    Control values explaination (VBA)

    In the following script, what do the ID and Before values set? I assumed that the ID would show the button's placement on a toolbar, but not sure about the Before value. Was trying to copy and paste to add multiple buttons, and found I did not know how to change those two values accordingly for each new button added.

    Set oControl = oBar.Controls.Add(ID:=1, Before:=1)
    oControl.OnAction = "InsertandCopy"
    oControl.Style = msoButtonCaption
    oControl.Caption = "InsertandCopy"
    oControl.TooltipText = "Inserts New Columns/Rows and copies info"
    Set oControl = Nothing
    Set oBar = Nothing

    Thanks - Sat.

    Re: Control values explaination (VBA)

    The ID property of a commandbar control is always 1 for custom controls, and specifies the action for built-in controls. For example, the File | Open... menu item and the corresponding toolbar button both have ID = 23, and the Edit | Copy menu item and the corresponding toolbar button both have ID = 19. If you are creating buttons for user-defined macros, you don't need to specify ID, it will be 1 automatically.

    The Before property specifies where you want to insert the new control created by Add. If you specify Before:=7, the new control will be inserted before (i.e. to the left of or above) the 7th control on the toolbar or menu. Before:=1 means insert at the very beginning. If you omit the Before argument, the control will be added at the end.
