Hi

I have a VB.net Add-in  that is open at the same time as an Excel file containing macros. I need to run code in VBA to open a form on the VB.net side. What clever way can this be done by firing an event in VBA that the VB.net side picks up in order to run it's code.

One way is to have the .NET addin create a (hidden) commandbar with a button. You can then use the commandbarbuttons's execute method to start code in the .NET addin.

Here is some code I used for an add-in I have:

Public Sub LaunchPrecedents()
    Dim octl As CommandBarControl
    For Each octl In Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls
        If octl.Tag = "RefTreeAnalyser" Then
            octl.Controls(1).Execute
        End If
    Next
End Sub
