Hi EE

Using Ribbon creator I have created a customer ribbon when Open there is my custom ribbon. My question how do I get it to open a form asscociated with a button. In the basRibbonCallbacks there is the following section

'Button

Sub OnActionButton(control As IRibbonControl)
    ' Callbackname in XML File "onAction"

    ' Callback for event button click
    ' Callback fuer Button Click
   
    Select Case control.id
       
        Case Else
                DoCmd.OpenForm "frmDailyInspectionStart"
            'MsgBox "Button """ & control.id & """ clicked" & vbCrLf & _
                           '"Es wurde auf Button """ & control.id & """ im Ribbon geklickt", _
                           'vbInformation
    End Select

End Sub
I have used the docmd.openform  after the else statement so now I run the app and click a button that form opens which ever button I click. How do I link a button with a form. Control.ID ???

Any help appreciated

You would need to add Case statements for each control you want to handle. Ribbon Creater will do that for you, however, if you check the "Copy basRibbonCallbacks to the database", and "Replace basRibbonCallbacks in the Selected Database", and "Add SelectCase Statments for all Controls in basRibbonCallbacks". All of those are located on the Finish tab.

Note that if you do this, all work you may have done in basRibbonCallbacks will be erased, so be sure you have a backup before proceeding.

Once that basRibbonCallback is in your database, you then just go to the OnAction function, and write code in each Case statement.
