Word Ribbon Creation
I am trying to create a ribbon using Gunter Avenius' Ribbon Creator. http://www.ribboncreator2010.de/en/
Figuring how to create a ribbon with supplied or custom icons has been quite straightforward. The issue is with linking the buttons created to macros.
How is demonstrated at http://www.ribboncreator2010.de/Vide...N_RunCode.html and the code below should run the required macro.
Public Sub OnActionButton(control As IRibbonControl)
'Callback in XML File "onAction"
' Callback for event button click
' Callback für Button Click
Select Case control.id
MsgBox "Button """ & control.id & """ clicked" & vbCrLf & _
"Es wurde auf Button """ & control.id & """ in Ribbon geklickt", _
The problem I am having is that in the line I have highlighted in red, as soon as I save or even move the cursor away from the end, the parenthesis are stripped by the VB editor. That in turn stops the code working.
This tool looks to be a terrific way of creating a ribbon but unless it also functions it is of no use.
Any ideas what is wrong here or suggestions for a similar tool please?

I've never used Ribbon Creatorl. I have used the Custom UI Editor for Microsoft Office. Instructions for its use and a download link can be found at Customize the Ribbon (It doesn't take rocket science).
I haven't used Call. Do you need parameters included between the parentheses? Would this simply be written as DisplayCoverDetails instead of Call DisplayCoverDetails? It appears you are trying to initiate a separate subroutine here. When you do that without parameters, you do not include parentheses. When you do it with parameters or passed variables, you do it with parentheses.
Sorry, I a duffer at vba. I know enough to get some things done and be dangerous. Hope this helps anyway.
Ribbon Creator looks interesting. I intend to look into it more.
