[SOLVED] Hide/Unhide toolbar

Q: [SOLVED] Hide/Unhide toolbar


I have a button that when clicked calls a fucntion "customtoolbar.hidden = true" to hide the custom toolbar. When I wish to unhide the toolbar, I go to view > toolbars, however I noticed that the customtoolbar is still checked and when I click on it the toolbar does not appear!

Any ideas why?

Thank you

Welcome to TSF!!

If I am understanding you correctly you are wanting to make your toolbars appear and then re-appear. The simple answer the that question is to use the F11 key. That will make all your tool and task bars disappear. Then when you want them back just hit F11 again. I wouldn't bother with all this changing the about:config if you don't have to.

Alright, here's what I got going on:

I want to be able to have a completely clear desktop, void of icons and start toolbar with a hot key. However, I would like to be able have access to the start toolbar and able to have desktop icons available to me. This is where the hot key would come into play: the ability to hide/unhide both sets (icons and toolbar) simultaneously. Does anyone know of a program or registry hack that would accomplish this?

A:Solved: excel hide/unhide on cell value

You need to trigger a macro which can be called from the form.

When a value is chosen, the macro triggered will be something like

To hide:
Range(Cells(6,1),Cells(25,1)).entirerow.Hidden = true

To Unhide:
Range(Cells(6, 1), Cells(25, 1)).EntireRow.Hidden = False

I will eventually want this to work on all worksheets in the workbook as their data may change as the "linked tables" are refreshed. The linked tables are from Access.

What I want to do is look in column Q to see if the result of the calculation in that cell is 0. If so, I want the row hidden. I don't want to hide empty rows, just the one where the calculation =0. If the data in the workbook, i.e. the linked tables are updated, then I want any rows that have changed from 0 to another value to then become unhidden.

I have been searching for VBA code to auto hide/unhide rows in Excel 2007 based on the value in a specific column. I found the following code, but can't seem to get it to work quite right. I changed some of the criteria to fit my worksheet. The problem is that it hides all rows that are empty even though I changed the criteria from "" to 0. Also, this does not unhide rows that may refresh with a value.

I would really appreciate some guidance. My Access and Excel skills are pretty good, but when it comes to incorporating VBA into the mix, I get a little lost.

I have my taskbar set to hide. When I move my mouse to the edge of the screen, it will pop out sometimes and sometimes it is necessary for me to size-down the program that fills the screen, move the mouse to the edge of the screen again and it pops out but goes behind the program that partially fills the screen.

This has me believing the taskbar pops out all the time but behind whatever maximized program is on the screen. This behavior is not restricted to one maximized program and is sporadic.

Yesterday I created a code that hides/unhides rows when checkbox is clickedand goes something like this:

Rows("22:24").EntireRow.Hidden = Not Rows("22:24").EntireRow.Hidden

But now i only want to hide/unhide specified cells. So how can i modify the code above to do this or do I need some new code.

Thanks for help

A:macro to hide/unhide cells

"hide/unhide specified cells" - I take it, you mean rows, not cells.

What's your criteria for hiding/unhiding the row? All you need to do is loop through each row in your criteria column, and then program this in as your hide/unhide criteria.

Pseudo Code:


Sub hideAndUnhide()
[INDENT]For Each Cell In Range("A1",Range("A1").End(xlDown))
[INDENT]If(Cell.Value = 1) Then
[INDENT]Rows(Cell.Row).EntireRow.Hidden = True [/INDENT]
[INDENT]Rows(Cell.Row).EntireRow.Hidden = False[/INDENT]
Next Cell
End Sub

If you let me know your data layout, and your criteria, I should be able to make a proper version for you. Even better would be to post your excel sheet with dummy data (remove any sensitive data).

I have two issues that I am banging my head over.

1) I have a page with 4 tables. The top 2 tables each have a link that when clicked will bring up one of the bottom two tables. I have this working now where the bottom tables are hidden until the link is clicked then becomes visible.

The problem is the space is still being taken up by the other hidden table. So if I click the second link, there is this huge gap and then the other table is visible. Any idea on how to not have the gap? I tried using "document.write" but the way I wrote it screwed up the layout.
2) Problem two is similar. I have a form select, that when option 2 is selected I would like to make a table visible. I tried using the same code as the one above with an anchor tag on the second select but it did not work. I then changed it to onSelect and still nothing. Any ideas on how to make a selection make a table visible?

Thanks in advance.

I want to no how I can hide gadgets from the command line.

I'm constantly frustrated by the fact that the gadgets layout is destroyed when I rotate my screen. So I set a scheduled task to unpack and overwrite the ini file for the gadgets.
But it doesn't work reliably (nothing does with the pathetic task Sheduler). The task doesn't run on time (or doesn't run at all) and such the layout is still broken. So I was thinking I could hide it via command line, restore the ini, then show them again. (With three tasks with a delay, because the task scheduler is garbage and it wont work otherwise, if it'll work at all.)

Hey all

New here and new to VBA so I apologize if this is the incorrect place to ask this question or if I'm not including enough information.

Basically I have two forms, one form that is a cost est. form and another form is a proposal form (client sees this one). I have the proposal form pulling information over from the cost est. form. What I would like to do is on the proposal form if rows c13:c277 are blank (no data pulled from the cost est. sheet) they will hide. But when I add data (a number) into the cost est. form the proposal form pulls that and unhides that row.

I've tried all kinds of VBA code and none seem to do what I want. I can get the rows to hide but then not unhide. I don't have code to show because I have deleted it when it didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way in Excel (I'm running Excel 2010, but have access to older versions) to hide/unhide cells based on hyperlinks or defined areas? I've hyperlinked so that we could go to specific parts of the document, but that does me little good because we have to hide them or the doc gets to big. Is there a way to have the hyperlink (or the cell hyperlinked) unhide the area? I've attached the document (removed all company info, but the lay out is there) so that you can see what I'm referring to.

Hi there! I'm new to using these forums, but have spent some time scouring them from time to time to look for simple solutions to any excel/VBA problems I'm having. I consider myself relatively intermediate to advanced in Excel as far as formulas and spreadsheet creation goes, however VBA is foreign to me, and an area I'd love to learn. If any of you have recommendations on a good resource to begin learning VBA, please send it my way. And now....onto my macro question.

I've got a workbook with many tabs, and one or two input tabs feed information into another summary tab using various lookup and index formulas. There are any where from 40 to 80 rows to be qualified depending on the specific summary sheet (therefore I will likely need the macro to reference only the active sheet as it needs to work the same way on different sheets independent of each other). What I would like to do is if the result of the formula in column A of the summary sheet is "----------" (starts at A7) then I would like to hide that row, and if the data is changed on the input tab to result in anything other than the qualifying "----------", for that row to be unhidden. If this can be done dynamically that'd be great, however, if a button needs to be put into the spreadsheet to execute the macro, that will be fine too.

Thanks so much in advance for your help, and I promise I'll do my best to begin learning VBA so I can help contribute in return!

I like NoScript and have used it for quite some time, but there is one thing that is annoying about it.

After I get the permissions set for a given page that I visit periodically, is it possible to keep the NoScript tool bar that shows what I've not allowed on that page from coming up? It seems like on so many websites now places that I don't want to open or to link to, like Facebook and various advertising sites, want to open or establish links.

I get real tired of closing that every time I change to a page that I've been to before.

I'd very much like to have it only show up the first time I visit a place and then not show
up for subsequent visits unless I purposefully call it up to change permissions. It seems so often that it takes up just enuf of the screen to cover something so I have to scroll to see the whole page which I wouldn't have to if it wasn't showing.

Can anyone give any advice on how to make my second hard drive visible again?

Here is a link to a screenshot of what partition magic see: http://www.forcetran.f9.co.uk/bootmagic.html

A:[SOLVED] I cannot unhide a hidden partition

BootMagic will hide all the primary partitions except the one you're booting from. If your second HDD is just for backup, you could set the partition on it as extended and logical instead of primary.

I Have a MEDION desktop P4010D with Windows 7 pre-installed and I was using Partition Commander to install another operating system ( Windows XP Pro) and then everything came undone.

Windows XP would not install ( I think this has something to do with missing scsi drivers So I will attempt a slipstream procedure I read about eleswhere but first I want to unhide partition2) and now Windows 7 won't reboot.
There are 4 primary partitions already on the 1Tb HDD. The 1st (active partition ~ 100Mb) and 4th (~ 1Gb) Partitions seem to be secret and did not appear in Windows Explorer when computer was working.
The Other two primary partitions were 'C' (~881Gb Windows 7 installation but not active and also on Partition 2 which is now HIDDEN and not associated with a Volume) & 'D' (~50Gb Recovery Files)

How Do I change Partition 2 which has the Windows 7 installation back so it is no longer hidden ?

I can't get GDisk.exe on a Win98SE startup DVD to work as Windows 7 does not seem to allow it to boot. ( I am guessing there is something on either the 1st or 4th partitions which may be responsible for preventing
it to boot from the Win98SE startup DVD.)
DiskPArt will not UnHide partitions.

All I seem to have access to at the moment is the DOS command prompt ( I assume it is DOS it is The Black window with cursor not sure about anything with Windows 7)

Thanks in Advance !

Awhile back I had to unhide a volume. I was instructed to replace some value with "07" ( I think). Perhaps in the registry or under DiskPart. I just don't remember as, like I said, it's been awhile.
Does this ring a bell with anyone?

A:Solved: Unhide a drive (volume)

That would be in a partition table editor. It would not have anything to do with an operating system or the contents of the drive.

But there are easier ways of unhiding drives than finding a way to edit the table. This is very difficult from Windows or many other OS's since they actively block hardware access that is not through the HAL, and direct disk access would be definitely prohibited.

I decided to hide the first couple of columns in the spreadsheet. But for some reason I can't get them back. I tried selecting the first visible column, the whole spreadsheet, the View menu. Nothing. The columns won't unhide. And yes I need their data.

For the record, hiding and then unhiding works fine when it's not the first column.

I have the latest version of Firefox (computer runs on Windows XP Home with latest patches and service packs). I'm having problems with my Google toolbar and my booksmarks toolbar. They function just fine. Now, when I right-click, then I can choose which toolbars can be displayed or not. I encounter the following problem. If I don't want Google toolbar to be displayed, the bookmarks toolbar vanish. And if I turn off the bookmarks toolbar, Google vanishes. So obviously, there's a confusion between the toolbar-paths. De-installing Google toolbar and re-installing didn't help. How can I correct this problem?
