RE: [ExcelVBA] Detect which shape "starts" a macro

 

Hi Torstein,

 

Here is an example of identifying the name:

 

Sub IdentifyShape()

Dim strShapeName As String

strShapeName = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller).Name

MsgBox "The shape name is " & strShapeName

End Sub

 

to base code on the name would be:

If strShapeName = "Shape1" Then

                'do stuff

End If

 

If you need to know the names of all shapes, use this:

Sub IdentifyShapes()
Dim strShapeName As String
'Sheets("Sheet1").Select
For Each Shape In ActiveSheet.Shapes
 
    Shape.Select  ' This shows which shape is the current shape
    strShapeName = Shape.Name

 

'If you need to rename a shape to a more meaningful name, use this

   ' If Shape.Name = "Shape1" Then
       ' Shape.Name = "GetNewData"
   'End If
Next

End Sub

 

 

 

I hope that you have a great Christmas and New Year.

 

Tim

Subject: [ExcelVBA] Detect which shape "starts" a macro

 

 

In a worksheet there are several shapes.

 

They are all assigned to the same macro.

 

Is it possible in the macro to detect which skape that was "clicked on" to start the macro?

 

I wish the macro to do different tasks dependent on which shape that started it!

 

Is there a sort of activeShape object?

 

Regards and Merry Christmas to all of you Excelers!
