You can also use the FindControl method to return a CommandBarControl object.
This is only available on the CommandBars object.
If no controls are found that fit the criteria then "Nothing" is returned.
If this method find two or more controls that fit the search criteria, the first control that is found is returned.
CommandBars.FindControl(Type, Id, Tag, Visible, Recursive)
|Type||can be any of the above types|
|Id||The identifier of the control. This identifies the action performed by the control.|
|Tag||The tag value of the control to be searched for|
|Visible||False||True to indicate that only visible controls are to be searched.|
|Recursive||False||True to indicate the commandbar and all of its pop ups sub toolbars are to be included in the search.|
The Recursive argument is only available when used on the CommandBar object.
Set objStandardControl = CommandBars("Standard").FindControl(Id:=100, Recursive:=True)
Set objCommandBar = CommandBars("Standard").FindControl(Id:=100, Recursive:=True).CommandBar
Finding Built-in Commands
Every built-in command (inc menus) has a unique Id associated with it.
This is the best property to use when searching for built-in commands.
Finding Custom Commands
This method can be used to quickly locate controls on toolbars and menus.
This can be really useful when working with your custom toolbars and menus because you can assign a Tag property to all of these commands.
Assuming that all your commands have a unique Tag assigned to them this method will return the corresponding CommandBarControl is returned
This argument specifies if you want to recursively search the whole command bar including any drop-down menus and extension controls.
There are no controls passed the third level.
The default argument is False.
Public Sub SearchForID()
Dim objcommandbar As CommandBar
Dim objcontrol As CommandBarControl
For Each objcommandbar In CommandBars
Set objcontrol = objcommandbar.FindControl(ID:=283, Recursive:=True)
If Not (objcontrol Is Nothing) Then
Using the Tag property
Dim objCommandBar As Office.CommandBar
Dim objControl As Office.CommandBarControl
Set objCommandBar = Application.CommandBars("Formatting")
Set objControl = objCommandBar.FindControl(Tag:="UniqueTag")
Dim objControl As CommandBarControl
Dim objControl2 As CommandBarControl
Dim objControl3 As CommandBarControl
Set objControl = Application.CommandBars("Cell").FindControl(ID:=3125)
moves the control to end
Set objControl2 = objControl.Move(CommandBars("Cell"))
Set objControl3 = objControl2.Move(CommandBars("Cell"),7)
