I'm using excel 97 in win95.
I see that most of commandbar buttons are disable after all workbooks are closed.  However, my customized commandbar buttons are not.

I know how to deal with Application.WorkBookBeforeClose event.  However, even this event is triggered, the workbook is not necessary to close since the closing action can be cancel by user.  So, is there something like WorkBookAfterClose event?

Thanks.

Hi Alanpong,

This is some snippet from a newsgroup author is John Guyen, and could be worth a try

"deleteitem" is another sub which deletes the custom menu.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim ans As Integer
If Me.Saved = True Then
  Call deleteitem
   Exit Sub
    Else
      ans = MsgBox("Do you want to save changes to " & ActiveWorkbook.Name &
" ?", vbYesNoCancel + vbQuestion)
      If ans = vbYes Then
      ActiveWorkbook.Save
      ElseIf ans = vbNo Then
     ActiveWorkbook.Saved = True
    ElseIf ans = vbCancel Then
    Cancel = True
   Exit Sub
End If
End If
Call deleteitem
End Sub

instead of the deleteitem you can use a sub to disable the custom toolbar

Hi, Bruintje
From spy++, other commandbar does accept some message when a workbook is closed:
<00001> 00000530 S WM_COMMAND wNotifyCode:EN_UPDATE ...
<00002> 00000530 R WM_COMMAND
<00003> 00000530 S WM_COMMAND wNotifyCode:EN_CHANGE ...
<00004> 00000530 R WM_COMMAND

However, my commandbar can't receive this message. Why?

That's there should be some after closing action done by the application.  And there should be some event which the commandbar may capture.

Do you know how?

Add a class module to your toolbar app and paste the following code:

[code start]===================================

Option Explicit

Public WithEvents App As Application

Private Sub App_NewWorkbook(ByVal Wb As Workbook)
    Debug.Print "New book created: " & Wb.Name
End Sub

Private Sub App_WorkbookBeforeClose(ByVal Wb As Workbook, Cancel As Boolean)
    Debug.Print "Book closed: " & Wb.Name
    Debug.Print "Count: " & Workbooks.Count
    If Workbooks.Count = iCount Then MsgBox "All workbooks are closed!", vbInformation
End Sub

[code end]=====================================

Now add the following code to an existing (or new) module:

[code start]===================================

Dim clsEvents As New EventClassModule
Public iCount As Integer

Sub InitializeApp()
    Set clsEvents.App = Application
    iCount = Workbooks.Count + 1
    Debug.Print "Start:" & iCount
End Sub

[code end]=====================================

Run the sub InitializeApp. Do this also on the startup of your toolbar app.

Now open and close some books. The immediate window will display the status and a message box will show when all workbooks are closed.

btw: I named the class "EventClassModule" and referenced it this way "Dim clsEvents As New EventClassModule". You can change the name of course, as long as you do it in both places.

Have I got the wrong end of the stick? If I put a beforeclose macro in any Excel book such as

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Stop
End Sub

 then try to close the workbook in any way, and then Cancel. the next time I try to close (or exit) the macro is still invoked, however many times you try

macbone2:
Then you have to add that to every workbook...
I think alanpong wants their toolbar to dis/appear whenever all books are closed, whatever books were opened.

Or am I wrong alanpong ?

I choose bruintje's approach which suits my code and lower my effort.
If I start programming in the very beginning, I will choose roverm's approach.
