd automatically give him all orts of powers. Like being able to fend off 3 of Eileen's warts. no, on second thought, I don't even think Woody could do that.

    Chris, your hacked code to at least show non-blanked icons sounds useful. Is it worth posting?

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Here 'tis as an attachment.


    C A U T I O N:
    ==============

    If you run the macro (as in the original) it will run my hacked code to re-generate a 1024-button toolbar, complete with blanks. You'll lose the hours of labour I spent removing the blanks.

    The macro works, it's just that you'll get a whole lot of gray space you don't need.

    Start of fby View, Toolbars and choose the ShowFaceIds.

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    On this subject - Say I edit an Icon and use it on a button, where is that saved? I want to be able to create a toolbar at startup and use these icons i edited, but faceid of them is 0.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,

    >Say I edit an Icon and use it on a button, where is that saved?
    If you edit an icon on the "ShowfaceIds" toolbar and user (right-click) Copy button image and then Paste button image to paste the button into a toolbar within your own workbook, I would imagine that the pasted button image is stored within your own workbook.
    Is that what you meant?

    Re: More Icons for Customised Buttons/Menu Entries

    Erm, not sure.

    I right click blank toolbar area and click customise. Then i copy a buttons icon - say the autofilter icon. Then I paste this icon to 3 buttons I have created on a custom toolbar - then I edit these 3 to be different coloured versions of the copied autofilter icon.

    when i close the form the toolbar is removed (to prevent it being there in other workbooks), and the toolbar is created each time I open that workbook - but not sure how to assign the icons I edited.
    Thanks,
