Hello,

My custom image does not appear in my Ribbon.  The button appears but without the image.  I've attached a screen shot of the "Custom UI Editor" with my xlam file open.  The image is called BlackFolder.  I tried other images but they did not work either.
<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
	<ribbon startFromScratch="false">
		<tabs>

      <tab id="CustomTab" insertAfterMso="View" label="VR">
        <group id="SIMON" label="SIMON">
          <button id="Button" label="Consolidate" image="BlackFolder" size="large" onAction="ThisWorkbook.DataFix" />
        </group>
      </tab>		
		</tabs>
	</ribbon>
</customUI>

If I am not wrong, there is no image called "BlackFolder". Could you please show me how does it look like? Or choose the right one from this file. You will see all the icons in the File menu ~~> ImageMso 0 and ImageMso 1 (Right at the bottom)

Alternatively, you can download the same file from here

Hi Sid,

I'm using image not imageMso so it's for a custom image not a MS build-in one.  See here they use a custom image in their ribbon.: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc508991%28v=office.11%29.aspx

Thanks

Also I hope you have read this on that link

Note:
In the following procedures, you import an image of your choice into the Custom UI Editor. As a rule of thumb, images should be either 16 X 16 for small controls, or 32 X 32 for large controls, both with 96dpi. These images can be one of the following formats: PNG, BMP, ICO, WMF, JPG, and GIF.

Ok Test this for me. Some files are getting uploaded onto my FTP server so I cannot restart my laptop in win 7 to check this in Office 2010. Also Use the image that I am uploading. Insert that image using Custom UI.

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
	<ribbon>
		<tabs>
			<tab id="MyCustomTab" label="VR" insertAfterMso="TabView">
				<group idMso="GroupClipboard" />
				<group idMso="GroupFont" />
				<group id="customGroup1" label="SIMON">
				<button id="customButton1" label="Consolidate" size="large" onAction="DataFix" image="BlankFolder" />
				
				</group>
				<group idMso="GroupEnterDataAlignment" />
				<group idMso="GroupEnterDataNumber" />
				<group idMso="GroupQuickFormatting" />
			</tab>
		</tabs>
	</ribbon>
</customUI>

BTW, I have tested it in 2007 and it works. :) See snapshot. I will be able to test the above code after an hour once the uploading of files is complete.

UI For 2007

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">
<ribbon>
<tabs>    
<tab id="MyCustomTab" label="VR" insertAfterMso="TabView">			
  	  
<group id="customGroup1" label="SIMON">
<button id="B1A" label="Consolidate" size="large" onAction="DataFix" image="BlankFolder" />
</group>
   
</tab>
</tabs>
</ribbon>
</customUI>

Just saw your second message.  I guess it's an 2010 issue.

That's all I've got at this point.  I'm hoping to see where I went wrong so I don't repeat my mistake.

That does not work either.  Maybe it's something in the .rels file or customUI.xml.

Is it not your original File? If I can get the source (xlsm) then I can get it working for you.

Okay,  I was able to move my code to your sample and rename it.  I also made my xlam work by copying the customu14.rels file from your to mine.

Check this file. I created the xlsm file for you.

If it is working then save it as an Add-In :)
