How to execute macro when selecting user-defined menu in ribbon


M

Mathieu936

Hi!

I would like to know how to automatically execute a macro when I
select a user-defined tab I created in my Excel ribbon.

I tried onAction tag in my ribbon code for my menu:
<menu id="DropdownBD7020" label="BM7020" size="large"
imageMso="ControlsGallery" onAction="MacroName" >

but that doesn't work.


Thanks!

Matthieu,

I take it you are creating a dropdown in the ribbon in XML.

Can you post the whole XML and the callback code that you have?

I would like to change the line <tab id="SpecialFunctionsTab"
label="My Special Functions"> for <tab id="SpecialFunctionsTab"
label="My Special Functions" onAction="MyMacro">

However it does'nt work. I tried onAction, onClick, onSelect,
onActivate but nothing works :-(

If you use a dynamicMenu tag instead of a menu tag, you name a callback
that runs VBA to generate the menu. Within this VBA you could call the
other code you want to run.

I don't know the details off the top of my head, but i made it work
recently based on what's in the book RibbonX by Hennig, Martin, and Puls.

I tried to create a workbook with your XML, but it didn't generate the
ribbon for some reason.
