If I add a checkbox via code at run-time, how can add code to fire when the user clicks on it?

In VB.net I would use addhandler, but I know this isnt what I need to do with VBA.

Reading up, I thought I could just use chkNew.onClick myMethod(), but that doesnt work either.

Does anyone have an exampe of how to add a handler to a CheckBox in VBA?

Thank you

What kind of checkbox (Forms or ActiveX), and where are you adding it?

If it's Forms, then you set its OnAction property to the name of the macro you want to run.

I'm using MSForms.CheckBox, but looking at the intellisence there is no inaction property I can assign my macro to. I need to be able to add it by code.

Where are you adding it to? A Userform or a worksheet?

In that case, your best bet is to use a class with a Checkbox variable declared WithEvents and put your Click code in that. Then as you add each checkbox, create an instance of the class, assign the checkbox to the class's variable and then add the class instance to a Collection (declared at module level in the userform).
Do you need sample code for that?

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
      Dim newCheckBox  As MSForms.CheckBox
        
        Set newCheckBox = Frame1.Controls.Add("Forms.CheckBox.1")
        newCheckBox.Caption = "Hello " & x
        newCheckBox.Top = x * 30
        newCheckBox.Left = 10
        
        newCheckBox.OnAction = "Checkbox_Toggle"

Class module called CheckboxHandler:
Option Explicit

Public WithEvents cb As MSForms.CheckBox

Private Sub cb_Click()
   MsgBox "You clicked checkbox: " & cb.Name
End Sub

Open in new window


Userform code:
Option Explicit

Dim colCBHandlers As Collection

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
   Dim objHandler As CheckboxHandler
 Dim x As Integer
   Set colCBHandlers = New Collection
   
    For x = 1 To 100 Step 1
        Dim newCheckBox  As MSForms.CheckBox
        Set newCheckBox = Me.Frame1.Controls.Add("Forms.CheckBox.1")
        newCheckBox.Caption = "Hello " & x
        newCheckBox.Top = x * 30
        newCheckBox.Left = 10
        ' create new handler
        Set objHandler = New CheckboxHandler
        ' assign checkbox
        Set objHandler.cb = newCheckBox
        colCBHandlers.Add objHandler
    Next x

End Sub
