Trying to find a way to set max/min values for form spinners. The value of max/min will depend on cell values. Thus far, I have only found VBA information on the activex control spinners. I have managed to get the activex spinners to do the job, but they really look like crap. Whenever I access the activex spinner, these little boxes appear within the control, making the arrows indiscernible (see below).
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Maybe the "ControlFormat" property is what you need?

Gary

Code:
Public Sub Test()

Dim oSpinner As Shape

'Assumes spinner name "Spinner 1" exsists on active sheet.
Set oSpinner = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Spinner 1")

oSpinner.ControlFormat.Max = 20
oSpinner.ControlFormat.Min = 5
oSpinner.ControlFormat.Value = 10


End Sub
