Excel Spin Buttons

Spin Button

In the toolbox the spin  button  has this icon   VBA for Excel spin buttons icon.

You can ask a user to enter a value directly in a text box but you can make things a little more attaractive by using a text box and a spin button.

The spin button is not really used by itself. Because the spin button does not show its value it is usually used with a text box. The text box shows a number and by clicking on the arrows of the spin button the value in the text box is increased (or decreased) by 1, or 5 or 10...by whatever value that is set within the properties of the spin button.


Among the other properties of the spin buttons  are:

- Min is the minimum value of the spin button. It can be negative
Max is the maximum  value of the spin button. It can be negative
- Small is the value of the change when the user clicks on the arrows
- Large is the value of the change when the user clicks on the scroll bar of the spin button.

To organize your discovery of Excel macros, the downloadable Tutorial on Excel Macros is divided in three sections (all 3  sections part of the single download):

Section 1: Excel Macros Programming (Chapters 1 to 10)
This section is about recording, writing, modifying and testing macros in the Visual Basic Editor. You will also learn about security and discover "events" (an event is what starts the macro).

Section 2: Excel VBA Vocabulary (Chapters 11 to 23)
Developing a macro is communicating with Excel and to do so you need to use a language called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). In section 2 you will learn all the VBA vocabulary that is essential to work with business data (accounting, sales, production and others).

Section 3: Forms and Controls in VBA for Exce (Chapters 24 to 33)
The userform is a small or large dialog window that you create and allows the user to submit values that will be used by your macros. To these userforms you will add controls (command buttons, text boxes, list boxes and others) and program them.
