What I have:
Userform =  userform1
Multipage control =  Pages 1 to 9

I found this code:

But this code does not place the combobox on a userform and specifically "Page9"  ?





Sub CreateComboBox1()
    With ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.ComboBox.1", _
                Link:=False, DisplayAsIcon:=False, Left:=50, Top:=80, Width:=100, _
                Height:=15)
        With .Object
            .AddItem "Date"
            .AddItem "Player"
            .AddItem "Team"
            .AddItem "Goals"
            .AddItem "Number"
        End With
    End With
End Sub

This code will add a combobox to Page9 of a multipage at runtime.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim cbo As MSForms.ComboBox

    Set cbo = Me.MultiPage1.Pages(8).Controls.Add("Forms.Combobox.1")
    cbo.Left = 10
    cbo.Top = 10
    cbo.List = Array("Date", "Player", "Team", "Goals", "Number")
    
End Sub

Thanks, The reason i was trying to find code using the
            .AddItem "Date"
            .AddItem "Player"
            .AddItem "Team"
            .AddItem "Goals"
            .AddItem "Number"

Is because I may have sometimes 50 items or more to add to the combobox ?

or maybe if i have to use another line, (using your code) how to multiline it.(to extend the array list to another line would be fine) ?


Also
imnorie, just a question...I noticed browsing through code that most show code using  Initialize event.  This can be done regardlesss from a command button or some event from another combobox ?

Thanks very much fordraiders

You can change the code I posted to use AddItem.
With cbo
       .AddItem "Date"
       .AddItem "Player"
       .AddItem "Team"
       .AddItem "Goals"
       .AddItem "Number"
End With

Open in new window

By the way, where will the 50 (or whatever) items be coming from?

You could call the code from a command button click or some other event, I posted for the Initialize event because your title mentioned adding at runtime.

Oh, thought they might have been stored somewhere, eg a worksheet.

That would have made it a lot easier to populate the combobox and would avoid hard-coding.
