command button color to change

Hello All,

How can the color of a button changed/ like I click on the button THIS, and it changes colors to whatever I assign? Further, I tried to change the color here but its throwing errors..
Further, is a there a full list of color codes (if you can provide) that I can use to change on the command buttons?

Thanks

I don't think you can change the color of a MSForms command button, however, you CAN insert a shape, then assign a macro to that, and certainly you can change a shape's interior color.

If you use an ActiveX command button, you can change the back color.

As far as I know you can't change the colour of a Forms command button, which is what you have on the worksheet.

If it was an ActiveX command button you could use this in the sheet module.
CommandButton1.BackColor = vbCyan

Open in new window

There is a list of constants like vbCyan, you'll find it in the Object Browser(F2) if you search for ColorConstants.

See attached example with a Shape being used as a command button, with clicks toggling between grey and cyan.  Code in a public module:

Sub This_Click()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wks As Worksheet

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    Set wks = wkb.ActiveSheet
    
    With wks.Shapes("MYButton")
        If .Fill.ForeColor.RGB = vbCyan Then
            .Fill.BackColor.RGB = 15921906 'grey
            .Fill.ForeColor.RGB = 15921906 'grey
        Else
            .Fill.BackColor.RGB = vbCyan
            .Fill.ForeColor.RGB = vbCyan
        End If
    End With
End Sub

Open in new window


And, in the Sheet1 codepage, we have the CommandButton1 click event, pretty much doing the same thing:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

    If CommandButton1.BackColor = &H8000000F Then  'default color
        CommandButton1.BackColor = vbCyan
    Else
        CommandButton1.BackColor = &H8000000F
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window
