Toolbars going to a more suitable position on screen

Toolbars going to a more suitable position on screen

Toolbars going to a more suitable position on screen

Hi all,

I am working with the commandbars object and my problem is that when I set it display as msoBarTop (as in display at the top of the screen), it starts a new command bar line. What I want it to do is go next to the last visible commandbar (sharing that line). There is plenty of space for it to go in the line up (so much space it looks funny starting a whole new line) and it seems like such a simple thing? Anybody got any ideas?

The biggest hurdle I have had with getting a solutution is that I cant get a visible property from each of the available commandbars (all 98 of them) so I cant set an index of which one my commandbar should go after (thereby being then able to set the rowindex property of my commandbar). Is it possible to get a count of commandbar rows?

thanks for any tips,,


RE: Toolbars going to a more suitable position on screen

Try this bit of code.

Row = 1
For Each cb In CommandBars
    If cb.Visible = True Then
        If cb.RowIndex > Row Then Row = cb.RowIndex
    End If
Next cb

This will find the highest row index.

I hope this helps.

Thanks dude,, looks solid, should work.
Though I wish I could ignore all the commandbars that aren't visible, make it run a bit faster. But then again it only has to happen once at runtime, so it really doesn't matter that much.

thanks again
