Loop Through All Form Control Checkboxes On Excel Spreadsheet
What This VBA Code Does
This code will loop through each of your Form Control checkboxes and let you ‘do something’ based on if the checkbox is checked or not.
This code will loop through all checkbox objects on the ActiveSheet and test if the box is checked or not.
Sub CheckboxLoop() 'PURPOSE: Loop through each Form Control Checkbox on the ActiveSheet 'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com Dim cb As CheckBox For Each cb In ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes If cb.Value = xlOn Then 'Do something if checked... ElseIf cb.Value = xlOff Then 'Do something if not checked... End If Next cb End Sub
Alternatively, you can loop through all shapes on the ActiveSheet and test to see if it is a checkbox prior to checking for it’s value.
Sub CheckboxLoop() 'PURPOSE: Loop through each Form Control Checkbox on the ActiveSheet 'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com/ Dim cb As Shape 'Loop through Checkboxes For Each cb In ActiveSheet.Shapes If cb.Type = msoFormControl Then If cb.FormControlType = xlCheckBox Then If cb.ControlFormat.Value = xlOn Then 'Do something if checked... ElseIf cb.ControlFormat.Value = xlOff Then 'Do something if not checked... End If End If End If Next cb End Sub
