Locating Form Control Buttons


New Member
Jul 15, 2015
I am trying to create and locate Form Control Buttons in a Worksheet using VBA code. I am trying to get the buttons to align with cell boundaries on the worksheet. What I don't know is how to tell the ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add code to align the button boundaries with cell boundaries.

E.G. cell D3 is a merged cell (D3:E4). I would like to place a button on cell D3 such that the button boundaries match the cell boundaries.

Any thoughts?

One way

Sub CreateButton()
    Dim cb As Object, rCell As Range
    With Sheets("Sheet1") ' <--Adjust sheetname
        Set rCell = .Range("D3:E4")
        Set cb = .Buttons.Add(rCell.Left, rCell.Top, rCell.Width, rCell.Height)
        With cb
            .Caption = "Test"
            .OnAction = "Test"
        End With
    End With
End Sub

Sub Test()
    MsgBox "Hello World!"
End Sub
