Vba application screenupdating off
While Excel will set this back to True whenever focus is passed back to Excel (your macro finishes) in most cases, it pays to play it safe and include the code at the end.You may even find in some cases that Screen Updating is set back to true before your recorded macro completes.As there is no command in Excel to refresh a worksheet in the way a user form can be refreshed, it is necessary to use a trick to force Excel to update the screen.The following commands seem to do the trick: This is not directly answering your question at all, but simply providing an alternative.Status Bar = False ''//Return control of the Status bar to Excel Application.Screen Updating = True ''//Turn on screen updating End Sub Text boxes in worksheets are sometimes not updated when their text or formatting is changed, and even the Do Event command does not help.It also means that we cannot tell the macro recorder to not record our steps of selecting cells, sheets and scrolling around, even though the selecting of cells, sheets and scrolling is not needed in true VBA code.As a result, of all this selecting and scrolling, the screen flickers whenever your recorded macro is played back. Screen Updating Those that are familiar with VBA code may also be aware of the term Application. Unfortunately those that really need to know about this term (those that can only record macros) are often not aware of it.
If this is the case, you could insert the following code at the front of your sub: I've found that this often speeds up whatever code I'm working with so much that having to alert the user to the progress is unnecessary.And usually when you write your code, you’re just trying to get things to work. But after a while you notice your code is beginning to get very slow when it runs. I mentioned that the issue is that the screen is constantly updating, which is causing the code to run slowly. The code runs much faster when there’s less real estate to update on your screen. Screen Updating = True End Sub Now the code runs at 1.4 seconds for me, which is a huge improvement.It’s not as fast as it used to be and it can begin to get pretty frustrating waiting a long time for your code to finish. Color = vb Black Else ' else, color the cell light gray cell. If you think about it, if there were of the screen to process, it should run faster, right? Now it should make sense why it’s a good idea to turn off Public Sub Add Content To Sheet() Application. Color = vb Black Else ' else, color the cell light gray cell. You might encounter an issue with Do Events if you are using event triggers in your form.For instance, any keys pressed while a function is running will be sent by Do Events The keyboard input will be processed before the screen is updated, so if you are changing cells on a spreadsheet by holding down one of the arrow keys on the keyboard, then the cell change event will keep firing before the main function finishes.
