How to place images on toolbar macro buttons using VBA

Ken_Chandler asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
 I am building a toolbar of buttons to activate macros to change colors on a selected object in PPT 2003.

The code below works ok but the buttons created have text on them.  I would like to replace the text with an image of the actual color that will be applied.

I will create the button images, any suggestions on how to create these would be appreciated.

Any help appreciated.




With oButton2
         .DescriptionText = "blue"
          'Tooltip text when mouse if placed over button
         .Caption = "blue kpc"
         'Text if Text in Icon is chosen
         .OnAction = "Button2"
          'Runs the Sub Button1() code when clicked
         .Style = msoButtonIcon
          ' Button displays as icon, not text or both
         .FaceId = 52
          '52 is my favorite pig;
          ' chooses icon #52 from the available Office icons
    End With
