Excel Activex controls act strange when projected
Posted on 2013-10-31
I recently began using activex controls because of the additional formatting I can do that isn't possible with form controls. I went to demo this file for a client, so we had my computer plugged into a projector. During the demo, I selected an activex dropdown to change the selection, and clicking on it caused the entire dropdown control to get larger, and continuing to click on it would cause it to increase in size each time, to the point where you couldn't see anything else on the screen. It was totally bizarre. I have only witnessed this behavior when my computer was connected to a projector. The controls all work perfectly when I am not connected to a projector. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, what did you do about it? I really don't want to go back to using form controls. Thanks.
